The Eagles Football team finished the regular season at home Friday with a 25-8 win over the Oak Park 2 Raiders.
After an emotional presentation to the Paquin family in memory of former Eagles footballer Pierre Paquin, and a presentation by retiring players to their parents, the Eagles got to work on the field against the Raiders.
Derrick Tattrie, Mitchell Boudreau and Michael Lampshire all brought home touchdowns for the Eagles.
Adam Swientek made one conversion while Nick Nault added the two point conversion.
The Defensive teams forced two safeties.
“We were able to build an early lead, which allowed us to put in some younger players. The young guys rose to the challenge, with Russ Balla getting two sacks in the game” said coach Zilkalkns. “Our special teams also performed well in recovering fumbles and blocking kicks.”
Moving into the playoffs, Zilkalns says that “there’s always room for improvement, especially on offense. There are no easy ones from here on in.”
The Eagles travel to Winnipeg next Friday to begin their playoff run against Murdoch McKay. Game time is 3:00.
Good luck Eagles!
