COSBY—The Cosby Eagles just can’t seem to catch a break.
Injuries, a lack of depth and a tough schedule have contributed to an 0-2 start, and the tough slate of games continues this week as they host region rival Cloudland at 7:30 p.m. Friday (RADIO: WLIK 1270-AM, Tape Delay).
The Highlanders have begun the season 2-0 and are quite possibly the hottest team in the region right now.
A potent rushing attack and solid defense have made Cloudland a potential favorite to win the league this year, despite not having a ton of depth.
Cosby head coach Kevin Hall knows that in order to beat the Highlanders, the Eagles will have to cut down on the turnovers and play better defensively.
The Eagles finished with four turnovers against West Greene last week, and had a difficult time slowing down the Buffaloes offense.
“We would’ve liked better results the first two games, but region play is where it starts,” Hall said. “We’ve got to step our game up, cut down on some turnovers, fix a few mistakes and really leave all of that stuff in the past starting with region play this week."
