The Eagles didn’t stop there. With just 51 seconds before halftime, defensive back Jerrell Williamson intercepted a pass for 85 yards and scored a touchdown. The Eagles led the first half 14-3.

The Skyhawks tried to come back in the second half. With 8:39 remaining in the fourth quarter, running back and wide receiver Nadir Mitchell scored a touchdown on a 10-yard pass from quarterback Mitchell Gossett. But the play wasn’t enough to put the Skyhawks on top.
