The Eagles tasted victory for the first time this season last Friday night at Wade Hampton. Eastside will take on Blue Ridge this week.

Eagles hold off Generals

Eastside held off a late rally to put away its first win of the season against Wade Hampton Friday night.

Plenty went right early for the Eagles during the 23-20 victory, and it would be enough to sustain a vicious second half comeback from the 0-4 Generals.

Turnquist leads Eagles to victory

Eastside quarterback Drake Turnquist has been waiting for his offense to put together a complete game, and it finally did last Friday at Wade Hampton.

The Eagles notched a 23-20 victory over the Generals, earning the teams first win of the season.  

Turnquist ran for a touchdown and threw for another during the win.

Tigers blanked on road

Blue Ridge did not cross the goal line during a road trip to Toccoa, Georgia Friday, falling to Stephens County 28-0.

The Tigers are now 2-1 heading into region play.

“We’ve played three [Class] AAAA teams, which was some tough competition,” head coach Shane Clark said. “We hope that will help us out in region play.”

Riverside came up short last Friday night against Woodmont, falling 21-14.

Riverside falls in final minutes

A late go-ahead score buried Riverside Friday during a 21-14 loss to Woodmont.

The game, which was delayed for nearly an hour due to inclement weather, gave the Warriors their second loss of the season.

“We had our chances going back and forth,” Smith said. “We just ran out of time. I felt like we gave the game away.”

Brad Keselowski, driver of the No. 2 Miller Lite Ford, celebrates with a burnout after winning the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series 400 at Chicagoland Speedway on Sept. 14 in Joliet, Illinois.

Late-race move sets up win

Staff Reports's picture

For Brad Keselowski, this year’s chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup started the same way it did in 2012—with a victory at Chicagoland Speedway.

Clearly, Keselowski would love to see the chase end the same way it did two years ago—with a series championship.
