Silver Oak will need ample big plays going forward. The challenging upcoming schedule includes home games against Western Maryland powers Allegany and Fort Hill and a road game at private school behemoth Mount St. Joseph's.
For the second consecutive game, the inexperienced Eagles (0-2) fell behind early but did not show any signs of giving up. Senior lineman and team captain Tommy Mahoney disrupted the Silver Oak offense.
Sophomore Kane Richardson, sophomore Bobby Sylves and senior Kris Barmoy had fumble recoveries for the Eagles in the first half.
On an unusually hot September evening, several players on both teams cramped up, leading to multiple injury delays.
With less than 2 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, the game was stopped due to an injury to a Silver Oak player. The player, identified as Budd by a Silver Oak coach, was immobilized on a backboard and placed in a Union Bridge ambulance.
