Eagles Drop Home Opener

The Tongue River Eagles football team hadn't played a game in front of their home crowd since the 2010 season, as there weren't enough players to field a team last year. That all changed Friday, as the Eagles hosted Glenrock for their home opener. While the final score of 39-10 wasn't exactly the outcome that the team, or the fans would have liked, spirits remained high after the loss as football was once again back in Tongue River.
