Eagles rout Indians 61-7

Nocona’s special teams try to contain a Valley View punt returner.

VALLEY VIEW – Valley View’s defense and special teams teed the ball up for the Eagles’ offense Friday night as they totally dominated the Nocona Indians for more than three-quarters of play racing away to a 61-7 win.

Head coach Rick Weaver, speaking to his team following the game, noted the Eagles “hit us in the mouth” taking the battle to the Indians scoring on the second play of the game, as Clint Epperson raced 67 yards for the first of his five touchdowns on the night, four rushing and one returning a blocked kick for a score.

The Eagle defense forced Nocona to punt five times in the first half, blocking one while limiting the Indians to one first down, via penalty, in the first half.

Nocona managed a negative 28 yards in total offense in the half.

Meanwhile the Eagle offensive line was giving Clint Epperson room to run for 16 carries, 167 yards and three touchdowns in the first half.
