The "new" Winslow Township High School's Eagles football team started its first football season today with a shutout against Pine Hill's Overbrook High School. Winslow, formally known as Edgewood, were beginning a new chapter for the 2001-2002 season. The Eagles won with a 19-0 score in this non-league Olympic Conference game for both teams.
The Eagles, coached by Bob Bernardo, scored in three of the game's four periods. In the first period, quarterback Antraye Miles scored on a one yard run making the score 6-0 when the extra point kick was missed. Late in the second quarter, running back Shonn Greene ran for fifty-one yards and the score. The extra point run failed and the score at halftime was 12-0. In the final quarter of the game, Matt Thomas scored on a forty-five yard run.
It will take some time for most high school football fans to get use to the Winslow name, but the winning tradition seems to be the same. The Eagles' next game will have them traveling to Washington Township in a league game at on Friday night. It will be the next test for the Eagles to get everyone to remember the new name of Winslow Township.
