Eagles run wild on Cats

Hunter Rogers 5 touchdowns
FRONT ROYAL, VA-  The Clarke County Eagles showed no signs of letting up in their recent tear against opponents as they throttled the Warren County Wildcats 56-7 on Friday.

"It was a  good game ." Eagles coach Chris Parker said, "We got everybody in, we won and I think as a team we got better. That was our goal to win and get better."

Clarke County (7-2, 4-1) scored on every possession in the first half with Hunter Rogers finding pay dirt 5 times. Rogers rushed for 180 yards on 7 carries and scored 4 touchdowns rushing with runs of 51, 80, 18, and 5. Rogers was also on the receiving end of a 35 yard touchdown  pass from Chris Davis.

"We played great." Rogers said, "The offensive line blocked well obviously, and our defense gave us great field position. We need to play like this every week."

Rogers sat out the entire second half and needs just 70 yards to pass Bo Morgan as Clarke County's all time career leading rusher.

"I'm really proud of him [Rogers], he's worked hard." Parker said. "I'm not sure how many yards he got tonight but he will most likely break the record next week on senior night."

Eagles quarterback Chris Davis was 3 for 3 passing for 58 yards including the 35 yard touchdown to Rogers.
Robert "Bo" Morgan  Eagles all time leading rusher 4,246 yds.
Davis also rushed 8 times for 74 yards including a 2 yard touchdown run.

The Eagles also got scores from Daniel Braithwaite and Patrick Cleary. Braithwaite on a 31 yard rumble and Cleary scampered for 21 yards.  

Clarkes line once again controlled both sides of the ball giving up only one score in the game yielding only 35 yards rushing and gaining over 400 on the ground.

"We knew they were going to stack the box and we were going to go toe to toe with them." Eagles center and co captain Josh Wallace said, "We are hitting our stride right now, we have to just keep going and winning out." 

Warren County (2-7, 1-5) scored in the first quarter when quarterback  Cam Ford connected with Benjamin Vogt on a 57 yard touchdown.

Clarke will clinch at least a tie for the Bull Run District if they defeat Madison County this weekend. Central was defeated 7-0 by the Strasburg Rams creating a three way tie for first between, Clarke, Central, and Strasburg.

Kickoff is set for 7:30PM at Wilbur M. Feltner Stadium, in Berryville. This will be the Eagles final regular season game and it is Senior night.

"There's something special about Senior night." Parker said, "We have a great group of seniors that have worked very hard and very close not only to each other but the coaches. It's a special night and I'm sure we will play hard."
