Eagles Face Tough Loss Against Cashion

Body
On Friday night, the Eagles hosted the number one team in Class A, Cashion. On Cashion's first possession, safety Chris Sanders swooped in to pick off a pass on just the second play from scrimmage. After the offense stalled, the Eagles had to punt the ball back. The Tigers moved the ball and scored on a pass, moving across our defense. The Eagles quickly pushed down the field with some strikes from Sanders, Joe Jackson, and, on fourth down, Deondre Dunn takes a fake punt to keep the drive moving. The Eagles capitalized with a score after methodically pressing forward, bringing them within one point in the 1st quarter.
