The Golden Eagles survived a gutty performance by an injury laden Blue Raiders team to bring home a 35-28 victory in Week 7, their third district win.

“I’m really proud of the way our kids gutted it out, especially that drive at the end to keep it away from them,” said Eagles’ head ball coach Mark Pemberton after the game.

Eagles’ running back Christian Simon scored the go ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter with 7:31 remaining.  An interception by Chris Sturgeon ended Cleveland’s hopes for an upset on their final drive with 3:58 to go.

“We’ll take the win, but we’ve got some things we’ve got to get remedied in a hurry.  That’s not playoff football that we played tonight,” admitted Pemberton.

District play continues for the Eagles this Friday at Soddy Daisy High School with a 7:30 PM kickoff.
