As expected, this game did not disappoint, as this was a hard hitting, grind it out type of game. To open the game, Chichester received the kickoff, and returned the ball to about the 40 yard line. On the first play, the Eagles QB Taylor connected with his wide receiver for about a 26 yard play and a first down. Eventually the Eagles drive would stall and Chester would get the ball on downs. Much of the same would be the story for much of the first quarter, at the end of the first quarter, there was no score. In the second quarter, both teams had moments again, but penalties and miscues would halt drives. Defense was a huge part of the game as both defenses wouldn’t break, until, midway thru the second quarter when the Clippers offense started to string together some big plays, quarterback Isaiah Freeman connected on a screen play for a huge gain, and then running back Aton Sterling, who ended the game with 18 carries for 105 yards broke one for about 17 yards to set up the Clippers only score of the game when Chester’s quarterback Isaiah Freeman who finished the game with 51 yards passing, and 1 touchdown, connected with Darron Miller for a 21 yard touchdown with 6:20 left in the first half, the missed extra point made the score 6 to 0, that would be the score at the half as well.
The Clippers received the second half kickoff, and would move the ball against the Eagles defense but would eventually stall. This would be the much the same for the Eagles as well during the rest of the game, the Eagles had a slew of big plays that would be called back due to penalties, one of which would’ve tied the game when Eagles QB Zack Taylor connected with his wide receiver Zaquan Bruton for a 50 yard touchdown called back for holding with just 2:11 left to play in the game. Both teams played very well on defense as the Eagles recorded 7+ sacks for total of around 30 yards lost, and the Clippers recorded 6 sacks and numerous tackles for loss, Jakai Boegertey ended the game with 13 tackles(2TFL and 1 sack). Clippers punter had 5 punts for 163 yards which would pin the Eagles offense deep in their own territory for most of the day. The Eagles would had another chance to put points on the board before that huge pass play when they would quickly march down the field, only to have the drive stall as again, was most of the case throughout the day as you can see by watching the extended highlights video along with coach post game interviews shown below.
