Eberhart said things went as planned.
"It sounds strange to play Hoover in a first game," said Eberhart, who praised the efforts of wide receiver Mike Davis, quarterback Evan Norton and running back Alex Yoon. "A lot of people came and they saw an exciting game.
"Hoover played very hard and we played real hard. We want to try to create some more excitement and things worked out well for us."
The teams will next meet Nov. 10 in a Pacific League game.
LONG SEASON AFTER JUST TWO WEEKS
Things haven't gone as planned for Glendale Community College during the first couple of weeks. The Vaqueros dropped nonconference road games against Pasadena City College on Sept. 3 and Golden West on Saturday and will play their first home contest at 7 p.m. Saturday against East L.A. College at Sartoris Field.
"We went into the season looking to rebuild and we didn't have a large group of freshmen last year," Glendale college Coach John Rome said. "Against PCC, we found out we couldn't tackle well and they had five one-play drives and we had some turnovers.
"We did see some improvement [later in the game]. We ran and threw the ball for more than 200 yards. Against Golden West, we couldn't run or throw well and we still didn't tackle."
CLUB WELCOMES NEW MEMBER
The Glendale YMCA Quarterback Club welcomed its newest addition Tuesday, as Village Christian became a member. It marked the first time that the club added a new school since 2007, when St. Francis became a member.
The Crusaders will have a representative from their team/school and will join Glendale college and Crescenta Valley, Hoover, Glendale and St. Francis highs throughout the season at the meetings.
