Eagle offense too much for Lions Horatio coach Mark King's assessment of the Cutter-Morning Star offense proved to be right on the money. The Eagles scored first and more than matched every Horatio comeback effort as CMS prevailed 54-26 in the season opener.

After another Eagle TD, Pedro Ruvalcaba pulled in the first of his two touchdown passes from Cole Boyd. The 20 yard play got the Lions within a touchdown, but they could get no closer.
