The Eagles had four players rush for over 100 yards in a 60-3 romp at Living Word Lutheran in the Midwest Classic Conference opener for both teams in Jackson. That set records for most points scored in a game and biggest margin of victory for CLS, which is in its third year as a varsity program.

Christian Life football program making its presence felt


KENOSHA — In two-plus seasons as a varsity program, the Christian Life football team has three wins.

But the Eagles may have earned more notice in a 28-20 loss at Shoreland Lutheran on Friday night than they have in any of their victories.

Pacers outbattle Eagles


SOMERS — Trey Johnson, the do-it-all senior for the Shoreland Lutheran football team, admitted that the Pacers may have been overconfident going into Friday’s game against Christian Life, a third-year program that Shoreland beat by a combined 85 points each of the last two seasons.

But by the time the Pacers used two fourth-quarter defensive stands to repel a furious Eagles comeback and secure a 28-20 win at Shoreland in a game between teams that entered 1-0, the physically spent players on both sides shook hands with respect.

Eagles break in new field with victory

Christian Life seeking stability


Continuity is the name of the game for the Christian Life football team and second-year coach Mike Fisher.

After posting the first wins in varsity history last season, Fisher said the plan is to build upon the foundation the young program has established. By overhauling the offseason lifting program and keeping the same systems in place, Fisher said this season could be a turning point for the Eagles.
