In the end, it all worked out. For those of you who weren’t at the game this past Friday, you probably
heard or saw the score and thought, “Wow, that was a close game…two points difference.” If that was
you, you missed a very interesting night of football, a night that will be remembered by Panther players
and fans for some time.
From miscues that Cass capitalized on, to trick plays to big runs to TD reversing flags, Friday night’s
Sectional Championship took the nerves of the Eastbrook players and fans and stretched them. And
stretched them. The realization of a possible season-ending game, the memory of last year’s heartbreak
at home, the fact that what everyone was experiencing was not Eastbrook’s best, gave all of us a feeling
of uncertainty. But the first down with two and a half minutes remaining allowed everyone to feel the
sense of relief and celebration at the Eastbrook Panthers, again, won the Sectional Championship, for
the third straight year!
Whew. That game is now in the past. NOW we make the trek back down to Lapel for a Regional battle.
I heard it might be cold so bring your gloves, your coffee or hot chocolate, your loud voices, and your
cowbells as the 2018 Panthers look to add a little more recognition to the trophy case.
