EAGLEVILLE – Channeling more than just the home team advantage, Eagleville picked up its first win of the season Friday, beating visiting East Robertson 14-6 at Talon Field.

Eagleville’s score was solidified in the first half of the game, seeing seven points in the first quarter and seven points in the second quarter. The Eagles’ defense did the rest to help preserve the win in both teams’ Region 4-2A opener.

Running back Rodney Turner’s first-quarter touchdown put the Eagles (1-2, 1-0) up early. Graham Hatcher added the second score.

On the team’s efforts, East Robertson’s Coach Broadrick said, “I feel that both teams did a good job, but in a lot of ways I feel that we outplayed them. We played hard. We’ve just got to learn to finish games and not make as many mental mistakes.”

Freshman Ethan Cobb continued his outstanding season, completing 8-of-13 passing for 143 yards.

Eagleville was coming off a one-point loss to Clarksville Academy. The Eagles opened the season with a loss to Lewis County.

“It was the first region game, first win of the season, and a big game for us,” Eagleville coach Steve Carson said. “I’m proud of our defense for keeping them out three quarters of the game.”
