Defensively #22 Codey Henderson lead the defense with 3 tackles and 4 assists. For this game’s defensive player of the game we go to #67 Luis Marquez who had 1 tackle and 6 assists.

Although the Olney Cubs Varsity team fell to the Eagles, they remain positive and committed to making this a winning season. Losses like this give the opportunity to learn where the improvements should be made. The Cubs need the support of the community, which really helps keep them pushing forward. Fight on Cubs!!!
