Friday night was very exciting for Georgetown High School as our Varsity Football team defeated the Elgin Wildcats, and presented the Homecoming King and Queen (Ryan McDonnell and Jamie Downs) during halftime.

Eagle fans went wild as senior Beau Corrales made a one-handed catch within the end-zone. The student section cheered loudly for our Varsity Eagles as they scored touchdown after touchdown. The game had a final score of 62-20.

Halftime was exciting for all but Elgin. Elgin’s band, according to some students, unfortunately played quietly and un-enthusiastically, and the crowd seemingly lost interest.

The Georgetown Band, Georgettes, and Cheerleaders once again brought excellence to the field, performing at the end of the game due to short time.

The Georgetown student section experienced a great amount of excitement, and was very loud, but for all the wrong reasons. Upperclassmen screamed at the underclassmen to vacate their half of the student section, and underclassmen refused. Seniors began to question other students, interrogation style, asking if they were upperclassmen or not, and if they were underclassmen, they were told to leave. In many student’s opinions, we should have focused more on the game, the reason for coming, rather than each other.

The Eagles (4-0) will now prepare for their game against Bastrop.
