The Preston Indians got their first victory of the season with a 21-14 victory over Marsh Valley on the Eagles’ 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 Eagles’ 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 Preston’s touchdowns on runs of one, 22 and seven yards. But the 3A Eagles didn’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.
