EHS Football Team

This week we honor the EHS Football team as our Male Athletes of the Week. This team sets at 4-2 on the year. Last week due to the WV Covid color map, Randolph Co was gold. Which limited the Tigers to play either another gold county school or one in their own county. It just so happend that we had 2 ranked football teams in their respective classes in our county. The #12 Tigers and the #4 Bulldogs of Tygarts Valley. For the first time, these 2 schools met on the gridiron for Varsity play. It was no disappointment either. Both teams grinded it out with the Bulldogs coming out fast and ferocious taking an early 21-7 lead in the 1st quarter. But the Tigers coaching staff didn’t panic and this resonated to the players as well. They chipped away in the 2nd quarter and found themselves ahead by 2 leading into halftime. They never looked back as they claimed a 39-34 victory. It is easy to agree that both teams are very special this year and we believe are going to do great things as the season unfolds. This win had multiple outstanding moments and individuals who put up great stats, but at EPT&SIC we truly feel this was a team win that each player taking the field contributed and helped secure the win. This was a great job by the coaching staff making adjustments as the game was being played out. We say congratulations to the EHS Football team and coaches! They are now setting in the 11th spot during a bye week. Keep up the great work Tigers!
