The Pleasanton Eagle football teams during the month of October blazed through the month with a great number of victories to hold to their name.
On the week of the September 17th, the Eagles played against the Devine teams with the Varsity team winning 32 to 12, JV winning 36 to 0, and the freshman lost with a score of 0 to 32.
The following week of September 24th, the Eagles played against the Pearsall teams with Varsity winning 52 to 0 and JV winning 35 to 0
For our Homecoming week, the Varsity team played and won an exciting game against Kingsville, with a final score 49 to 16. The game was very exciting, with our students showing great support for the team, inspiring great school pride on one of the most memorable games of the year. The JV team played Pearsall as well, winning 35 to 0, and the freshman played Hondo winning 27 to 0.
Following the heavy homecoming week came the games against seat grabbing games against Boerne. The Varsity team had an extremely close game, losing 39 to 31, having to go into overtime. The team played a strong initial game, only being tied until the very final seconds of the fourth quarter, leading into overtime where Boerne successfully scored, and the Eagles barely falling short. The Boerne game had the best student section the school has seen all year, with everyone being very high spirited and enthusiastic towards such an intense game. Earlier that week the JV played against Beorne as well, winning 18 to 14, and the freshman winning 48 to 20.
With this most recent week, the Eagles played against Uvalde on their homecoming, showing no mercy and beating them across all three teams. The Varsity won by a landslide 58 to 8, the JV 18 to 14, and the freshman 28 to 16.
The month of October was very high spirited and filled with great victories, and our Uvalde score qualified the Varsity team for the playoffs beginning after the game against La Vernia. We wish the Eagle Football team luck in their future games and the playoffs.
