H.S. FOOTBALL: Eagles move to 5-0 with 48-7 win over district rival South Laurel

RICHMOND — The Madison Southern Eagles (5-0) remained perfect on the season with a 48-7 road win Friday over South Laurel in the district opener for both teams.

Southern scored early and often against the Cardinals, putting five touchdowns on the board in the first half — two other TDs were called back by holding penalties.

The Eagles needed only one play from scrimmage, a 30-yard run by Damien Harris, to take a quick 7-0 lead.

Harris put the Eagles up 13-0 with 11:06 to go in the first half with a 13-yard touchdown run.

The Eagles got a 39-yard touchdown run from Aaron Sipple, a 13-yard fumble return touchdown by Jonathan Lamb and a 67-yard touchdown pass from Aaron Sloan to Austin Beetlestone in the second quarter. Harris made it 41-0  with a 46-yard touchdown run just before the half.

Harris rounded out the scoring with a 4-yard scamper on the Eagles’ opening possession of the second half.

South Laurel got a late touchdown on a quarterback sneak by quarterback Matt Harp.

On the night, Harris had nine carries for 122 yards and four touchdowns.

“We played well tonight, we really did,” Southern Coach Jon Clark said. “In the second half we tried to do some different things and let some younger players play, but every time we ran the ball it was 40-60 yards a run and with the running clock we just didn’t have the chance.”

Coming off a bye week last week, Clark said he was really pleased with the play of his defense. The Eagles defensive line forced three Cardinals turnovers on three consecutive plays during the game to set the tone.

Southern will host Southwestern next Friday at 7:30 p.m.
