The Crossett Eagles brought home their first win of the season in Dewitt Friday night.

Tanner Courson and Randarious Terry scored the first 12 points, and thanks to a field goal by Adolfo Gonzalez kicked in overtime, the Eagles defeated the Dragons 15 to 12.

Neither team scored on their opening drive. The Dragons fumbled on their second possession, turning the ball over to the Eagles and allowing Terry to get the ball into the end zone.

The Eagles did not get the extra point, but were leading 6 to 0.

The Dragons fumbled again, giving Terry another recovery for the Eagles, this time in Dragon territory. The Dragon defense, however, kept the Eagles from the end zone.

Crossett then forced DeWitt to a punt.

The score was still 6 to 0 at the start of the second quarter, and the Eagles had the ball.

The Dragons forced the Eagles to another punt and took over on their own 25 yard line.

Dewitt began their first possession that would end with a score. They made their way into Eagle territory, and Dewitt quarterback Seth Courtney threw a 27 yard pass for a touchdown.

The Eagles and the Dragons battled back and forth, but neither team scored before the half.

The teams returned to the field for the third quarter with 6 to 6 on the scoreboard.

Crossett started the second half with the ball, but the Dragons forced the Eagles to punt.

The Dewitt possession didn’t last long. Tanner Courson recovered a fumble and scored 6 more points for the Eagles. Crossett was up 12 to 6 with eight minutes left in the third quarter.

The Dragons took back over, but had another possession interrupted by Courson.

The Eagles took over the ball on their own 24 yard line after Courson intercepted Courtney’s pass.

The Eagles were still ahead with two minutes left in the third quarter. They punted and then forced Dumas to punt at the beginning of the fourth.
