It’s revenge time for the unbeaten Conwell-Egan Eagles. A year removed from a 49-7 playoff loss to Middletown, the Eagles are getting another crack at the Blue Raiders.
“We’ve been trying to take it one game at a time but we’ve had Middletown on our minds since last year,” head coach Jack Techtmann said. “As soon as our game was over last week we knew that Middletown had won. The kids were really jacked up from the second I said ‘We got Middletown next week.’”
A year removed from the 46-point defeat, Techtmann says there’s a clear cut difference between last years matchup compared to this years. “Some of our best players will play this year,” Techtmann explained. Last year, the Eagles were without Andrew Garwo (suspension), Terome Mitchell III (injury), and Sean Stokes (injury).
“They knew Andrew Garwo, Sean Stokes, and Terome Mitchell III weren’t playing,” Techtmann said. We had them at a third and eight on the first series and they threw a screen right where those guys would have been and popped one open.”
With a fully stacked roster and an unblemished record, the Eagles are as prepared for the rematch as they’ll ever be. “We’ve had this time of year on our minds since last year,” Techtmann said. “This is survival of the fittest now.”
