"We had the game and we let them back in," Eagles coach Chris Parker said. "It was a tough agonizing loss."

Handley (3-0) did not take long to strike back scoring just two plays and 40 seconds later when Malachi Imoh rambled 77 yards breaking several tackles along the way. The PAT failed and Clarke held a slim 7-6 lead.

Imoh went in for his second score and ran in the two point conversion to give Handley their first lead with 2:37 to go in the quarter.

Clarke then played their best ball of the game, starting a drive a the end of the quarter that culminated with a 1 yard Rutherford plunge. The Eagles scored three times in the second period holding Handley scoreless to take the momentum and a 28-14 lead into the locker room.

"We started off strong in the game in the first two quarters," Rutherford said. "We were killing them, and they just came out in the second half and beat us.

The Eagles defense was able to stuff the middle of the line forcing a couple turnovers, enabling Kyle Baylor to score from 12 yards and Rutherford added his third score a 5 yard run with 30 seconds to go in the half. For the second time in two games this season the Eagles scored just prior to the half ending and went in with the game momentum.

It was all Handley after that. The Judges scored four unanswered touchdowns with quarterback Jacob Parker throwing 4 touchdowns in the second half, 3 in the fourth quarter.

D1 prospect Kevin Curry had three of those touchdown receptions and D'Andre James had one.

"I talked to the team, I didn't sugar coat it," Parker said. "It was tough, gut wrenching loss. We did some good things, and we need to correct some things."

Parker also went on to tell his team after the game that with an 0-2 start, the team's true character would be tested and they can start on making things right as they travel to Waynesboro next Friday.

Quarterback Colby Childs was 4 for 7 passing for 27 yards and added 23 yards rushing, summed things up for the team this way.

"We've just got to forgot about this game and keep practicing like we have been," Childs said. "We've just got to have each other's backs. If we do that the whole game, we'll win."

Kick off at Waynesboro is set for 7:00 PM
