The Eagles picked up their first league win in six games on Friday night against the Crook County Cowboys. Their commanding 52-20 homecoming night victory came from a dominant running game, as the Eagles outrushed the Cowboys 517 yards to 184.
Leading the way offensively for Hood River was Ian Bohince, with 175 yards rushing, followed by Erick Lujano with 122 yards and Chase Munos with 109 yards.
The boys jumped out to an early lead, scoring 11 points in the first quarter. With the homecoming crowd pumped up to witness the Eagles’ first at home win this season, the team put together an even better second quarter, firing up for 21 more points before halftime.
Against a lineup Coach Tracy Jackson would have liked throughout the season, the Crook County boys fought back too little too late, outscoring the Eagles 14 points to 13 in the fourth quarter. With touchdowns from Bohince, Obed Bello, Munos, Lujano, Jeremy Rowley and Tony Guisto, plus five out of six extra points kicked by Tim Chance, the Eagles’ racked up their highest score of the season.
And the boys will need all the momentum they can pull together, as they face Pendleton at home this Friday night. The Buckaroos look to finish undefeated this season after destroying the conference’s second place team, Redmond, 45-14 last Friday.
A win for Hood River would be one for the record books.
