Halftime Thoughts From OLSM-GR Christian

- The Eaglets are sticking with what they do best, and that's running behind the two-headed monster of Grant Niemiec and Parker McInnis on offense. Both players have rushed for over 100 yards in the first half alone.

- Drake Harris has truly set himself apart from the rest of the field as one of the best receivers in state history. Harris set the single season record for receiving yards and now is just one touchdown catch away from the single season record in that category.

- Everyone knows about the prolific Grand Rapids Christian offense, but the Eaglets need to find a way to somehow slow down the passing attack. Whether it's putting pressure on GRC quarterback Alex VanDeVusse or double covering Harris.

- VanDeVusse hurting OLSM in more ways than one, especially after his 47 yard touchdown run to put GRC ahead 20-7.

- Senior quarterback Matt Linehan came up with two very impressive throws in the second scoring drive of the game for the Eaglets. The first to Niemiec for a first down and then a 33 yard catch and run to Van Jefferson to bring the Eaglets back into the game.

- If Linehan can continue to find success through the air for the Eaglets, it would open up the rushing attack even more for Niemiec and McInnis, which might be too much to handle.

- The blocked field goal at the end of the first half could turn out to be a killer for OLSM. Had a chance to cut it down to a three point game, but luckily it's still a one possession game for the Eaglets.

- The Eaglets need to take advantage of the fact that they're getting the ball to start the second half. A score would really change the outlook of this game going forward.
