On October 8th, East Hickman Eagles faced their rivals, the Hickman County Bulldogs, in a close and thrilling game with both sides showing their school spirit. The Pep Squad organized a caravan for students and parents to show their school spirit on their way to the game, and they were met with taunting signs from the Bulldogs.
Both sides were on the edge of their seats throughout the game with each team having a close call game; however, the Eagles persevered, with feathers “unruffled,” scoring 43 to 40—the Bulldogs surrendered the rest of the time in the fourth quarter. During the game, Ethan Irwin #22, wearing Parker Nicholson’s jersey, smacked the ball out of the air when Bulldogs kicked the ball for their PAT.
Eagles have since played Scotts Hill, winning that game. The Eagles’ season ended with a play-off game against Summertown. Congratulations to the coaches and football team for such an exciting season!
