Eagles drop one to Lions in 77-0 loss

By Bobby Batson
 
The Hearne Eagles tangled with a bunch of hungry Lions last Friday night in Franklin and came out on the short end of a 77-0 score. Franklin jumped on the Eagles quickly for 35 points in the first quarter and didn’t let up until the second half. When the final whistle blew, there was no doubt that the Lions deserve their #3 state ranking among state 3A schools. The Eagles could not get their offense working in the first half and turned the ball over six times, four times by interceptions and twice on fumbles

Another Mercy Stoppage

by Michael Cotton

 

It will be a hot time in the old town tonight, as the Calvert alumni and followers gather at Wilkerson Field to witness the Trojans’ annual Homecoming game. This year’s version of the Trojans has been a pleasure to watch thus far. The team is averaging over 50 points per game, has allowed only 28 points all season, are currently ranked #2 in the State, and have their sights set on a State Title. Not only are they 5-0, but they have mercy ruled every team they have faced this season.

by Bobby Batson

 

Hearne’s Lady Eagles have continued to struggle in district play and lost to the Lady Trojans from Troy 25-7 and 25-12 last Friday in a home contest. The local ladies are still trying to establish their consistency throughout the matches and are unable to match the opponents serves and spikes. They show spurts of competitive play, but are unable to retain focus.

A force to be reckoned with

by Michael Cotton
 
After their big win against the #3 Division I ranked Abbott Panthers, the Calvert Trojans have served notice to every team in Division II. The message is they are a force that must be reckoned with going forward. This week’s opponent The Waco Methodist Bulldogs are about to find out just how strong a force these Trojans are. Last season the Bulldogs lost to Calvert 74-26. This season they have started out 1-1 on the season losing their opener 59-13 then bouncing back to win their 2nd game 86-68. The Bulldog offense behind quarterback Brandon Gange, and do everything athletes Chayce Green, Prince Easley, and Marvin Jordan, clicked well and often in the 2nd outing after struggling mightily in their opener.

Eagles heading to Burton this week

By Bobby Batson
 
The Hearne Eagles will hit the road again this Friday as they try to break into the win column against the Burton Panthers of District 13AA Division II. Burton will by trying to bounce back after being trounced 34-0 by Louise last week. Previous to that, they beat Chilton 28-19 and fell to Thorndale 35-27. Burton went 8-4 last season and has made the playoffs for five straight years. Seven two-way starters return from last year’s team. They are expected to make a run for the district title, but have the misfortune of being in the same district with Bremond. Last year, Burton dominated Hearne 54-6 and hopefully the Eagles will be after some payback.
