Morgan Eagles vs. Aquilla Cougars
Last Friday night our Morgan Eagles went against the Aquilla Cougars. This game was one of the most exhilarating matches I had ever seen. It started off as a bad game because our boys were down at least 10 points or more, but that didn’t stop our boys. We started getting our points from free throws and started to pick up the pace after half time when the game really picked up. The Morgan Eagles were racking their points up and our boys weren't giving up yet. The ball was being sent back and forth constantly as both teams had a great defense and would steal the ball. Emilio Villalovos was key in bringing us from behind as he began to sink 3 pointer after three pointer. This was a big asset to our win and, with one point behind, Gerardo Monroy #11 scored a layup and won the game for us. In the end our Eagles pushed through and won by 1 point on the board. After the game the crowd ran from their seats and cheered and screamed to their heart's content. The game’s final score was 57-56.
