Eagles Varsity come up short at home against Topsail

The Screaming Eagles Varsity Football Team fell to 1-3 on the Season after suffering a home loss to Topsail this past Friday Night. The Eagles had a early touchdown called back due to a holding penalty and weren’t able to find the end zone again until the end of the game. Topsail scored 26 unanswered points mainly on rushing yards as the Pirates Devin Williams had almost 200 yards on 20 carries with 2 touchdowns. Topsail started their scoring with a field goal in the 1st quarter, followed by a 47-yard passing toughdown making it 10-0 late in the 1st quarter. Pirates went up 17-0 after Wiliams scored on a 14-yard run late in the 2nd quarter. Williams then scored his 2nd in the 3rd quarter on a long 62-yard run giving Topsail a 24-0 lead. The final points scored by the Pirates were 2-points on a safety in the 4th quarter. Later in the 4th quarter the Eagles Malik Amos busted right through the middle of Topsail’s defensive line and marched 30-yards to the endzone.
The Eagles will be playing in their final non conference game of the season next Friday Night on the road against a tough 2A Fairmont that is 2-2 on their season. Then start Conference play on September 28th when they travel to Greenville Rose High School.
