It was what the Hebron Christian School Eagles had worked so hard for this season.

Last Friday night, the Eagles finally broke through into the win column by beating North Sunflower Academy 26-8.

Hebron Christian coach David Foster said the victory provided encouragement for everyone associated with football at the school. It was the first varsity win for the Eagles since 2015.

"They needed that as we all did," Foster said. "We played well enough to win. Before looking at the film, I would have graded it an A game, but actually it was a B-minus game. We've got to play an A game against this bunch we are fixing to play, but I was proud of them and we had a good time."

Hebron Christian hosts DeSoto School Friday night in Pheba with kickoff set for 7:30 p.m. It is the third game four straight at home to finish the season for the Eagles.

Against DeSoto School, Bradley Scott had two touchdowns and 182 yards rushing for Hebron, while Doug Loden added 102 yards on the ground and 10 tackles on defense. Quarterback Branden Triplett had one touchdown passing and one rushing.

Foster was glad to see his Eagles rewarded for their hard work this season.

"I told them all year that I don't know if it's going to be this year, but if you get better, you win," Foster said.
