Eagles bring the heat and burn the Titans

Football 9/14
Nathaniel Werth, named Overall Player of the Game, becomes the lead blocker for Dallas Schneider, named Offensive Player of the Game, so that Schneider can run the ball for a 70 yard kick return and get the touchdown for the Eagles on September 14.

The Trego Eagles dominated Homecoming and defeated Tri-Plains-Brewster, even ending the game early with a win of 64-14.

The Eagles were all business from the very first kick-off and scored early with a pass from Kobi Shubert to Dillon Dunn.  While the Titans matched the touchdown, they could not keep Dallas Schneider from scoring another touchdown with a 70-yard kick return.

The second quarter was equally impressive for the Eagles who had touchdowns by Schneider with a 17-yard run and Cooper Desormiers who caught a 25-yard pass from Shubert.  In the final seconds of the half, Shubert scored his second touchdown of the game with a two-yard run. 

The Eagles left the field for halftime with a comfortable lead of 46-14.  Upon returning to the field, the Eagle defense refused to let the Titans score.  However, the offense ran over the Titans and scored three touchdowns: one by Schneider with a nine-yard run, one by Tanner Sells with an eight-yard run, and the final by Shubert with a two-yard run.  This closed an outstanding performance by the Eagles with a 64-14 win over the Titans.

Nathaniel Werth was named Overall Player of the Game for having “a great game on both sides of the ball.” Hunter Price was named Defensive Player of the Game two interceptions, three solo tackles, eleven assisted tackles, and one forced fumble. Dallas Schneider earned Offensive Player of the Game for 170 rushing yards and three touchdowns.

Schneider weighed in on the win.

We played really hard…we did what we were supposed to do.”  Schneider also stressed that the team has been working hard every day “trying to get better every chance we can.”

The team faces Atwood next Friday. To have success, “We are going to have to play hard and smart, and execute on plays,” noted Schneider.
