  Original Published: 4/12/2014Maybe the best thing about spring football practice and the spring football game according to head coach Lee Owens, is the fact that the Eagles got through everything healthy as the Gold beat the purple 20-6 at Jack Miller Stadium/Fred Martinelli Field in the 11th annual Purple and Gold scrimmage held Friday evening. The Gold got on the board first at 2:28 of the first quarter as quarterback Travis Tarnowski(7 of 16, 77 yards 1 TD) found receiver Dan Piko (6 receptions, 66 yards, 1 TD) for a 24 yard touchdown to give the Gold the lead. The Gold team would score again at the 2:28 mark of the second period when quarterback Austin Bruns(6 of 12, 138 yards, 2 TD) hit Kyle Blanchard for a 90 yard touchdown giving the Gold team a two touchdown lead. Bruns would have the Gold team on the board again just before the half throwing a four yard TD strike to Da Juan Glover putting the Gold up 20-0 at halftime. The Purple did get on the board with 7:31 left to play in the third when quarterback Tra'Von Chapman passed 22 yards to Eric Thompkins to close out the evenings scoring making the final 20-6 in favor of the Gold.
