ORE CITY - Could the polls be right? Well, unfortunately for the Como-Pickton Eagles, Ore City gave proof with a 47-13 final Friday night at Rebel Field.
The Eagles went into this game a 20-point underdog and came out 34 points shy of a victory.
It was not until the second quarter that the Eagles were able to light up the scoreboard. On a first and goal, Eagle sophomore Tanner Brumley made a sliding play across the goal line spurring the visiting fans' cheers. Teammate Angel Mercado was close on the two-point conversion but it just missed. Nevertheless, the spirits fell after witnessing Rebel Cory Maxwell cross into the end zone in the first quarter as well as teammate Shaun Nicholson's point after marked good. The Rebels were able to push their way through more easily with the C-P penalties called.
