For nearly four quarters, both the Eagles and the Vikings hammered away at each other. The Eagles' offense worked hard for every touchdown they got, and it took an interception and a fumble before Windham was able to breathe easier and slip away with 26-10 victory over Oxford Hills last Friday night.
The Eagles started pushing in the second quarter and quarterback Leslie threw a 36-yard pass to Zach Davis that placed Windham on the 14-yard line. From there, Windham worked its way to the two when Kyle Houser scored and Josh Dugas added on the extra point.
The Vikings tried to work their way down field but just couldn't find the end zone. The Eagles continued towards the Vikings' 4-yard line and called upon Josh Dugas again to boot another field goal, making it 13-7 at the half.
Though the Eagles were missing some key players, they made do and it showed in the second half. Windham's Desmond Leslie threw a stunning 47-yard pass to Kyle Kilfoil. The Eagles inched their way up to the 16 where Griffin Jacobson scored, but the conversion failed, leaving Windham with the lead of 19-7.
Late in the fourth quarter, the Vikings fumbled and Windham's Matt Roy recovered putting the Vikings out of commission.
Next varsity football game is this Friday, October 24th, 7 p.m. at home against Bonny Eagle.
