The Eagles used a three-yard touchdown run from junior running back Jackson Beggs with 31 seconds left in the second quarter to take a 6-0 lead into halftime, and then scored on a 74-yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Jon Perrin to senior running back Zach Bunders with 6:38 to play in the third quarter to make it 14-0 after Perrin connected with Bunders on the two-point conversion pass.
Pittsville scored on a 10-yard touchdown run with 11:52 remaining in the fourth quarter to pull within 14-7, but Almond junior Matt Lukas returned the ensuing kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown to give the Eagles a 20-7 lead with 11:38 to go in the fourth quarter.
Beggs added a five-yard touchdown run with 8:09 left and an eight-yard touchdown run with 2:34 to play to close out the scoring on the 34-7 win, as he rushed for 118 yards and three touchdowns on 30 carries in the win.
