H.S. FOOTBALL: Eagles roll past Lincoln County, 49-14

RICHMOND — The Madison Southern Eagles finished their regular season with a 49-14 trouncing of Lincoln County in Stanford Friday.

The Eagles wracked up 536 yards of total offense.

Southern continued to diversify its offense with eight players carrying the ball as the Eagles rushed for 377 yards and five touchdowns, while quarterback Aaron Slone was 11-of-14 through the air for another 159 yards and a touchdown.

As usual, sophomore Damien Harris did most of the damage with 191 yards and three touchdowns on eight carries for a 23.88 yard per carry average.

But as was the case last week, Harris had plenty of help in the backfield.

Senior Casey Dionne had two touchdowns, while junior J.D. Dean added one touchdown.

The Eagles jumped out to a 28-0 halftime lead and never looked back.

Harris had first half touchdown runs of 18,13 and 70 yards, while Dionne scampered six yards for another score.

With the win, the Eagles move to 8-1 on the season, the best record by a Madison Southern football team since the 2002 Eagles won their first eight games on their way to a 10-2 record.

Southern finishes in second place in District 7, one game behind Pulaski County.

The Eagles have a week off before hosting a first-round playoff game Nov. 1 against a yet to be determined opponent.
