It was a battle of epic proportions.

The Pirates of Page came to the Eagles Nest on their Senior night and they did not get what they were looking for.

The Golden Eagles won their last regular season and last conference game, with a final of 2-1. This was a thriller in every sense of the word “thriller.” So, for the first time since 1979, 35 years ago, the Golden Eagles will go to playoffs and claim a piece of the Metro 4A Conference Champ Title for the first time in school history. Carlos accomplished his goal, let’s keep it going.
