The Rhea Middle School Eagles end their winning streak with a 22-12 loss to the Cleveland Raiders at home Thursday night. Junior varsity also takes a hit with a 46-20 loss. Eagles season record now goes to a still impressive 4-1.
Stoney Colbaugh returned a Cleveland kick an amazing 70 yards for a touchdown in the 2nd quarter followed by a great fake out screen pass from quarterback Eli Griffin to Gage Harrison for the Eagles other touchdown in the 3rd quarter.
Gage Harrison led the stats with 6 key offense plays and 4 major tackles on defense. Gavin Roddy was next with 5 & 4 followed by Stoney Colbaugh with 6 & 2.
This week’s top defenders were Zach Allen & Christian Eldridge with a combined 11 major tackles. Other defenders with multiple tackles were Caleb Burress, Seth York, Justin Woody, Will Travis and Jacob Hall who had our favorite tackle of the game after a rundown of a much larger Cleveland player.
