Team of the Week: East Bladen Eagles
ELIZABETHTOWN, NC (WWAY) — You know what they say about defense. It’ll win you the game nine times out of ten.
Thanks to East Bladen’s impressive defense last Friday Midway had less than 100 yards of offense.
“You ain’t nothing without defense,” East Bladen’s Ethan Hines told WWAY. You can score all you want and let the other team score. Defense is key.” Ethan Hines not only scored a defensive touchdown last Friday against Midway, he scored three on the offensive end. East Bladen shutout Midway 42-0.
The Eagles are now 3-2 on the season. In fact they’ll host undefeated Clinton this Friday. And what’s it gonna take to beat one of the best teams in the state? “Execution,” East Bladen senior Kyle Tatum said. “That’s the key.”
Without further ado let’s give it up for the East Bladen Eagles, this week’s WWAY-Farm Bureau Insurance Team of the Week!
