East Eagles Football Round-Up
East Vs. Maplewood
East remains hot as they check another opponent off their schedule. The Eagles remain undefeated as they defeated the Maplewood Panthers in a convincing 36-7 win. East Nashville offense started out slow as they matched a season low in first quarter points with 6.
The defense set the tone for this game forcing a critical turnover-on-downs in the red zone on the Panthers first possession. The defense stood its ground all night forcing two red-zone turnovers, three turnover-on-downs, two interceptions, and one forced fumble.
The defense did give up some big plays, but when a stop was needed a stop was made. Junior Deandre Gavins(#7) led the defense with nine tackles. With a great overall game, Daniel Brown (#1) was named the night’s defensive player of the game. The defense was in route to another shut-out until a fourth quarter blocked punt was returned for a touchdown. Making Maplewood the first team to score on the Eagles this season.
The offense found their swagger in the second half scoring 22 second-half points. Senior leader Isiah Upton (#2) displayed the type of headache he can give opposing coaches. The senior quarterback went for a season high in rushing yards and rushing touchdowns. (205 rush yds. , 3 rush TD’s). Eagles senior had a QB rate of 104.8 completing 50% of his passes for 125 yards and one touchdown. Running back Lennox Mcafee (#10) extends his streak to five games with over 100 yards rushing and adding one touchdown.
East faces arguably its toughest opponent next Friday as the Pearl-Cohn Firebirds (6-1) look to give the Eagles (6-0) their first loss of the season. This should be a down to the wire game in Commodores stadium. Come out and support your eagles as they look to remain unbeaten. Game time: 10/17 @ 7p.m. –Keaven Burton
