Huskies Spoil Dryden Eagles Homecoming

Posted on Friday, September 14, 2018 16:21 PM

It's been a long time since the defence of the Dryden Eagles High School Football team has been shutdown, but they ran into a impenetrable wall on Friday afternoon at Harry McMaster Field.

The offensive line of Sturgeon Heights gave their quarterback all day to throw and the running-back capitalized on gaping holes as the Huskies ruined Dryden's Homecoming with a 48-6 win.

Despite the set-back the defence never gave up, recording several big hits, and forcing a fumble courtesy of Brody McMurrich.

The secondary also made several key break-up's.

The offence moved the ball well, keeping the game interesting early.

Carter Armstrong hooked up with Bailey Murrell from 47-yards out on a third down gamble to make it a 20-6 game.

Armstrong, Peter Zilkalns and Orren Fex engineered other promising drives but couldn't find the end zone.

Dryden now drops to 0-2 in their first season of 'AAA' Football.

The Eagles return to action next Thursday as they head to Winnipeg to face the St. Paul's Crusaders.
