Aug 26, 2017THATCHER'S DEFENSE DOMINATES BENSON
The Thatcher Eagle defense set the tone on the very first play of the game when Safety Tyler Roebuck intercepted a Talon Palmer pass. The Eagles capitalized 6 plays later and never looked back.

Benson was only able to muster 49 total yards of offense in a game that was shortened by the mercy rule.

Thatcher scored 5 rushing touchdowns and 1 in the air en route to their 2nd straight blowout victory.

They will host Safford on Friday at EAC. The Bulldogs are 2-0 and have yet to give up a point.
