Eagles look to pressure McDonald

Eastside quarterback Austin Holloway dropped back and delivered a pass to avoid taking what would've been a sack in practice on Wednesday.

3 and out

Midway through the season, Eastside football sits at a comfortable 2-2. One fumble in overtime might have propelled them to 3-1, but that's something we'll never know. What we do know is, the Eagles have five games left, all against region opponents with a combined record of 12-7.

Lady Eagles toppled by Walnut Grove

Thursday's matchup against Walnut Grove (19-2, 10-0 Region 4-AAAA) had huge implications for Eastside (15-4-1, 7-3 Region 4-AAAA). A win would have put them in sole possession of third place in the region behind Walnut Grove and Eagle's Landing.

Pink out turns to blowout

Eastside to face No. 3 ranked Griffin

This isn't David vs. Goliath. Eastside (2-0 Region 4-AAAA) is too good of a team to be David, but Griffin (2-0 Region 4-AAAA), ranked No. 3 in the state by maxpreps.com, is definitely goliath-level football. A better comparison would probably be Rocky Balboa vs. Apollo Creed - the first time - with Eastside being Rocky and Griffin, the undisputed champion, being Apollo.
