The Eagles relied on a relentless defense in the win over the Longhorns. Pressure was applied all night with big efforts from Zach Dunlap, Bryce Wilhelm, Rick Cobo, Nathan Wright, and Caleb Rolen from their defensive line positions. Nate Barnes and Michael Seman made several tackles and prevented numerous big plays from their linebacker positions. Ethan Hawk and Milton Ayala provided stellar play from the secondary, highlighted by Ayala's interception in the 4th quarter to stop a Longhorn drive.
On the offensive side of the ball, Noah Kimball threw two touchdowns. A 32 yard strike to Bailey Byland on the Eagles opening possession. He added another touchdown pass of 34 yards to Jaden Blake right before half. Luke Pstroki added a 32 yard field goal in between the touchdowns as well as both extra points to cap the scoring. Kaden Ebron and Michael Ratcliff each had several big runs to lead the Eagles ground attack. The Eagles were unable to find the end zone in the 2nd half. The Longhorns returned the 2nd half kickoff for a touchdown as their only score and the only points of the 2nd half.
The JV2 Eagles return to action next Thursday October 15th at 5:30pm vs Midlothian at Lowery Freshman Center.
