The Eagles were out to reclaim the crown in the annual Clash at the Coast as they traveled to Morro Bay. The 2014 game between the two teams came down to the final three seconds of play, ending with what many deemed a controversial call by a referee that resulted in a win for Morro Bay. This year, the Eagles were full of excitement and energy, ready to fight for the win.
