Eagles Enjoy Caldwell Scrimmage
The Lexington Eagles did well in their first showcase of the 2011 season. They traveled to Caldwell, as they do every year, for the first scrimmage of the year. The Eagles moved the ball consistently against the Hornet defense.
The young, in experience, Eagle defense fared well, limiting Caldwell to just one long score in the controlled scrimmage. In the ‘live’ quarter, the Eagles topped the Hornets 2-0 with a long pass from Kogan Garrett to A.J. Flot for the first score and then a drive on the ground for the second score by Garrett.
In the controlled scrimmage Lexington scored on one of the first plays from scrimmage as Garrett tossed a wide flare pass to Josh Murray. Murray broke back toward the middle of the field, picked up a crushing block by Will Holcomb as he turned on the jets, and headed to the goal line. It appeared Lexington could have done that all scrimmage long, but Eagle coaches worked on other parts of the offensive game.
Defensive Coordinator Kirk Muhl was pleased with the overall performance with the defense. There were some individual breakdowns on pass coverage and techniques on the defensive front, as usual. After film study, those will be addressed in practice.
As predicted, there were some intense moments later in the scrimmage when tempers flared, but the coaches quickly got things under control. Sometimes those things are unavoidable and other times it is the official’s fault for not recognizing the situation and getting it under control.
