EAGLE edit 1

Rebounding from a tough defeat at the hands on an ultra-talented Hayti squad to open the season, East Prairie make the long trek up I-55 to face an improving Grandview squad. Expectations have risen for the Eagle program and were met with a solid 29-14 victory to even the season mark at 1-1.

EP’s response was a Beck INT return for a TD and a 14-13 score following a rare PAT miss; The Eagles would take the lead for good following a Brad Smith interception that set up Beck for his third score of the night and a 19-14 EP lead.

Frankie Nave ended the game’s scoring on the first drive in the second half bolting in from 27-yards out and followed with the PAT for the final 29-14 margin….

JAYS BATTLE IN LOSS TO SIKESTON

It’s often said in sporting circles that the final score is deceptive; never more was that the case in the 126th meeting of the Charleston – Sikeston football rivalry. The scoreboard read 43-14, but as a witness to this contest; as well as the past three years, it was much closer than that.

Fact. It was scoreless at the end of the first quarter. Following a Sikeston TD on 4th and 16 at the 11:47 mark of the second period it was 7-0; Charleston answered on the very next drive with a nine-play drive capped by quarterback Jamaul Gray’s 25 yard TD with 5:56 left in the first half for a 7-6 score.

From there, however, things went downhill fast for the Jays. Sikeston scored on a 32 yard romp with 4:04 left in the second quarter. The Bulldogs got the ball back with just under two minutes left in the first half and hit a 66-yard TD pass at the 1:21 mark for a 19-6 lead and then seized ultimate control with an interception return for a TD as time ran out in the first half for a 29-6 lead….;
