    Yeah, the date was a symbolic one. You know, Independence Day, and all that.

    Armes’ answer was what he expected – not very well.

    Even though they had three turnovers, the Hawks managed to stay within striking distance before the Eagles pulled away with a pair of scores in the final 10 minutes.
