JV Football Team Dominant in Win


The Arlington Eagles faced off against the Marysville Getchell Chargers at John C. Larson stadium on September 28th for an exciting JV match up.  The game was in the Eagles favor from the start, as both offense and defense combined to shut down the young Chargers team.

Immediately during the Chargers first possession, Eagles cornerback Tanner Edmondson (’18) intercepted the ball on third down and set the tone for the Eagles defense for the remainder of the game.  The defense came together throughout the game to force fourth down after fourth down, never allowing the Chargers’ offense room to breathe.

On the opposite side of the ball, Campbell Hudson (’18) proved to be an extremely capable quarterback, who consistently moved the chains and advanced towards the end zone.  With only two minutes left in the first quarter, Hudson threw a dime for the first touchdown of the game.

The Eagles offense continued to push the ball, with Hudson repeatedly combining with wide receivers Christian Waldal (’18) and Cam Sjolund (’18).  The passing threat of the Eagles combined with several deep runs by Cooper Cummings (’18), and a touchdown run from Jake Rogers (’18) devastated the Chargers, leaving the score 21-0 at halftime.

The offense proved to be even deadlier in the second half, with Hudson throwing his third touchdown of the game, eventually leading to a score of 34-0 in the middle of the fourth quarter.  Marysville Getchell’s offense started off slow, beginning the quarter with a punt to Riley Smith (’18) who returned the ball for 35+ yards, nearly resulting in a touchdown.

During the last minute of the game, a spark of offense showed up as the Chargers put their mark on the board, making the score 34-7 after a successful touchdown pass. The game resulted in a 34-7 blowout, showing just what the Eagles were capable of.

Next week, the Eagles will square-up against Oak Harbor, and will need to give it their all to come out on top.  The keys to another Eagles victory will be to remain aggressive.  The passing game, combined with the lock-down defense of the secondary, should be enough to shut down the Wildcats, as long as the passion and will to win shines through once again.
