It was over from the word “go” on Friday night. The Eddies received the opening kickoff and on their first play from the line of scrimmage, Conner Nelson found Dillon Hursh for a 62yd TD reception. One the kickoff the ball hit the leg of an Allegan player and bounced directly to an Eddie. Edwardsburg would then score a few plays later as Drew Bidwell would score from 4 yards away. Edwardsburg would go on to score three more times in the first quarter. Mac Gaideski would score twice, and Hursh would add another 5yd TD run.
Late in the second quarter, a running clock was put in play as Cayden Calhoun scored his second touchdown in the quarter. The first was from 18 yards away, and the second from just 1 yard. Edwardsburg went into halftime leading Allegan 56-6.
Allegan controlled the ball most of the third quarter. They had possession for almost 10 minutes of the quarter before Logan Abraham ran it in for a 1yd touchdown. Edwardsburg would quickly respond in the fourth quarter with a 5yd touchdown run from Logan McColley. Abraham would score again for the Tigers with 2:50 remaining in the game on a 66yd touchdown sprint to the endzone.
Logan Abraham led the Tigers offense. He rushed 17 times for 129 rushing yards and 2 touchdowns. Quarterback, Jayden Smith, was 4 of 10 passing for 69 yards. Baylee Schafer caught two of his passes for 43 yards. Allegan finished with 214 yards of offense.
The Eddies were led by Mac Gaideski who ran it 8 times for 134 yards and 2 touchdowns. Calhoun rushed 5 times for 47 yards and 2 scores. Edwardsburg had 329 yards rushing on 34 attempts. Good enough for a 9.6 yards per carry average.
