Football

In Football, the Eagles travelled to Winnipeg to play the Miles MacDonnell Buckeyes on Thursday Sept 23. The team showed improved will to compete resulting in a couple of big plays that unfortunately did not and up showing up on the scoreboard. Mac scored on its opening possession  and then recovered a fumble on the ensuing kickoff, scoring a field goal soon after. They added another TD before the end of the first quarter to lead 17-0. The Eagles defence then stiffened as Caine Benham managed to sack  the Buckeye QB and create a fumble the Eagles recovered. The offence was unable to sustain a drive. Held Mac to a single point in the 2nd – 18-0 at the half.

Second half saw Mac add a TD in each quarter but the game was more even as Dryden finally managed to move the ball through the air after struggling on the ground all day. Highlights from the half were an Andrew Langlais interception, Ryan Martel completing 7 of 11 passes for 73 yards and Ben Arsenault scoring a rouge on a missed field goal to provide the first points of the season. Ryan Hansson led the team in receiving with 2 catches for 29 yards and also rushing with 3 carries for 17 yards. Mike Lampshire caused 2 fumbles from his linebacker position on defence.

The coaching staff was pleased with an improved willingness to battle from most of the team. The team is beginning to respond to a higher, more physical tempo in practices. They still aren’t aware of their potential and, as such, don’t consistently demonstrate full speed, aggressive play. Our next 2 opponents have also struggled this year and the hope is that we’ll achieve some success that will translate into confidence in their abilities and a win.
