Using the strategy that made his college coach a national name, Bobby Martin's Eagles used defense, special teams, and a strong running back to win the first game in Martin's tenure. The defense accounted for the only points of the first half, when Sophomore Free Safety Malik Clements picked off a pass and scored from 33 yards out! He later added a second interception---one of three G.W. picks on the night. In the second half, special teams set up a score as Jeremiah McGeough drilled a PERFECT coffin corner punt to the one! Two plays later, the Eagles tackled a back in the end zone for a safety to take a 9-0 lead. After returning the free kick to the Petersburg 35, Travis Jones sealed the deal from eight yards out, giving the Eagles their first season-opening shutout win since 1993.
