 The Varsity Football Team lost to Brandon friday evening 22-15.  The loss dropped the Eagles record to 4-3.  They need a victory in their last 2 games to make the play-offs.  Jake Marshall led the defense with 13 tackles, with Andy Roberts added 11.  Gage Smith pass to Austin Buerkel and a Noah Sargent run accounted for the Eagles scores. 
The Varsity Football Team spotted Kearsley 7 points before the Eagles ran off 28 points in beating the Hornets 48-17.  QB Gage Smith threw for 251 yards and 3 touchdowns, and also scored one himself.  Garrett Beaudry and Marshall Ryan scored 2 TD's each, And Noah Sargent returned an interception 60 yards for another score.  Kevin Bates finished the scoring on a 5 yard run.  Cam Cook was good on 6 of 7 extra points. Austin McNeill led the defense with 9 tackles and 2 sacks.  The Eagles play host to Lapeer West this Friday.
Friday night the Varsity Football team played their first home game of the season. It took a little bit to get going but once the Eagles settled in, they beat visiting Clio 38-12. It was 35-6 at the half after a strong performance by the defense, led by Andy Roberts' 2 interceptions, one of which led to a TD. Zach Kentish led the recieving core with 75 yards on 5 catchs, while Austin Buerkel had 6 catches for 70 yards. Gage Smith was 22-33 for 267 yards passing with 2 TD and 1 rushing. The team travels to Kearsley next week for what should be an exciting game, as Friday night Kearsley scored  61 points in their loss to Creek. So come on out to Kearsley next Friday night to watch our Eagle Defense take on the Kearsley high powered offense! 
The football team got a win Friday night after a sluggish start. Leading the on the evening was the defense, holding Holly to 135 yards of total offense. The final score was 21-7, with Holly's lone touchdown being the first points on the night immediately after a turnover. However, with :35 seconds to go in the half, Noah Sargent hooked up with Zack Kentish for a 54 yard touchdown to ignite the team. Coming out after halftime the team played much more crisp offensively, while defensively keeping Holly out of the end zone. The team hosts Clio next Friday night for their first home game of the year. Come out and cheer on your EAGLES!!!

Ryan Named Bone Crusher of the Week

Channel 5 has named Patrick Ryan as the WNEM Bone Daddy's BBQ Bone Crusher Player of the week. Patrick's hit came early in the 4th quarter preventing the Fenton running back from the end zone on a 2 point conversion which would have tied the game. Patrick followed later in the quarter with a pass break up that prevented the go ahead score. Click here to watch the game footage! Great job Patrick!!

Coach Denny Hopkins recorded his 100th varsity football win with a 17-15 win in the season opener against Metro League opponent Fenton.  The Eagles started off a bit slow allowing a long TD pass on the second play of the game to go down 0-7, but rallied with a sustained drive that was capped by Shaye Brown's TD run with the PAT by Cameron Cook.  Cook scored again on a 27 yard field goal to put the Eagles up 10-9 at the half.  Brown connected with Mitch Juhl on a 73 yard pass play for a TD early in the third quarter to put the Eagles on top 17-9.  Despite several visits to the red zone, Linden failed to put up any more points on the scoreboard and leaned on their stout defense to hang on for the win.  Senior Patrick Ryan came up big with a great hit to break up a pass play on 3rd down from the 27 forcing a failed Tiger field goal attempt that fell short and sealed the Eagle victory.  Shaye Brown went 23/38 with 344 yards in the air and 69 yards on the ground.  Travis Hull had 9 receptions for 118 yards on offense and 2 interceptions on defense.  Taylor Anderson had 4 receptions for 66 yards.
