ELIZABETHTOWN, NC (WWAY) -- Angry birds, they're not. The East Bladen Eagles prefer the dirty bird label. Regardless, East Bladen is this week's WWAY Farm Bureau Insurance at Mayfaire Team of the Week after beating the Whiteville Wolfpack last Friday.

When you run twice as many plays as your opponent, good things tend to happen. In a battle of two teams that are capable of making a deep run in the state playoffs, East Bladen won 28-19 over Whiteville last Friday.
"Two good teams going at it," East Bladen head coach Robby Priest told WWAY. "I guess we had the lucky bounces and the lucky breaks. That's what it came down to."

Senior Larrell Murchison as usual, did everything for the Eagles. Twin brother Farrell did his part as well. Farrell had 214 yards rushing and two touchdowns. "The victory silenced all the critics out there. You know nobody loves East Bladen when we come to play em, but we go in and hit em in the mouth, real quick and easy," Larrell Murchison said.

Farrell Murchison was thrilled to beat arch-rival Whiteville. "Everyone was blocking good," Farrell Murchison said. "We were hyped before the game because of all the doubters who say who couldn't beat Whiteville, so the victory was great."
