GREENE: Eagles raise bar again

Published Saturday, December 2, 2017
By Richard Greene

After a fifth straight Decatur possession ended without points, the Eagles desperately needed a break Friday night. Two plays later a bad snap rolled on the turf to Hirschi quarterback Martez V’rana with Decatur defenders closing in. Instead of the turnover the Eagles needed, V’rana corralled the ball and then broke free for a back-breaking 69-yard touchdown run to send Hirschi on the way to a 58-28 victory at C.H. Collins Athletic Complex in Denton.

Hirschi ends Decatur’s run

Published Saturday, December 2, 2017
By Reece Waddell

For the first few minutes, it looked like Decatur’s Cinderella season would continue Friday against Wichita Falls Hirschi. On the first drive of the game, junior quarterback Wilson Hicks found Dane Fitzgerald on a seam route that led to a quick touchdown to put the Eagles up 7-0. But that’s when time began running out on Decatur’s playoff run. As the Eagles’ offense started to sputter, the Huskies’ offense got going, quickly building a double-digit lead. And on a 68-yard touchdown run by Daimarqua Foster in the third quarter, the clock eventually struck midnight, as Hirschi downed Decatur 58-28 to close the book on the Eagles’ storybook year.
