Musketeers manhandle Eagles

by Brian Magee

The Red Bud varsity football team returned to their winning ways last week with a convincing win over nemesis and conference rival Columbia. It’s always an interesting contest when these two teams meet and this year was no exception. The Eagles came to Red Bud with a 5-2 record compared to the Musketeers’ 4-3 mark and the teams matched up well on paper.

The Musketeers’ defense was clicking during the first quarter as the Boys were able to stop the Eagles’ passing game and stifle the run, but Columbia matched the Red Bud effort holding the home team scoreless during the frame.
