Eagles soar past Chargers in Chicago
At an arena named after an airline, it was probably appropriate that the group flying highest was the one with wings.
The Eagles are only a nickname for Sandburg athletic teams, of course, not an actual description of roster members, but on Saturday at the United Center that moniker was dead-on accurate. In the view of Stagg coach John Daniels, the Eagles were definitely birds of prey.
And their quarry was Daniels’ Chargers. While Stagg and Sandburg have always shared the same school district, this season they have renewed acquaintances in a conference sense as well as all Chargers squads now compete in the SouthWest Suburban Blue.
Stagg did indeed battle the Eagles on pretty even terms, at least for a while. However, a decisive third quarter gave Sandburg a huge boost, both emotionally and on the scoreboard, and the Eagles went on to log a 59-46 triumph.
