Victory words C-P turns over a new leaf

By CINDY ROLLER, News-Telegram Sports

Oct. 4, 2008 - Win one.

Those words have a new meaning at Como-Pickton. The victory over Grand Saline was the first district win in at least three years. For some of the Eagle players, it was the first time ever to win a district game.

"All wins are really special. You work all week, all year. To get any win is good," Como-Pickton head coach Paul Tullis explained. For some of the Eagles, it was their justification to their homecoming loss last week. "Often you get to play your opponent on their homecoming. Many of the kids (Eagles) commented on spoiling their homecoming, but in the end it is all about getting the win."

The Eagles may have given the Indians their second touchdown of their season, but the final score read 8-7, in Eagles favor. "The defense really played good, but it was our worse offensive game. Defensively, they stepped up and finished," Tullis continued.

As for the coach's victory words for the Eagles, "go and celebrate this weekend. Then get ready to go for Winnsboro."

In football, a win is a win.
