Terriers vs Golden Eagles This evening Byrd was hosting the
Golden Eagles from Staunton River.

Pick this one up in the second
half with the Terriers up 2 to nothing.
When the lead is cut to 1 as Bill
Morch settles and volleys it into the
back of the net for the goal.

But Byrd would answer with Chris
Collins who takes the pass in front and
1-times it home for the goal to put the
lead back to 2 at 3 to 1.
*CG final Staunton River Collins not done scoring on the 1 night, he would find the back of the William Byrd net again for the Terriers, this time 5 he wins the foot-race and Byrd wins 5
