The Eastern Greene Thunderbirds football team picked up right where they left off in week 1 of the football season. The Thunderbirds’ defense allowed minus 22 yards on the night against a team that put up 35 points in the 2nd half of last year’s game 1. The weather played into Eastern Greene’s favor this year as the Blackhawk’s potent throwing game just couldn’t do anything in the monsoon conditions.
The Thunderbirds are back in action next Friday, August 24th when they travel to Southwest Conference foe, North Knox. Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m. GO THUNDERBIRDS!
