Eagleville stayed unbeaten in District 9-A play with a hard-fought 10-3 win at Forrest on Friday night.

The Eagles improved to 4-1 overall and 2-0 in district heading into next week’s homecoming game against Grace Baptist.

Chris Hale broke off a 25-yard TD run on Eagleville’s opening drive, and the Eagles defense held firm the remainder of the night.

Hale narrowly missed the 100-yard rushing mark, and Ryan Jordan passed for 70 yards. Luke Duross made a 33-yard field goal in the fourth quarter for the final margin.

Before that, Forrest (3-2, 1-1) drove inside Eagleville’s 10-yard line in the third quarter, but the Eagles defense protected the goal line. Forrest settled for a field goal.

“Our defense was exceptional. They put together a good drive and had us on our heels, but we stopped them,” Eagleville coach Steve Carson said. “We did not tackle well some of the night, but we ran to the ball really well. We got hats to the ball every play, and bowed our necks.”
