Eagles junior high win opening game The Irene/Wakonda Eagles junior high football team started its season with an impressive win over Viborg 22-6. Leading the scoring effort was Matthew Davis hauling in two 20-yard touchdown passes thrown by Josh Nielson.
Capping off the scoring for the Eagles was Jordan Mayer with a two-yard run. The extra points were scored by Nielson and Mayer.
Defensively, the blue shirts held the Viborg offense in check with a great team effort. Leading the way for the Eagle's defense was Eric Anderson and Skyler Bender with two quarterback sacks apiece. Way to go Eagles!
