Eagles’ flag football team remains undefeated

They are 7-0 overall and 5-0 in the Southeast League. The only other unbeaten team is Arbor View at 7-0.

On Dec. 18 at home against Basic, Boulder City won 20-6 behind sophomore quarterback Jeanne Carmell, who tossed two touchdown passes to Jane Nevarez. Carmell completed 8 of 14 passes for 145 yards and rushed for 67 yards on seven carries for Boulder City.

On Dec. 19, the Lady Eagles defeated the Chaparral Cowboys 27-6 as Carmell threw for 165 yards and three touchdown passes. Smyth had five catches for 50 yards and two touchdowns. Cameron Kanaley had four receptions, 85 yards and one touchdown.

“The team is working hard in practice and playing tough in the games. So far, they are meeting all the challenges,” coach Chris Morelli said.

The Lady Eagles are off for the holiday break and return to action at home Jan. 6 against Southeast Career Technical Academy.
