Eagles drop regular season finale 62-32 to Wausa…..

 

Wausa came to play and the Eagles appeared sluggish all night, leading to a Viking win in Allen Friday, 62-32.

 

The Vikings made big plays with regularity, while the Eagle offense sputtered and the defense played a step slow.

 

Wausa, hung up 24 first period points and followed up with 20 in the second to race to a 44-20 halftime lead. Compounding the lead was two more quick scores to open the third period. Ghatlin Hegge did most of the damage with his arm and feet to the Eagles. Hegge score four touchdowns on runs of 48, 5, 19 and 6, while throwing two touchdown passes of 9 and 18.

 

The Eagles tried to stay close and hold the Vikings. The Eagle tallied 14 first period points and 6 in the second period. The game was 36-20 with 2:00 minutes left in the half, and the Eagles driving in Viking territory when the game’s momentum swung for good, as an mishandled snap on a second down play turned into a “scoop and score” touchdown for Wausa, ending the Eagles chances to close the gap and took the wind from the Eagle sails.

 

The game was never close after that. Leading the Eagles offensively was Kyle Smith, who carried 30 times for 176 yards and two touchdowns. Blake McCorkindale toted the pigskin 14 times for 55 yards and two scores. Devin Twohig caught a Smith pass from 43 yards. Twohig had 66 yards of receiving on six catches.

 

Defensively, Jacob Williams led the tacklers with 12 and a fumble recovery. Isaac Verzani and Blake McCorkindale each added 9.

 

The loss hurt the Eagles seeding in the playoffs starting next Thursday, but only changed the site where they will play, since the Eagles win or lose were going to be on the road. The opponent appears UNOFFICALLY to be Friend.

 

COACHES COMMENTS:

“We played slow, and with no aggressiveness. They came to play and played very hard. It was tough to see the kids out of position, miss assignments, and look confused. We will regroup and play as well as we possibly can Thursday against whoever we draw in the playoffs.”
