After an equal win-loss year of play, the Eagles have started their playoff run on a high note, defeating the Smyrna Bulldogs 14-13 last Friday.

The Eagles came out firing on their first drive, which ended with a six-yard  Nathan Cisco to Kendrell Scurry connection for a touchdown.

Smyrna tied the game up on their second drive, with a a 43-yard Alex Bannister pass to Trae Brimm.

The rest of the game was a defensive shootout, as  the teams traded punts and failed 4th down conversion back and forth, and headed into half time with a score of 10-7, Smryna on top.

After coming back from halftime, the Bulldogs extended their lead with a field goal, making it 13-7.

That score would not change for most of the game, until Junior TJ Sheffield intercepted a Smryna 4th down conversion try, and ran it back to the Independence 40-yard line.

From there, the Eagles would take it 60 yards downfield in 9 plays, and score on a 6-yard run from Troy Henderson.

The Eagles defense held up, and left Smyrna with a win.

“We started off slow, but ended up finishing strong and coming out with a win”, said Senior Linebacker and Captain Jace Roberts.

“We did what it takes to win, and now we just have to get prepared for next week”

The Eagles rematch Ravenwood tonight at 7 pm, at Ravenwood, and hope to make their third consecutive quarter-final.
