Eagles playing tough on gridiron, but Ws are eluding them

The Arlington Eagles football team lost their second to last home game of the year, 31-6, Friday, Oct. 6.
With the loss, the Eagles fell to 1-4 in league play and 1-5 overall while the visiting Vikings of Lake Stevens improved to 3-2, 4-2.
Arlingtons lone score came on their first offensive drive when senior quarterback Trevor Milless connected with junior defensive back Brandon Gunter for a 16-yard touchdown pass.
First-year head coach Tim Tramp described it as a beautiful play.
It was a middle screen and we hit it just right, Tramp said. They were blitzing us and Milless caught them coming over the middle. Abe Bourasaw and Derek Johnson had nice blocks and Gunter made it happen.
The extra point was unsuccessful.
Tramp said he felt the overall play of Milless was solid in the Wesco North league loss.
He was poised enough to throw for 151 yards and had some fantastic plays, he said.
Unfortunately, he also had some that had us scratching our heads. Overall I have been real pleased with his progress.
The Eagles travel to Monroe Friday, Oct. 13, to face the Bearcats. Game time is 7 p.m.
We looked great in our first drive, but also had moments where we looked like we didnt know what we were doing. We turned the ball over four times and it is hard to win when you have multiple turnovers.
Overall, Tramp, his coaching staff and the team are still hungry to finish the season on a good note.
We are looking forward to playing Monroe, Tramp said. For the most part we have been in every game, but I think we just have to learn how to win and finish the job.
