'Tm excited to see our guys improve over these first five games and see what we can build on." More specifically, he noted some players who could make a difference in the second half. "It was really nice to see Brandon (Pierce) make some solid catches in situations that we needed a big play," Dailer said. "Also, we use three dif- ferent quarterbacks, but I really liked what I saw out of McPherson, the sopho- more. Late in the game, he really connected on some of his throws." The Eagles scored their second touchdown late in the fourth quarter on a 2-yard pass from McPher- son to Smith in the right side of the endzone. Arlington travels to Monroe Oct 9.

"Our offense was pretty confident that we could score that hasn't been a problem all year." Teeter said. "Even though it can add a little pressure when you think you have to score every time you get the ball." The Tigers opened the game with a pair of touch- downs to take an early 14-0 lead. Quarterback Justin Lane was part of both Cougar touchdowns after, running in for a 2-yard score in the sec- ond quarter, and finding wideout Trent Melhart in the third quarter for a 9-yard TD.
