The Eagles played against Dillon last year in the state championship game and lost by one point. This year the Eagles played Dillon again in the state championship and lost by one point. It's Deja vous all over again! The Dillon Wildcats jumped out to a 14-0 lead but the Eagles came roaring back to close the gap to 14-8 on a touchdown and 2 point conversion. In the 2nd half the Wildcats scored on a long run making it 21-8. From then on Central's Defense stopped the Wildcats for the rest of the game. The Eagles scored on a pass making it 21-14. They missed the 2 point try. Then in the 4th the Eagles mounted a furious drive culmunating in another score making it 21-20. Now what to do. Do we go for the tie and kick a 1 point extra point and hope to win in overtime? Do we go for the win and try for the 2 point conversion. We go for the win and the Wildcats stop us! Dillon wins 21-20. A lot of people were second guessing the coaches and some of them put blame on the coaches for not going for the tie and forcing OT but if I had been coaching I would have gone for the win too.

I'm an eagle myself, and let me tell you something it was hard to except the fact that we lost. But me be happy and all still came back to my eagle team with a smile and encouraging them to do better next year.

I think this game could have been won if Eagles had kicked a couple of times. Between lost conversions and field goal opportunities, the points could have been there!
