Expectations are higher than they have been for the Eastern football team since the program played its first varsity game in 2007.
Friday night’s 39-0 blasting of Crawford County did little to spoin those expectations.
The Musketeers scored six points in the first quarter, added 20 in the second and tacked on 13 more for good measure in the third.
Eastern scored in a variety of different ways.
Ryan Tandy got things going for the Musketeers with an eight-yard run.
The Musketeers second play came on something that has been missing from Eastern in the past few seasons, the big play. Michael Givans and Trey Albertson hooked up for a 72-yard pass and catch play for the game’s second score.
Tandy was back at when he scored on a 96-yard run with 4:29 remaining in the second quarter.
Givans was back on the attack through the air with 52 seconds remaining in the first quarter when he connected with Spencer Gilstrap on a 19-yard pass play.
Albertson scored his second touchdown of the game in the third quarter when he returned a fumble eight yards for a touchdown.
Eastern’s final score of the game came with 4:50 remaining in the third quarter when Devon Webb scored on a 25-yard run.
Tandy led the Musketeers in rushing with 178 yards on seven carries, which figures into an average of 25.4 yards a carry.
Webb had 103 yards on eight carries.
Givans completed two of four passes for 91 yards and two touchdowns.
The Musketeers are 1-0 heading into their Mid Southern Conference opener Friday against Clarksville.
Eastern’s 0-4 against the Generals in their only meetings.
The closest match-up between the two teams was last year’s 33-13 win by Clarksville.
