VIDEO: Glasgow Dragons take on Smyrna Eagles in the first football game of the season
Friday night was the first game of the season for the Glasgow Dragons as they defeated the Smyrna Eagles 20-15.
On the first play of the game Smyrna's #10 Jamal Powell returned the opening kickoff to the house only to fumble in the end zone. The Eagles were fortunate as #20 Trayvon Cannon scooped up the loose ball for the touchdown putting the Eagles ahead 7-0.
The Dragons would respond as Quarterback LaMont Brown would rush for a pair of touchdowns late in the first quarter. The Dragons would miss both 2-point conversions to go up 12-7. Smyrna's Quarterback #5 Avery McMullin then threw a bullet to #7 Maurice McFolling-Nichols for a touchdown. The 2-point conversion would be good as the Eagles took a 15-12 lead going into halftime.
The second half would be all defense until late in the fourth. With only a minute left to go, 4th and goal, Glasgow's LaMont Brown would find wide receiver Jai C. Waylon for the go ahead score. Brown would run in the 2-point conversion himself as the Dragons went on to the 20-15 victory.
