Pre-season match-up for national bragging rights

In a game to claim national bagging rights - billed as a "Battle of National Champions" - last year's top-rated California School for the Deaf (CSD) Eagles faced highly regarded Maryland School for the Deaf Orioles on August 31st. Both teams were intent on proving they belonged to an elite group of teams about to take the field for the coming football season.

The Eagles and Orioles have chosen a fast-moving West Coast Offense which promised an exciting match. This proved to be the case as early on, the Eagles relied on its trademark defense but was handicapped by the loss of key players who graduated in June. Nevertheless, the Eagles penetrated the Oriole offensive line, forcing the quarterback to scramble.

Early on, things looked good for the home team but Oriole speed and excellent pass receptions told the tale as a two-touchdown lead opened and proved too much for the Eagles to overcome. Fighting back, the Eagles were able to score a touchdown of their own to close the gap, but lost 16-6.
