Old Dominion clips Eagles, 42-39

January 21, 2012

Old Dominion’s speed and quickness proved to be a factor Friday night as Hebron dropped a heartbreaker, 42-39 at home. It was the second time this season the Eagles were trumped by Old Dominion.

“We just didn’t get into a rhythm,” head coach Tri Nason said. “Nobody was hot. That’s probably what hurt us the most, our lack of flow and rhythm on offense.”

The Eagles had the lead after the first quarter, 14-10 before they went cold on the offensive side, scoring just four points over the next eight minutes.
