COACH BRUECKNER'S QUOTE
"We came out a bit slow, but then started attacking. Daniel had a great finish to score a goal and Miguel had one of the best goals I've seen in quite some time from 35 yards out. We let off the brakes a little bit and Central Baptist got one. We had some tired legs and we just had to grind it out in the second half. Our back three did a great job of closing out the game and keeping them off the scoreboard."
EAGLES' NEXT MATCH
The Eagles open conference play September 14 by hosting Howard Payne University.
