August 31, East Hickman High suffered an unfortunate defeat at the first home game of the season where the Eagles played against the Scotts Hill Lions. The Eagles came out onto the field strong and got points on the scoreboard first. The Lions quickly recouped those points. Starting the 2nd quarter, the score remained at 6-13, Lions leading. While not being the most eventful quarter, all players worked their hardest.
Entering halftime, the East Hickman Marching Eagles played “An Incredible Show.” They displayed their hard work and dedication as they entertained the crowd with the following pieces: “The Glory Days,” “Life’s Incredible again,” and “Saving Metroville”.
Starting the third quarter with cheerleader chants and audience encouragement, the East Eagles gave it their all; sadly, no touchdowns were made this time around. The final score was 6-20.
