It was an historic night at the newly renovated TCU School Field all around tonight. A piece of history, the first points scored by a female player, and a 33-6 team win all made the night memorable.
Prior to the game the Eagles helped dedicate School Field with the naming of the new stadium sponsor Teachers Credit Union. Also presented before the game was the original game ball from the first game at School Field played in 1926 between South Bend Central and Michigan City High Schools.
After the pregame festivities, the Eagles wasted no time getting into action. Within the first minute the Eagles scored off of an 86 yard pass from Ira Armstead to Tre Gray. The night was even more historic on the point after attempt. Kicker Amanda Abner, who also plays on the girls soccer team scored the first points for a female student athlete on the football team in school history. Abner would be good for a total of three PAT’s on the night. Later on in the first Armstead ran for 22 yards and on the next play passed to Jaydin Miller who went for 51 yards.
The Eagle defense held strong all throughout the night as well. The defense held the Red Arrows of Lowell, Michigan throughout the first half, only allowing the Red Arrows to score once on a late drive just before the half.
In the second Armstead scored on a 32 yard keeper and later found Gray again for a pass and run of 72 yards just 32 seconds before half time.
The Eagles took that momentum into the second half, stopping Lowell short on each of their possession in the second half.
Adams scored one last time in the fourth going strong after a Lowell turnover with a run in by Armstead.
The Eagles are now .500 on the year with a 1-1 record (0-0 NIC). They will travel to crosstown rival Riley to take on the Wildcats at Jackson Field.
