The Tongue River Eagles football team opened their season at home in Dayton Friday. Sheridan Media's Ron Richter was there and has the story.
A young inexperienced Eagles team couldn't over come several turnovers and costly penalties, as Rocky Mountain controlled most of the game with a balanced attack and won 35-0. Eagles Head Coach John Scott comments on the loss.
The injury bug continues to hit Tongue River, as Freshman Quarterback Will Kerns left the game late in the second half after taking a hard hit from a Grizzly defender. Coach Scott says that some of the bumps and bruises that they incurred could be avoided by playing smarter football.
The Eagles will look to rebound with another home game in Dayton Friday against Wheatland.
