The Hebron Christian Eagles (1-6; 0-1) are coming into tonight’s ball game with the Rams of Immanuel (3-5; 0-1) having spent the first seven games of the season struggling on offense.
The Eagles have managed to score only as many as 20 points twice this season, going 1-1 in those games.
This week, they will be facing a three-win team, but the good news for the Eagles is that the Rams have had their struggles scoring touchdowns as well.
Immanuel opened the season with a 41-6 loss to Hatley. That was followed by a 28-14 loss to Central Academy.

There are many teams across this state that have already received the bad news. They have lost key district games, and they will not be playing football beyond the final week of the regular season.
While times might seem tough for some of our area schools, Clay County is fortunate enough to be able to say that all three teams, the Hebron Christian Eagles (1-6; 0-1), the Oak Hill Academy Raiders (2-6; 1-1) and the West Point Green Wave (6-1; 3-0) have not sealed their fate as far as the post-season is concerned.

Thanks to clear skies and a lot of hard work, the fall season for youth sports got off to a great start on Monday night, as over a hundred local youths converged on the Parks and Recreation sportsplex to begin the youth soccer season.
As far as fan support goes, Parks Assistant Director Jarrod McDaniel says it was the best turnout he has seen since he’s been with the department.
“There were a lot of people,” McDaniel said. “As far as crowd participation goes, it was the best I’ve seen.”

The Green Wave of West Point (6-1; 3-0) are currently riding a four-game winning streak, after defeating Oxford in a close 22-20 home match on Friday.
That game improved their district standings to a perfect 3-0, and they will be looking to make that a perfect four this week, as they hit the road to take on Lake Cormorant (5-2; 2-1).
The Gators dropped a district match for the first time last Friday, as they were shut out by New Hope 21-0.
