Bears outlast Eagles 62-41 in district opener

 

The Canton Eagles got their first taste of District 7-4A action last week, hitting the road to take on the Brownsboro Bears. The Eagles and Bears had met each of the past two seasons in non-district play with Canton scoring a 56-34 win in 2016 and Brownsboro bouncing back with a 26-21 win in 2017.

Due to the most recent UIL redistricting shuffle, Canton and Brownsboro will be paired each of the next two seasons in district play. Despite a gritty effort from an injury-plagued Canton team, Brownsboro would pull away late to score a 62-41 win over the Eagles.
