East Eagles Football Round-Up
Thanks to Keaven Burton for sharing his game summaries.
East vs Whites Creek
In the Eagle’s first district game of the season they took on Whites Creek. The Eagles impressively took care of business in a 45-0 blowout to start their three- game road stretch.
The Eagles had no problem once again executing their offense. It was another day at the office managing the explosive Eagles offense for senior quarterback Isiah Upton. Not having a great night through the air percentage- wise, the dual- threat quarterback still managed to throw for 140 yards and one touchdown and rushed for 150 yards scoring one touchdown.
Senior running back Lennox McAfee (#10) continues to display his nice running ability(15 carries, 157 yards).Scoring four touchdowns and averaging 10.5 yards a carry, McAfee was well deserved of being named the overall and offensive player of the game.
Shutting out their first two opponents the Eagles defense can add the Cobras to their list of teams that have not scored on them this season. East defense increased the intensity and pressure against the Cobras, recording a season high in tackles with 67 and tying their season high with two interceptions. Senior defensive lineman Tywan Jones led the defense with 10 tackles. That wasn’t enough as teammate DeVarius Cortner (#3) took home defensive player of the game, finishing with 7 tackles one of them being for a loss. With the win, your Eagles move to an undefeated 3-0 (1-0 in the district). The Eagles look to remain undefeated as they travel to Westmoreland, Tennessee this Friday to take on the Westmoreland Eagles (3-0). Game time: 9/12 @ 7p.m.
East vs Ezell HardingHomecoming 2015
Homecoming 2014 for the Eagles fans was no disappointment as they watched East cruise to a 56-0 win Friday night. The Eagles returned home soaring after not missing a beat in their 3-0 road game sweep.
The Eagles attacked Ezell-Harding’s defense with a smash mouth run the ball offense. The speed of the Eagles was hard for Ezell-Harding to adjust to. East had four players who averaged over 10 yards a carry against the defense. Senior running back and teams leading rusher added to his already great season rushing( 5 carries, 135 yards).
Completing four of his seven passes, senior quarterback didn’t have to do as much through the air as most of his completions where well thrown bombs thrown all over the defense. As we know the Eagles quarterback has a set of wheels on him as well. The senior averaged well over 10 yards a carry, rushing for 75 yards on two carries. He finished the game with three touchdown(two passing, one rushing).
The eagles had its first scare of a team scoring on them this season after a lost fumble by the offense putting Ezell-Harding on East 25-yard -line. The scare didn’t last long as the defense flexed their muscles and ended the possession with a blocked field-goal returned for a touchdown by Devarius Cortner (#3). That happened in the first quarter and was the closest Ezell-Harding came to scoring the rest of the night. The Eagles defense has yet to be scored on this season showing the poise and discipline of these young men. Teams are starting to think twice about how they are going to approach the Eagles.
Player of the game honors went to senior Devarius Cortner (#3) who made plays on both sides of the ball for the Eagles. Recording (12 rushing yards, 70 rec. yards), he also snatched the eagles only interception of the night returning it 50 yards. Not to mention the exciting blocked field returned for a touchdown.
With the win, your Eagles climb to 6-0 (2-0 in the district). East hopes to add to their six game win streak as the Maplewood Panthers come and look to give the Eagle their first loss of the season. Gametime: Home: 10/03 @ 7 p.m.
