Friday night, the Wall Eagles faced the Rapid City Christian Comets.
The Eagles received the opening kick and had their drive stall out and had to punt. After a lot of back and forth from both teams, the Eagles finally broke lose in the first quarter when Jacob Bielmaier found Bradan McDonnell on a 73-yard pass for a touchdown. The first quarter ended with the Eagles on top 6-0.
In the second quarter, the Eagles scored twice. Tate Eisenbraun struck first with a one-yard touchdown run. The two-point point after touchdown (PAT) was ran in by Trey Elshere. The second touchdown came late in the second quarter when Bielmaier found a new target, Cash Wilson for a 27-yard pass and catch. Tate Eisenbraun made the PAT kick. That would bring the first half to a close, with the Eagles ahead 21-0.
The second half had much of the same in store for the Eagles. In the third quarter, Bielmaier again found McDonnell for a 17-yard strike to bring the score to 27-0. Later in quarter, McDonnell had a six-yard scamper for his third touchdown of the night. Elshere caught a pass from Bielmaier to add two points. That brought the score to 35-0.
The Eagles defense was great all night, as they were able to force five turnovers, which was a large part of their victory. Wilson had two interceptions and the Eagles also forced three fumbles.
The Eagles finished the game strong and came away with a 35 point victory. Next week the Eagles will travel to Hill City to face the Rangers.
