The Porter’s Chapel Academy football team bounced back hard from last week’s loss by crushing Ben Ford’s Christian 52-6 on Friday.

“I thought we played well, we got back to doing what we had done the first 3 weeks and controlled the line of scrimmage,” head coach Blake Purvis said. “Our guys played hard and competed for four quarters.”

Taking the snaps at quarterback, Jace Riggs was effective in the air by throwing three touchdowns on 211 yards and also rushing for another touchdown. Willie Rogers, Thomas Azlin and Tyler Washington all caught touchdown passes from Riggs.

Washington led the game on the ground by picking up 101 rushing yards. His longest run was a 60 yard touchdown in the first quarter. Rogers also had a rushing touchdown, while Azlin had the longest touchdown of the night that went for 72 yards.

PCA’s offense continued to pose problems for Ben Ford. The game went into halftime with PCA leading 38-6.

Defensively, John Wyatt Massey and Jase Jung took care of thing by catching a pair of interceptions a piece with Gage Palmer racking up seven tackles. Bridges Williams and Tyler Washington both had a sack in the win as well.

The Eagles are now 3-2 on the season and will be back home on Friday to host Wilkinson County Christian.
