Almost shutting out the Eagles, CPFB won 47-7, on Sept. 25 at Georgetown.

CP started off the game with a touchdown by junior running back #31 Tyler Lavine in the first 40 seconds of the game. Once defense stepped on the field, senior defensive lineman #99 Will Lydle sacked the Eagles QB.

“It felt good getting that sack on the QB,” Lydle said. “I was just doing what my coaches tell me to do.”

Through the practices before the Georgetown game, CPFB focused on shutting down the Eagles best playmakers, according to wide receiver coach Pecos McDaniel.

“We didn’t want their receiver and running back making big plays on us,” McDaniel said. “Offensively, we were up against a good defensive line, and worked hard to be able to control the line of scrimmage.”

 Defensively, CP had good coverage, allowing the front seven defensive linemen to get pressure on the Eagles’ QB, according to Lydle. 

Our defense dominated them all night long.”

“We need to work on the communication on the field and completing our assignments,” Lydle said.

As for the CP students watching the game, they cheered continuously until the end.

“Our [CP] student section cheered the whole time,” junior Haley Youngberg said. “I was proud to be a part of CP.”

Friday Oct. 2 will be a by-week for CPFB, but according to McDaniel, it doesn’t mean that they will stop practicing.  

“Our focus this week is to work on the little things and focus on ourselves and our technique,” McDaniel said. “Starting Monday, we’ll put the focus on Leander and work to become familiar with their players and their tendencies.”

The “Cross Town Showdown” game will be Oct. 9 against Leander at Gupton Stadium.
