The Morgan Eagles faced off with a very talented Johnson County Sports Association. The Eagles seemed to sputter on offense and struggled to consistently put pressure on the Lions. The Eagles had several opportunities to get the ball back and would let the Lions slide out of their grasp. The final score was 76-27. Some notables for the Eagles are Derik Davenport ran the ball 7 times for 92 yards 1 TD and completed a 58 yard TD pass to Gerardo Monroy. Ivan Alvarez ran 9 times for 45 yards with a 20 yard TD on the ground, 17 tackles. Gerardo Monroy completed a 36 yard TD pass to Davenport. It was great to watch the team get frustrated and learn to just deal with the misfortunes of the game. I really commend on the perseverance of the players and fighting through the adversity in the game. The easiest thing they could have done was quit. The Eagles showed great poise in attempting to cut the Lions lead. The Eagles have a bye next week then begin District play against the Cranfills Gap Lions.
