The Preston Indians got their first victory of the season with a 21-14 victory over Marsh Valley on the Eaglesâ€™ home turf on a windy Friday night. The win lifted Preston to 1-1 on the season and gave the team some needed confidence.
Preston was kept off-balance during the first half of its game by the Eaglesâ€™ defense. Whatever head coach Nick Hyde said to his players at halftime worked. The Indians seemed like a different team.
Running back Tyson Lumbreras took control and scored all three of Prestonâ€™s touchdowns on runs of one, 22 and seven yards. But the 3A Eagles didnâ€™t roll over and play dead. In the third quarter Marsh Valley took the ball on an 80-yard drive for pay dirt and a two-point conversion that knotted the score at 14-14.
In the fourth quarter, the Indians marched 80 yards on a long drive of their own and scored the go-ahead touchdown with only a minute left on the clock.
