BERRYVILLE, VA- The Clarke County Eagles returned home on Friday night to celebrate homecoming 2016 and dominated the George Mason Mustangs 49-7 before a standing room crowd at Wilbur M. Feltner Stadium.

Clarke County (5-2, 3-1) got on the board midway through the first quarter when quarterback Chris Davis connected with Brett McDonald for a 53 yard touchdown pass. They never looked back from their putting 49 unanswered points on the board in the first half.

"It was a great game, we were very dominant offensively scoring 7 out of 7 times." Eagles head coach Chris Parker said, "Defensively our starters were 3 and out every time, our special teams were solid and every kid, (55) got to play."

Running back Hunter Rogers paced the Eagles with 123 yards on 14 carries with touchdown runs of 
9 and 6 yards. Daniel Braithwaite added 72 yards and scored twice on a 6 yard scamper diving for the pylon and a 59 yard breakaway run.

"We came out big and put the hammer to the nail." Braithwaite said, "The holes were there, the line definitely did their job and we took advantage of it."

George Mason (2-5, 0-3) was able to fend off a shutout when Dustin Green scored on a 1 yard plunge in the fourth quarter.

The Eagles scoring was capped off with a 5 yard touchdown run by Patrick Cleary and a 48 yard punt return by Kyle Baylor. Baylor headed for the right sideline and then cut back to the middle of the field to go untouched to the endzone.

"I saw all the blocking I had and saw an opening and just hit it." Baylor said.

Mackie Martin and Natalie Lyman were named Homecoming King and Queen in a halftime ceremony.

The Eagles will travel to leesburg next Friday to face the Riverside Rams in a non district game. Kickoff is set for 7:00PM.
