Eagles shut out Central

The Hebron Eagles are solidly in the run for a playoff position with a big 50-0 shutout over the Central Academy Vikings Oct. 18, but coach David Foster knows better than to rest on their laurels.
“Nothing is set in stone,” Foster said. “We’ve still got to go out there and play football. You got to go play the games.”
The Eagles are 3-0 in district play with one more to go, but variables are still figuring in. The Eagles’ game with Calhoun Academy will settle their division records on Nov. 1 but Kemper Academy has two more division games on their schedule, facing Strider and Central Academy.
Foster isn’t making any predictions until the final results are in and is focusing on one game at a time.
In Friday’s game, the focus was all on Hebron as they dominated the field from the beginning.
In the first quarter, Justin Gordon ran back the opening kickoff for a 95-yard touchdown and Channing Tapley passed to Hayden Carty for a 15-yard TD.
The Eagles carried their forward motion into the second quarter as Drew Myatt had a 36-yard reception for TD and Landon Hill ran in the conversion. Tapley hit Carty for a 43-yard TD and then took the conversion across and finished up with an eight-yard rushing TD. Collin Moore ran in the conversion for a 36-0 Hebron lead at the half.
Foster called off the dogs as best he could in the second half with only two more scores recorded. Andrew Myatt ran one in from three-yards out in the third and Taylor Simmons had a 23-yard TD in the fourth with Myatt getting the conversion run.
“We got a lot of kids in,” Foster said. “We played everyone we could.”
The Eagles will host an unknown foe in Friendship Academy Friday. This is the first year of football for the academy who is not playing in a division but picking up open dates.
“We’ll get through this week and then get ready for Calhoun,” Foster said. “Calhoun and Hebron is always a good game.”web hebron
