South Bay Game of the Week: Eastlake Titans 42, Olympian Eagles 7
The Week 8 South Bay Game of the Week features Eastlake hosting Olympian. The question coming into tonight’s game is this: Can the Titans put an end to the Eagles five-game winning streak? By the game’s end the answer is a resounding ‘Yes’ as the Titans win handily by a score of 42-7. At the end of the first quarter Olympian quarterback Garry Canon muscles his way into the end zone to get the Eagles on the board. Start of the second quarter, Eastlake’s Traylon Reed with the one-yard scamper into the end zone…we’re tied at 7. Then minutes later Titan quarterback Isaack Morales throws a touchdown pass to Micah Wiggs to put Eastlake ahead. With just a minute to go in the half Eastlake pulls off the reverse hand-off to Chris Olave who then airs it out Milton Earls to make it 21-7 Titans. Third quarter and Eastlake boosts its lead to 28-8 with run by Jacks Crawford. At the end of the third quarter the Titan lead widens further with a diving touchdown by Traylon Reed….his second of the game. By the time the final whistle blows the final score tells the story as in Eastlake 42, Olympian 7. After the game Eastlake players tell the PPR there was no way they were going to let Olympian win a sixth game in a row inside the Titans’ house! Thanks so much for watching and see you next week!
