Engadine Tops Cedarville 52- 42 in Battle of Unbeaten Teams

Engadine was the site for a week-seven showdown Friday, October 7, between two previously undefeated teams when the Cedarville Trojans visited the Eagles. The game lived up to expectations, as both teams took turns leading before the Eagles (7-0) edged the Trojans 52-42 (6-1) thanks to a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns.

The first quarter of the game saw both teams launch offensive attacks with a combined 44 points going on the board. Cedarville pulled out to a 14-0 lead early on the strength of rushing touchdowns by Kamen Labinski and Trey Norris, but Scout Bigger and Trevor Brawley rushed in for Engadine to make the score 28- 16 by the end of the quarter. Two more touchdowns by Brawley allowed the Eagles to fly high into halftime with a 32-28 lead.

Possession of the lead changed three times in the third quarter as a rushing touchdown by Norris gave Cedarville back the lead before another by Brawley returned it to Engadine. Another touchdown for Norris gave the Trojans the edge, but touchdowns by Brawley and Scout Bigger in the fourth gave Engadine its final 10-point advantage.

“We played a really good game,” Cedarville coach Scott Barr said. “We won in a lot of aspects, but not on the scoreboard.”

Eagles quarterback Trevor Brawley led the Eagles attack Friday throwing for 80 yards and running for more than 140. He shook loose defenders while running the ball on a couple of vital third- and fourth-down plays during the game.

The Trojans combined for 600 yards of offense, including the 316 yards they gained on the ground. Mr. Barr said his team was held back by a vital fumble that Engadine recovered in the second quarter, bringing a big momentum swing with it, and a holding call in the fourth quarter that resulted in a touchdown being called back. Cedarville had some injury problems, too, as muscle issues kept Gunner Fountain from playing before the team lost Jordan Bailey to a third-quarter knee injury.
