The end was all but in doubt after the first quarter. The Edwardsburg Eddies had four possessions in the first quarter and made each one count. Dillon Hursh would run in a score from 4 yards away, Drew Bidwell then scored from 3 yards out, Cayden Calhoun beat the defense for a 63-yard touchdown run, and Bidwell tacked on another 32 yard TD run. By the end of the 1st quarter, it was 32-0.
Sturgis found some sporadic momentum in the first half. The Trojans had a few drives deep into Edwardsburg territory before they were turned away on fourth downs. The Eddies would only score one more time in the half. That was on a Hursh 9yd run.
Most of the second quarter saw the Eddies team go into the second-team offense and defensive squads. The second half had even more subs taking part. Jackson Hoover was one of the running backs who took advantage of the play time for Edwardsburg. Hoover scored twice for the Eddies. The first from 5yds away and the other from 40yds. The Eddies would wind up winning 54-0.
Calhoun led the Eddies ground attack with 2 carries for a touchdown and 73 yards. Hursh contributed 4 carries for 55 yards and 2 scores, Bidwell 3 carries for 47 yards and two scores, and Hoover with 3 carries for 43 yards and two scores.
Brady Webb was 9/14 for 88 yards. When Webb had the time he was very accurate for the Trojans. His favorite target was Xander Cosby who brought in three catches for 20 yards. Jaden Bodi caught 2 passes for 24 yards.
The Eddies racked up 414 yards of offense while the Trojans countered with 209.
Next Friday the Trojan’s (1-2) will face off against Three Rivers Wildcats (0-3). The Eddies (3-0) will travel to Vicksburg to take on the Bulldogs (3-0).
