The Eagles stepped up in the second half by finding their way in the end zone multiple times. Tyler Washington rushed for three touchdowns for 65, 10 and 5 yards.

PCA’s defense managed to make some big plays in the second half by registering seven sacks all-together from Gage Palmer, John Wyatt Massey, Matt Malone, Alex Davis and Bridger Jung.

The Eagles are lead by head coach Blake Purvis who is currently in his sixth season as the leader of the team. PCA will host Tallulah Academy on Friday in the regular season finale.
