MCHS Eagles Fall In First Round
The Montgomery County High School Eagles football season came to an end on Saturday of last week at Brooks County against the Trojans.
The Trojans took the lead early in the game on a 55-yard touchdown pass. They added the extra point to lead 7-0 over the Eagles.
MCHS answered as Brandon Denmark came up with an interception and returned it 20 yards for a touchdown later in the first quarter. The extra point was good to tie the game at 7-7.
Brooks added one more touchdown in the first quarter as they connected on a 37-yard pass for a score. They missed the PAT but led the game 13-7.
In the second quarter of the game the Trojans extended their lead as they capped off a drive with a 7-yard touchdown run. They again missed the PAT but led 19-7. And that was the score at halftime as MCHS wasn't able to find the end zone.
In the third quarter it was all Trojans as they put two more touchdowns on the board. The first came on a 45- yard pass play, and the second was a 41-yard run. That pushed the lead to 35-7.
In the fourth quarter Brooks scored on a 10-yard run to make it a 42-7 game. MCHS finally added to their total on a rushing touchdown with just under four minutes left in the game. That made the score 42-13.
The Trojans scored one more time as they took a 49-13 win over the Eagles. The loss ends the Eagles season, but it was a good run for the Eagles. MCHS finished the year with an 8-3 record.
