Lucas Meerten, Eagle Point start season with a bang, notch win over Springfield

Eagle Point 24, Springfield 7: Lucas Meerten returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown, springing the visiting Eagles to the win in Springfield.

Meerten, second-team all-division last season at wide receiver and defensive back, also had a receiving touchdown.

Reagan Scheffler led Eagle Point with 11 tackles and two forced fumbles.

Freshman Connor Dye rushed for more than 100 yards and scored the Millers’ touchdown.

Friday’s game was created this week after each team’s scheduled opponent was unable to play owing to coronavirus issues. Eagle Point was to play host to Roseburg, whereas Springfield was to cross I-5 and head north on Coburg Road to play Sheldon of Eugene.
