EAST PRAIRIE -- A 15-yard touchdown pass to a wide open Mikey Russell gave the East Prairie Eagles a 10-6 win over the visiting Charleston Bluejays on Friday night in yet another benchmark for the history of the 'Battle for Mississippi County.'

Trailing by just three points with just over two-and-a-half minutes left in the game, the Eagles converted on a fourth-and-six to give them their second lead of the night.
