2A Football Championship Audio - Thatcher 35, Round Valley 12

Nov. 23, 2018 - The top ranked Thatcher Eagles completed the trifecta, winning their third consecutive Arizona 2A football championship by defeating arch-rivals Round Valley, 35-12.

Eagles' quarterback Jack Kortsen was named the Sports Zone Radio Player of the Game after figuring into four of his team's five touchdowns. He scampered for a 47 yard run on Thatcher's first posession to start the scoring, then helped end a Round Valley scoring threat moments later by scooping a fumble and scoring on an 80-plus yard return. 

The Eagles claimed their third straight title and for the second time, defeated the Elks in the championship (2016).
