Brayden Smith looks for a path around a Coastal defender.

David Emanuel Academy picked up their fourth win of the season when they defeated Coastal on Friday in Stillmore.

It was Jesse Moore who scored first for the Eagles, reaching the end zone on a 4-yard run. The two-point attempt was unsuccessful and the Eagles led 6-0.

Coastal responded and tied things up at 6 before Dane Arrington scored for the Eagles on a 6-yard run. Again, the conversion attempt was unsuccessful and DEA led 12-6.

The Eagles expanded that lead when Rylie Rowland recovered a fumble and sprinted 24 yards for the touchdown. Again, the two-point try was unsuccessful and the Eagles led 18-6.

Another Coastal touchdown moved the score to 18-12 before Brayden Smith hit paydirt on a 1-yard run. Banks Booth passed to Rowland for the conversion to make the score 26-12. 

Moore then returned to the end zone on a 3-yard run. After the two-point try failed, the score stood at 32-12.

Booth connected with Moore on a 48-yard pass for another touchdown, which was followed up by Timothy Braddock’s two-yard run for the conversion to give the Eagles a 44-12 lead.

Booth connected next with Brayden Smith for a two-point attempt to advance the score to 46-12.

Moore reached the end zone again, this time on a 41-yard run to make the score 52-18 before Booth connected with Racyn Faircloth for the conversion to make the score 54-18.

An Eagle safety, which occurred when John Kersey blocked a punt, made the final score 56-18.

Both Randon Williams and Riley Griner had interceptions in the win.

The Eagles have an open week this week and will host People’s Baptist Academy on Oct. 2.
