Clarke County (4-2, 2-1) jumped out to a 21-0 first quarter lead and never looked back.

"It was a great win, a big win." Eagles coach Chris Parker said, "We wanted to come out and make a statement, and I thought our guys really responded well. We came out with a lot of enthusiasm and played aggressively."

Daniel Braithwaite scored on a 5 yard run and Nick Bahamonde added a 25 yard field goal and 7 extra points to round out the Eagles scoring.

"I feel great about Nick Bahamonde, he has been a pleasant surprise."Parker said, "I thought his kickoffs were outstanding and you add the icing on the cake with ten points on the field goal and extra points that's just great."

Strasburg (4-2, 2-1) scored twice when quarterback Ethan Duckworth (13 of 26 for 169 yards, 2 Td, 2int) hit Brody Tomlin 26 yards and Grant Scott 13 yards for touchdowns.
