TALLAHASSEE, FLA. (franchisesportsonline.net) – After finishing the game on a 27-0 run, the North Florida Christian Eagles defeat the Hamilton County Trojans 34-16. Senior Terrell Powell had a great game rushing for 119 yards and put the game on ice scoring the last two touchdowns in the fourth quarter.
The winless Trojans (0-3) were fighting hard, keeping it close and leading for three fourths of the game. The Trojans were running a triple option the entire game, and running it well, giving the Eagles (3-0) a hard time.
“They hadn’t run it [triple option] one time all year; it’s not on film and they run it well, they got the kids to do it,” head coach of NFC Steve Price said. “It was very important that we play disciplined – and even though we never practiced against it, because they never showed it on film, we still did a nice job of staying disciplined taking care of our gaps, taking care of our responsibilities. I’m really pleased. Our defense played lights out all game.”
