September 21, 2022
Coming into their conference battle in Milledgeville Wednesday night, the Missiles had to be considered the favorite. They stood at 7-4, while Eastland was only 5-5, and Milledgeville was also undefeated in the NUIC South while Eastland stood at 1-2.

The Cougars didn't just win, they dominated 25-17, 25-8.
