The Eagles were decimated by injuries this week. Only 11 rostered players were available for the match-up against the Vikings. Five Peewees and one Smurf player helped to fill the gaps. 

The number of possessions in this game were fairly equal. It came down to defense, and the Eagles brought their A game. Ten players combined for 27 tackles on the day. Caleb Einzig, who played double duty all day, led the team in tackles, followed by Chase Eberly, Jamar McKinney and Aaron Nordai. Two Peewee players stepped up on defense to take down the Vikings: Gabrial Graham and Darrius Jalloh.

Offensively, Steven Ramsey, the bruising back, took full advantage of his size and pulled defenders down the field with him. With just moments to go in the first half, Ramsey was able to run up the gut for an Eagles touchdown. Following the missed extra point attempt, the Eagles led 6-0. 

The Vikings fumbled on the last play of the half and the Eagles got the ball to start the second half.

The Eagles marched down the field with Einzig and Jaydn Maple sharing quarterback duties. After a few long runs by McKinney, Nordai, and Ramsey, the Eagles were on the 5 yard line. Following a penalty and a bad snap, the Eagles were pushed back to the 15. 

Einzig and Ramsey pushed their way through until the Eagles were on the 2 yard line. McKinney ran up the middle to make it 12-0. Ramsey ran in the extra point and the Eagles were on top 13-0. 

With less than two minutes to go, Maple intercepted a Viking pass to secure the Eagle win. 

Heading to West Perry this week, the Eagles are 3-4.

The Eagles have been leaning on their defense all season, and this week was no different. 

Donte Howard, Demaj Jalloh, Darrius Jalloh, Gabrial Graham, Adrian Serrano, Shakur Jalloh, and Garin Geesaman led the way in smothering the Vikings offense. Javon Mosley scored the Eagles first touchdown. Geesaman added the extra point for a 7-0 lead. 

The Eagles began to find running room in the middle of the defense. Demaj Jalloh put the Eagles on the board again with a touchdown run, and the extra point put the Eagles ahead 14-0. 

The Eagles turned back every Vikings threat to improve to 2-5.

Three plays into the first half, the Vikings reached the end zone, but the Eagles would not be shaken. 

The next possession for each team ended in turnovers on downs. But long runs by Benjamin Davis and Benjamin Nordai led to Andrew McCorkel being the first Eagle to reach the end zone to end the first half.

In the second half, the Eagles had two more possessions. With runs by Kaleb Anthony, Davis, McCorkel, Nordai, and Jace Redline, Braydon Nye was able to reach the end zone. 

With the help of Marquel Beasley, Luke Heckman, Kellan Livingston, and Greyson Pesilis, the Eagles were able to slow down the Vikings.
