The Eagles defense held tough all afternoon on the potent Suns offense.
John James Yancy quickly added another score making the score 14 to 6 at halftime.
The third quarter brought an onslaught from University after Ben Peters added another run and score.
With the Eagles backed up to their own end zone on 4th down, the Eagles wisely gave up the safety so that they could kick off to the Suns instead of giving up the ball close to their own end zone. The Suns turned the ball over on downs.
With a left screen to John James Yancy, the young runner bobbed and weaved his way to another touchdown making the score 20-14.
With the Suns driving toward a possible tie, Hunter Guy intercepted a deep pass and ran it back for the final score 28-14.
Congratulations Team! Its been an amazing ride, and we are looking forward to the future.
