It's Been a Year Since This Happened...

Wow, I didn't realize it when I went into the stadium, but it have been almost a full year since Abilene High played a home game at Shotwell Stadium on a Friday night. The Eagles only two home games earlier this year were on a Saturday and a Thursday. It was also a milestone in that AHS was playing its first game in its new (old) district. Two years ago AHS was moved into a district in DFW, breaking up one of the most storied high school football districts in the state. Even the worst teams in this district were sure to pose a bigger challenge to the Eagles than any of the district opponents they had last year. Coming off a loss in their last game and and off week last week they team came out looking like they were ready to get back on the winning side. AHS went up 28-0 in the first half and hiccuped a little in the third quarter, but ended up turning things on at the end of the quarter and beginning of the fourth to win pretty easily 49-21. It's good to see the Little SWC back together and see some actual fans on the visitors side of the stadium again. Next week is Midland Lee in Midland on ESPN2 Thursday night.
