This week, Eastside will play Eastbrook in their first ever regional home game for the Blazers and a rematch from their 42-9 loss in the 2019 regional title game.
Eastside and Eastbrook both come in at a combined 33-0 record with two teams that are athletic teams, score a ton of points, and playing unreal defense. If Eastside wins this game, they’ll win their first ever regional championship.
For Eastside, they played a perfect road game in a 21-16 win over Bishop Luers in a game that their front 7 dominated for most of that night. For Eastbrook, the Engle kids carried the way to a 28-21 win over sectional rival Tipton.
Once again, this is a game that’s going to show which team can control the line of scrimmage and who can take care of the football better. Either way, it’s going to be a great football game in Butler.
