MCHS Wins Over Taylor
The Eagles football team of Montgomery County High School was at Taylor County last Friday night and picked up the win over the Vikings. It was a tough battle for the Eagles, but they pulled it through in the second half of the game for the win.
Neither team got much going in the first half of the game as they exchanged several punts. In the second quarter of the game the Vikings got on the board first as they pinned the Eagles deep. They came away with a safety to take a 2-0 lead over MCHS.
MCHS wasted no time in the second half of the game to take the lead over the Vikings. The eagles scored on a rushing touchdown with still over 10 minutes on the clock. With the extra point MCHS was on top 7-2. Later in the third quarter the Eagles added to that lead as they went ahead 14-2 over Taylor.
Early in the fourth quarter Taylor added a touchdown to close the lead to 14-8, but that was all they could do against the Eagle defense. MCHS took the win by that score.
Cameron Wallace led the Eagles with 107 yards rushing along with both of the team’s touchdowns. Tristan Bell added 33 yards passing.
This week the Eagle will make the trip over to Alamo to face off with rival Wheeler County. The game will kickoff at 7:30 p.m.
