Castle Hills 40
Town East 38

LA VERNIA -- The Town East Eagles football team took on another district rival this past Friday, as Castle Hills made the drive out to La Vernia. Town East came out focused on the job at hand and it looked like the Eagles were going to put this game away early, but the Castle Hills Eagles had other ideas. Castle Hills got its first win ever against Town East in football by a score of 40-38.

Castle Hills took the opening kickoff, drove down the field, and was able to put it in the end zone to go up 7-0. It then took Town East one play to put it in the end zone with Dante Johnson taking a pick and getting outside for a 42-yard touchdown. The point-after attempt was no good to make the score 7-6.

On the next possession for Castle Hills, it looked as though they were going to score again, but Johnson forced a fumble and Matthew Smith was able to fall on it at the Town East 10-yard line to stop the drive. Town East then scored with Tyler Smith throwing a 14-yard strike to his brother Matthew Smith for a touchdown. The point-after was good, and Town East was up 13-7.

Town East was able to stop Castle Hills on its next possession and Johnson was able to punch it in from 4 yards out to put Town East up 19-7 at the end of the first quarter.

The second began as Castle Hills took its next possession and marched right down the field and put it in, making the score 19-13. Town East wasn’t done scoring, though, as the Eagles moved the ball until Johnson scored from 35 yards out. The point after was no good, and the score was 25-13 with less than three minutes left in the quarter.

Castle Hills took the kickoff and scored quickly to make it 25-20 with a little over a minute remaining until halftime. Town East fumbled the ball back to Castle Hills on the next play, and with seven seconds left in the half, Castle Hills put it in the end zone to take a 27-25 lead.

Town East received the second-half kickoff and again turned the ball over. Castle Hills was able to capitalize and stretched its lead to 34-25. Town East, playing at times with only five players due to injuries, was able to punch it in the end zone again as Johnson took the handoff and galloped 18 yards to bring the Eagles back to within one touchdown at 34-31 to end the third quarter.

The fourth quarter was exciting as both teams traded jabs. Castle Hills was able to punch it in midway through the quarter to seemingly put the game out of reach. But in six-man football, a two-touchdown lead is never safe. Town East was able to score as Johnson put it in from 3 yards out for his fifth rushing touchdown of the game, making the score 40-38 with less than a minute remaining. Town East attempted an onside kick, but the Eagles weren’t able to get it, and Castle Hills ran out the clock.

For the game, Tim Muenzler racked up 16 tackles, Johnson and Caleb Ceasor added 7, Tyler Smith had 6, Matthew Smith had 5, and Arthur Lomas picked up another.

“I am so proud of my boys again,” Head Coach Robert Davis said of his Town East Eagles. “We played with six players, and sometimes 5. That’s a lot to ask.”

With the loss, the Eagles fall to 2-2 on the season. Town East will be back in action this Friday, Oct. 5, as the team travels to New Life. Kickoff is set for 5 p.m.
