Late score stuns Faulkner at home

Faulkner falls in heartbreaker

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The Faulkner Eagles led 31-26 when the Webber International Warriors took the field with 48 seconds left in the game. That all changed in four plays as the final scored ended up 34-21 in favor of Webber.

On 1st and 10 from the Webber 48, Webber quarterback Brycen Lee and Davonte Williams connected on the biggest play of the game. Lee found Williams down the seam, and Williams was able to break a tackle and take it the rest of the way to complete a 52-yard touchdown pass-and-catch.

The Warriors would go for the two-point conversion to make it a three-point game and would convert, making the score 34-31 Webber.

With 18 seconds remaining, Faulkner now looked to pull off magic of its own, but would come up short, falling to 2-3 on the season and 0-2 in conference play. Webber improved to 3-2 and 2-0 in conference play.

The Eagles defense would relinquish 22 points in the game’s final quarter after entering with a 24-12 lead. They were in control for three of the four quarters, including holding Webber scoreless in the third quarter.

Faulkner quarterback threw three touchdown passes en route to a 22-for-32, 260-yard day. The Eagles gained 196 yards on the ground led by Charles Blackmon’s 110 yards.

On the other side, Lee threw for a monster 381 yards with three touchdown passes of his own. The Eagles forced three interceptions out of the Warriors quarterback, but all that matters is his third touchdown pass of the game that gave the Warriors a 32-31 lead.

Williams was the main recipient of Lee’s passes. He caught 13 passes for 213 yards and caught two of Lee’s three touchdown passes.

The Eagles have a shorter week coming up as they’re on the road Friday to take on Warner. That game kicks at 4 p.m.
