The Eagles exacted a small measure of revenge after their season opening loss to Immanuel with a 21-0 victory over the Fowler Redcats on Sept. 4.

The Eagles, who struggled offensively without star fullback Rene Charest, ?04, against Immanuel, again struggled in the first half against Fowler, according to head coach Jon Hall.

“We had a difficult time in the first half but we got things going during the second half and that definitely helped boost our confidence level after our loss to Immanuel,” Hall said. “We learned a lot through this last game in making adjustments and playing smarter in the second half.”

The Eagles took a 7-0 lead into halftime following quarterback Seth Fisher’s, ’04, 15-yard touchdown pass to Carson Belmont, ’05. The team then expanded upon their lead in the third quarter with Fisher’s touchdown run.

“I was pleased with my performance and the overall effort of our team,” Fisher said. “We finally got some points on the board and doing what we do best–scoring touchdowns.”

The Eagles next host Farmersville at Clark Stadium on Sept. 12 staring at 5:30 P.M.
