Eagle Teams Take on Crimson Tide
By Stephanie Upchurch
The Nashville Eagles took to the field again this week against the Rutherford County Crimson Tide this past Saturday. The boys in blue and orange showed up pumped up and ready for some football!
Our 9 & 10 year old BB team took to the field in Smyrna this weekend. After a heartbreaking blowout in their first outing against this Crimson Tide team, this team looked like a whole new crew.
The defense was stout in this game on both sides of the field. We did see some BIG time defensive plays by Carson Upchurch, Roman Hughey and Justin Stewart to name a few.
Ultimately the offense’s struggle to get any rhythm going was the difference in the game. The Eagles O-line struggled against the Crimson Tide’s defensive line leaving QB Justin Stewart scrambling to make plays with his feet.
Tink Reed and QB Justin Stewart were able to break off some nice runs but in the end a long run by the Crimson Tide was able to break off one long run which proved to be the difference in the game.
Our BBB team went back to Lavergne this weekend and dominated the Crimson Tide in a lopsided victory.
This explosive offense runs like clockwork with QB Joshua Reece and running back Jaylen Springs in the backfield. You can always count on this team for an action filled Saturday football game and this weekend was no different.
The boys in blue put up 42 points in this victory making the Eagle nation proud!
Our AAA team was also in action against the NCS Wildcats. Unfortunately the Wildcats had their number and the Eagles fell 12-0.
