Homecoming for the Hearne Eagles
The Eagles are looking to spread their wings this weekend for homecoming as they host the Rosebud-Lott Cougars.
The Eagles lost a heartbreaker last year to the Cougars 37-34 in Rosebud. A little revenge would sure be good things for the Eagles who need a district win to avoid falling to 0-2 in District play. It would be a tough hole to try and climb out of considering their remaining schedule. Having already lost to district favorite Centerville 37-15, the Eagles need this win to keep pace with the other teams fighting for a playoff spot.
The fight is on between the Eagles, Moody, Reisel, Bosqueville, and Rosebud-Lott for the 3rd spot behind Centerville and Crawford.
The Eagles need to win at home to have any chance and that all starts with Homecoming. Maybe NFL Hall of Famer John Randle or former UH great Patrick Edwards will drop by and offer their words of inspiration. It’s a big week for the Eagle faithful and they realize what is on the line.
Hearne played a valiant game on Friday against Centerville but still lost. The Eagles drew first blood after receiving the opening kick off they drove and scored on a Tromaine Miles pass to Kyle Castilleja to go up 7-0.
They would maintain that lead until a safety and a rushing touchdown by the Tigers gave them a 9-7 halftime lead. Again the Eagles refused to break stopping the Tigers to start the 2nd half and driving to score on a 55-yard Marcjavion McGrew run to go up 13-9. A 2-point conversion pass was complete and Hearne led 15-9 early in the 3rd. That’s where the Eagles trending up ended.
Two 3rd quarter touchdown passes and two rushing scores in the 4th put the game out of reach and Centerville cruised in with a somewhat deceiving 37-15 victory. The Eagles played a lot better than the score indicated and they will need that same effort on Friday, when the Cougars from Rosebud-Lott come calling. It’s “Homecoming” so everything will be on the table.
