Eagles Vs. Tigers

Chris Colella

Howland traveled to Hubbard to take on the undefeated, 3-0 Eagles. After suffering an ankle and thumb injury, running back LJ Scott would be making his return. Hubbard was looking to improve to 4-0 on the season.

In the early stages of the game, things were’t looking too bright for the Eagles. After a few costly mistakes, Howland was quickly up 14-0 midway through the first quarter. Once Howland went up 14-0 in the first, they didn’t score again. Hubbard’s defense began to lock down and hold strong. The Eagles fought their way back into the game scoring two touchdowns to tie it up at 14. Senior Darnell Tate then scored on a 24 yard rushing touchdown in the 3rd quarter to give Hubbard their first lead of the game. A missed extra point would make it a six point game with a 20-14 score. Combined, the Eagles had three rushing touchdowns. Tyler Taafe sealed the victory with a late safety to make it a two possession game to go up to 22-14. Keep an eye on the Eagles as they take on the undefeated, 4-0, Struthers Wildcats next week!
