Hebron Christian wins first game of season

Daily Times Leader

It was a victory that made the long bus ride back from Louisiana much better for the Hebron Christian Eagles.

The Eagles made that trip worth it on Friday night after defeating Ben’s Ford Christian School 22-14.

“We needed that,” Hebron Christian coach David Foster said.

The Eagles jumped out to a 6-0 lead in the first half when Braeden Triplett scored on a 1-yard run. The two-point conversion failed.

In the third quarter, the Eagles trailed 14-6 until Jon Garrett Lowe caught a 33-yard scoring pass from Triplett and Triplett scored a two-point run to tie the score at 14-14.

Hebron scored the go-ahead touchdown with 2 minutes left in the game on a 45-yard run by Bradley Scott. Triplett ran in the two-point conversion for the second time to cap the scoring.

“We made a lot of mistakes in the first half on offense, but played good defense,” Foster said. “In the second half, we played a lot better on offense and played well enough on defense to get the win.”

The Eagles (1-2) return home next Friday to take on Delta Academy.
