  • Oh, what a night

    It was, at times, brutal. Other times, it was inspired.

    But in the end, Bronson came out of their battle with Daytona Beach Father Lopez with a narrow 8-7 victory last Friday night.

    The victory served as a revitalization for the Eagles, who now set their sights on a tough Bell program Friday.

    It was also a complete turnaround from last season, when Father Lopez topped Bronson, 27-22, in another close matchup.
