It was great night for football Baty-Simmang Memorial Stadiumwhere the Bowie Bears hosted the Andress Eagles. Both Bowie and Andress had playoff aspirations entering the evening, but it was the Eagles that showed up ready to punch their playoff ticket and launched into the post season. Andress had a solid 56-0 win and they had everything go their way to have such a large margin of victory. The game opened with Bowie winning the toss and driving to the Andress 13 before turning the ball over on downs.
For the remainder of the game, the Bears never saw the Andress half of the field until the last play of the game. That is how dominant the Eagles played. The Eagles defense was like a brick wall and threw the passing game for a loop as SS had two drive ending picks of Bowie QB Justin Diaz. Andress held Bowie to 118 total yards on the game (49 yard passing, 69 yards rushing).
Offensively, the Eagles amassed 360 total yards (276 rushing, 84 yards passing) and spread the touchdowns among 5 rushers. Two Eagles had multiple scores as RB Keandre Jones had two scores on the ground and QB Jeremiah Tosky threw for two touchdowns and ran one in himself. Even the special teams did their part in partially blocking two punts in the game.
Heading the final week of the season, Andress can share a piece of a championship if Austin can take down district leading Burges, and would cause a three way time between the three schools. Regardless, all three of these teams are in for the playoffs.
The Bowie Bears can still make a run at the post season as well. They end the season taking on Jefferson and the final playoff spot is on the line. If the Bears can rebound and win against their southside rivals, they can extend the season by at least one more game.
