MSD varsity football loses game 28-0

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School varsity football team played against Jensen Beach High School on Sept. 14, from 6-8:30 p.m. before their homecoming game the following week against Monarch High School.

The Eagles began the evening with a three and out which led to a turnover on downs at midfield. The Eagles forced a punt inside the 10 yard line.

After a first down, Eagles quarterback Jaxon Anger (18) threw an interception. Jensen Beach drove the ball far down the field, but came up short at midfield and was forced to punt; the eagles still were falling behind at the end of the first quarter, but still had a chance to take the lead.

With a minute left in the first quarter, the Falcons drove down the field and scored a touchdown against the Eagles, with them leading 6-0.

With Jensen leading, the Eagles were eager to try and pull ahead of them.

The second half begins with the Eagles starting with the ball. Jensen Beach scored another touchdown but got called back due to a holding, the Eagles had a chance to score until Jensen Beach scored again on the next play on a pass to the back right corner of the end zone.

“I think we could have scored more, we could have produced more,” linebacker Joey Chiera (34) said. “I think the whole team could have had a better outing and we could have tried harder, and I think it comes down to that at the end of the day.”

Jensen Beach fumbled on the next play of the second quarter from defensive end Ryan Cruz (99). This gave the eagles a chance to pull ahead to score a touchdown, but led to another interception.

The Eagles were forced to punt again, turning into another touchdown from Jensen Beach, defeating the Eagles 28-0, hoping to come back stronger in the homecoming game next week.

“We tried our hardest, we hope to bounce back at Monarch, but our defense this game was solid. We are hoping to push forward into the season,” linebacker John Tardalo (33) said.

The Eagles ended with a tough loss of 28-0 to Jensen Beach, but the team continues to train and prepare for the upcoming games in their season.

“We are trying to have better techniques and strategies for our upcoming season, our team just needs to trust our coaches,” cornerback Ernst Anicet (4) said.

Overall, the Eagles tried to pull through the game, with strong defense and good plays all throughout, but didn’t get the win. Their next home game is Friday, Sept. 22 at 7 p.m, against Monarch High School.
