WUFT/WRUF’s Chris Kirschner gives a quick wrap-up to Friday night’s district game.
Even with six suspensions on defense, the Eastside Rams football team stood its ground on D.
The Rams squeaked out a 13-10 win against the North Marion Colts Friday night in a District 5A matchup.
Eastside was led by cornerback Kieandre McCrae who had two interceptions in the game with one of them locking up the win in the fourth quarter.
Stamina was a factor for Eastside. In total, nine suspensions forced the Rams to have to play offensive players on both sides of the ball.
But, the Rams persevered at Citizens Field pushing their record to 2-3 on the season with two of those wins coming against district opponents.
Looking forward, Eastside battles Suwannee Oct. 4 in their third district game of the season.
