The East­side Ea­gles lost their re­gion opener and took their sec­ond loss of the sea­son against Ch­es­ta­tee Fri­day night, fall­ing 33-23 at Sharp Sta­dium.

East­side strug­gled to slow down Ch­es­ta­tee’s run­ning at­tack. Ch­es­ta­tee ran the ball very ef­fec­tively, gain­ing chunks of yards on each of its car­ries.

“We made too many mis­takes,” East­side coach Rick Hurst said. “We (have) to fix be­tween the ears right now; it’s not the phys­i­cal part.”

East­side (2-2, 0-1) came out of the gates strong, scor­ing the first points of the game on its sec­ond drive. East­side moved me­thod­i­cally on the drive, as Jo­mandi Smith, Car­los Hug­gins, An­drew Hen­der­son and An­thony Hen­der­son all had car­ries on the pos­ses­sion that to­taled 34 yards.

Ch­es­ta­tee re­sponded quickly score.

Ch­es­ta­tee run­ning back Zachary Cheshire had a huge drive open­ing up the sec­ond quar­ter. Cheshire had two big runs on the se­ries, one for 16 yards and an­other for 27 yards. He fin­ished the drive with a 4-yard run for a touch­down.

East­side’s Jaquan Hen­der­son took the en­su­ing kick­off for a 99yard touch­down af­ter Cheshire’s score, giv­ing East­side a 16-6 lead.

Ch­es­ta­tee scored once more be­fore half­time on a 35-yard run to the house
