10/14/11 El Segundo Eagles vs Lawndale Cardinals

As the fog rolled in on a crisp Friday evening,the El Segundo Eagles got ready to take on the Lawndale Cardinals. The Eagles looked to get back on top after blowing a huge halftime lead against Oak Park. After having an extra week to prepare, the Eagles came out strong from their Bye week. Quarterback Daniel Zeman had a big day completing 17 of his 26 pass attempts for 278 yards. The Eagles opened up their playbook as well. The play of the game was an unorthodox bounce pass from Zeman to Brasher and then to Zac Stone for a Touchdown. The stunned Cardinals watched Stone cross the goal line on a play they assumed was dead. Zeman bounced the ball behind the line of scrimmage to Brasher who picked it up as a live ball and hit Stone for the Touchdown. The Eagles defense also played an efficient game holding the Cardinals to 17 points. They did let two long run plays occur but their offense picked them up on the other end. El Segundo made plays when it needed to and came out the victor in the Battle of the Birds.
