Irish shut down by EV-W Eagles

by Dave Schroeder
On a cool, wet, sloppy Friday evening, the Irish invaded Eagle territory to kick off CMC play for the 2010 season. This game had a somewhat big build-up as both teams have been mentioned as a conference favorite this year. The game, however, did not live up to the hype as Eden Valley-Watkins and its stingy defense shut out the Irish 28-0 in the mud.
