Eagles win big over Calvary

After suffering a shut-out to Sharky-Issaquena Sept. 6, Hebron passed along the favor to Calvary Christan in Meridian, dealing the Cougars a 46-0 loss on the road Sept. 14.
The win evened the Eagles’ record to 2-2 on the season and gave the team a shot of confidence.
“We were worried about their quarterback,” said Coach David Foster. “He’s an elusive runner and has good speed.”
Foster’s worries didn’t come into play as the Eagles held the Cougars QB to less than 50 yards rushing while racking up 376 ground yards of their own.
“Our kids really stepped up and coralled him,” Foster said. “It was an overall good effort. They’ve got some big guys on their team but we stepped up and played well.”
Hebron posted two scores in the first quarter with Justin Gordon taking the ball in from 27- and 16-yards out. Channing Tapley ran in a conversion to put the Eagles up 16-0.
In the second quarter, Landon Hill came in from 14-yards out for a TD with Tapely hitting Hayden Carty for the conversion and a 22-0 Hebron lead at the half.
Collin Moore broke the plane on a 15-yard run in the third and Trey Chism ran in from 12-yards out. Moore got the conversion run and the Eagles led 38-0 going into the fourth.
Gordon came across the goal line once more in the fourth, this time from four-yards out and Tapely got the conversion run for the 46-0 win.
Foster had opportunities to work several younger and newer players into the mix with good results.
“A lot of kids got in and we didn’t have any let down,” Foster said. “No drop in quality. We planned to run the football and we did.”
The Eagles are off this week and will head to Marks to take on Delta Academy Sept. 27.web heb foot
