Heritage Makes Comeback
It was a comeback for the Eagles of Vidalia Heritage Academy’s football team last Friday night on the road in Roopville against the Stallions of Holy Ground Baptist Academy. In the first half of the game the Eagles fell behind and were trailing 22-8 at halftime. By the three-minute mark of the third quarter, though, Heritage had closed the gap to 28-22. They tied the game at 28-28 with less than a minute left in the third quarter.
In the fourth quarter of the game both teams battled but with just a few seconds still on the clock the Eagles went in for a touchdown and picked up the win, 42-36 over the Stallions.
Heritage is now 2-0 on the year. This week they will take on Baker County on the road in Newton with kickoff at 7:30 p.m.
