Tuesday evening saw a tough match for the Sanford-Fritch Eagles against the visiting Bushland Falcons.
The Eagles never could get their rhythm and Bushland took advantage and capitalized beating the Eagles in a big way.
First and second quarters was about Eagles just trying to slow down the Falcons and getting shots to fall. Eagles walked off at halftime behind 10-37.
The Eagles crew tried many different looks to get past a tough defensive Falcon team. It would be a long night and despite the incredible depth of Bushland, Sanford-Fritch finished with guts and heart.
