Dubbs picked up TD number four minutes later as he scored on yet another 7-yard TD run, making it a 28-0 advantage with still 9:46 showing until the intermission.

Bald Eagle went to the air on its fifth touchdown of the half going to Cam Watkins 3-yard TD pass from Carson Nagle with just 18 ticks left on the clock.

It was a total domination in the first half, as they sent Richland into the half, frustrated and wondering what happened.

In the Third Quarter, the game had gone into the ‘Mercy Rule’ status but the Eagles continued to come out swinging.

Gavin Burns hooked up with Nagle on a 71- TD pass at 8:35.

The Eagles cashed one last score when Nick Wible scored on a 1-yard run with 2:13.
