The Conecuh Springs Christian School (CSCS) Eagles had a tough road test Friday night as they visited the defending State Champions of Victory Christian.
The game started off rocky for the Eagles as they fell behind 17-0 within the first 2 minutes. Once the jitters subsided, the Eagles were able to chip away at the lead until the 4th quarter when they were able to pull ahead and win the game by the score of 74-57.
For the first time this season, CSCS was able to mount a balanced offensive attack to keep the defense guessing. Lott Putnam was very efficient through the air, connecting on 8 of 10 passes for 166 yards and 6 touchdowns.
Leading the receiving core for the Eagles was Joseph Munoz, hauling in 4 receptions for 110 yards and 3 touchdowns. Also A.J. Taylor came up big in key situations, catching 3 passes for 52 yards and 3 touchdowns.
Once again leading the rushing attack for the Eagles was Cesar Bravo-Mota, carrying the ball 21 times for 197 yards and 3 touchdowns. Joseph Munoz also had a big night on the ground, rushing for 132 yards on just 11 carries. Richard Santay also contributed to the running game with a 4 yard touchdown rush.
The defense for the Eagles had a tough night allowing 57 points but came up with several key stops in the 4th quarter to seal the win. Leading the defense was Tristan Moseley with 9 solo tackles and 1 assist.
Efraim Vaquero also was key for the defense with 8 solo tackles and 3 sacks. Kevin Padilla chipped in with 6 tackles and 1 assist. The real boost for the defense that changed momentum in the game came when Miguel Gudino intercepted a pass and returned it 33 yards for a touchdown.
Overall it was an emotional roller coaster game for the Eagles and it took a real team effort to come out with a huge win on the road.
Next up is another very tough road trip to Ashland as the Eagles travel to take on Clay County Christian. Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m. and all eagle fans are encouraged to attend.
