The undefeated Calera Eagles took care of business last Friday night downing region opponent Marbury 40-13.

The first turnover of the night cane when the Eagles recovered a muffed punt deep in Marbury territory. Two plays later, Dominique Wilson scored his first of five touchdowns on the night.

Marbury had chances to draw closer, but high snaps to the shotgun killed good drives. They fumbled the ball four times in the third quarter alone and lost 63 yards.

The 3A Eagles (4-0, 3-0) will host cross county rivals, the 5A Shelby County Wildcats (3-1,2-1) this coming Friday night
