The Montgomery County Eagles football team rolled to a big 56-15 win over the Panthers of Portal at home on Friday of last week. The Eagles spread the ball around in the running game, but racked up a total of 338 yards in the rushing game.

The Eagles also got to show off their new lighting system that was finished being installed earlier in the week. The Eagles put in all new LED programmable lights and were able to use them for the entrance and after the many touchdown that they scored in the game. They will provide a better setup during football games, for band performances, and for the soccer programs, and everything else that the school holds on Brogdon Field.

Halfway through the first quarter of the game the Eagles were already out to a 7-0 lead over the Panthers. With just over six minutes to go in the first, the Eagles started at their own 26-yard line after a punt from Portal.

Davidson took it to the 24-yard line, and then Rome Thornton put it in from there for a touchdown. Nishawn Wise went in for the two-point conversion to make the score 15-0 with 2:13 left in the first.

Denmark had a solid run all the way to the 5-yard line. Two plays later big Talik Jackson punched through the middle of the line for a touchdown with 8:16 left in the half. They added the extra point by Jackson Cartwright for a 22-0 lead.

On Portal’s next drive Jackson had a sack that ended the Panthers drive and gave the ball to MCHS at the 34-yard line. Samari Madison had a solid run to the 18-yard line, and another run by Davidson made it 1st-and-goal at the 7-yard line. Two plays later a pass from Davidson to Denmark made it 29-0 with 4:26 left in the half.

Portal did move the ball well late in the half as they worked it inside the red zone and to the 9-yard line. The Eagles made a big stop on 4th-and-1, giving MCHS the ball back out at the 15-yard line. The Eagles tried to get in for one more score, making it all the way to the continued from page
