BREMEN, Ala. – After taking a tough loss at Berry last week, the Cold Springs Eagles returned home Friday night to open up region play against Southeastern. The Eagles and Mustangs went back and forth throughout the game but in the end, it was Cold Springs finishing out in front and leaving the field with a region win.

The Eagles jumped out to an early 7-0 lead in the opening quarter but Southeastern tied the game at 7 by the start of the second. The Mustangs took a 14-7 lead early in the second, but Cold Springs was able to respond and cut the lead to 14-13. The Mustangs scored again in the second, going up 20-13 but the Eagles were able to find the end zone and tie the game at 20. Southeastern was able to strike one more time late in the second quarter and take a 27-20 advantage into the halftime break.

Cold Springs scored again midway through the third and a successful two-point conversion gave the Eagles a 28-27 lead. The Eagles found the end zone one more time in the final frame to go up 34-27 and despite a Southeastern score cutting that lead to 34-33, they couldn’t overcome Cold Springs and were sent home with an 0-1 start in region play.

The region win makes Cold Springs 2-1 so far this season and the Eagles will be looking for win number three when they travel to Sumiton Christian next week.
