Aug. 30 was a historic night in Washington County for high school football when all three schools varsity teams won on the same night.
That is something that hadn’t happened since Eastern started playing high school football in 2007.
Salem beat Silver Creek 21-20, West Washington blanked Crawford County 46-0 and Eastern defeated Clarksville 52-22.
The trend could have continued last Friday, with SHS and WWHS both winning, the problem was Brownstown stood in the way of allowing another three-way win.
The Braves visited Pekin and left town with a 53-9 win.
The Musketeers started the game with the kind of fire it takes to beat the Braves, but Reed May’s crew quickly turned that around.
Leading 12-0 at the end of the first quarter, Brownstown Central’s junior quarterback Clay Brown connected with Jacob Wilson three times in the second period for three touchdowns and a total of 98 yards.
Those plays put the game out of reach 34-0 by halftime.
Eastern continued to battle and finally found the endzone late in the fourth quarter off a one-yard run by junior quarterback Austin Roberts.
Roberts connected with Coty Estes on the two point conversion to make the score 53-8.
Eastern will try to regroup and get ready to travel to Sellersburg to take on Silver Creek.
The game against the Dragons will get underway at 7 p.m.
Both teams are 1-2 and looking for their second win on the young season.
