Early in the second quarter the Eagles added to their lead on another run by White. They failed on the twopoint try, but were in front 14-0.
It was the Heritage defense that scored for them next as they got a safety on Covenant. That pushed the lead to 16-0. Heritage tried to move the ball down the field but couldn't get continued from page

In the third quarter with nine minutes on the clock, the Eagles were in the end zone again as Dylan Green went in for the score. White added the two-point conversion to give VHA a 24-0 lead.
Later in the third quarter, the Eagles were on the board again with a big run by Dalton Price. They added the twopoint conversion on a run by White to go up, 32-0, on the Rams.
