Homecoming win makes Eagles 5-0

Eagles John Kersey (22) and Randon Williams apply pressure to bring down this People’s Baptist Academy defender.  

With their 56-8 Homecoming win over People’s Baptist Academy of McDonough on Friday, the Eagles of David Emanuel Academy are now 5-0 on the season.

The Eagles drew first blood on a one-yard touchdown run by Jesse Moore. The TD was capped by a successful two-point conversion when Banks Booth connected with Rylie Rowland to make the score 8-0.

It was Racyn Faircloth who reached the end zone next for the Eagles on a five-yard run. The two-point try was unsuccessful, and DEA led 14-0.

People’s Baptist scored next to move the scoreboard to 14-8 before Moore returned to the end zone, this time on a 41-yard run. Booth connected with Faircloth for the two-point attempt to make the score 22-8.

The Eagles added six more when Moore reached paydirt on a 21-yard run. The two-point conversion was unsuccessful and the scoreboard showed DEA in the lead, 28-8.

Moore made a fourth visit to the end zone on a four-yard run. Again Booth connected with Faircloth for the two-point try, and the scoreboard read DEA 36, PBA 8.

Faircloth scored his second touchdown of the night on a 21-yard run. Although the two-point attempt was unsuccessful, the Eagles now had a runaway lead, 42-8.

DEA was not finished, however, as Faircloth made a third visit to the end zone, this time on an 11-yard run, making the score 48-8.

The Eagles’ final TD of the night came when Riley Griner reached paydirt on a 1- yard run to make      the score 54-8 before he tacked on the two-point conversion to make the final score 56-8.

The win culminated a week of Homecoming festivities at DEA.
