”1ST & GOAL” Inaugural broadcast on megasportsnews.com: Eastmoor Academy shows they may not be rebuilding in Week 1 rout of Franklin Heights, 46-19

FRANKLIN HEIGHTS GOLDEN FALCONS AT EASTMOOR ACADEMY WARRIORS FRIDAY NIGHT

ARCHIE GRIFFIN FIELD

INAUGURAL GAME FOR megasportsnews.com‘s ”1ST & GOAL”

46-19 Eastmoor

PREGAME NOTES

A surprising score since last year’s game was closely played and won 26-20 by Franklin Heights.

Both teams have talent, but only return 3 starters each on each side of the ball

Eastmoor has a lot more depth, speed and is more talented

Both teams made the playoffs last year

FRANKLIN HEIGHTS was 10-2, 4-1 in the OCC Capital Division finishing 2nd to 5-0 New Albany

EASTMOOR was 8-3, 7-0 in the City League South Divison

Eastmoor averaged 36.6 ppg and looks like they will do it again.

Franklin Heights will play at Harvest Prep this week and host Arch-rival Briggs in Week 3. The two schools are on 1.5 miles or 4 minutes away from each other. Briggs is on Briggs Road which dead ends into Demorest Road and Franklin Heights High School.

Eastmoor will be on the road for the next 4 weeks. At Lima Senior next week, Westerville Central in Week 3, At South in the City League opener in Week 4.

GAME OVERALL

Eastmoor going 6 deep at running back and gaining 315 yards was too much for the Falcons. Savon Edwards Jr. our MEGA PAWN SHOP PLAYER OF THE GAME, ran for 145 yards on 17 carries and 3 touchdowns.

The Falcons’ Cody Little, who plays QB and is a KR, ran for 98 yards and 2 scores, one was an electrifying 78-yard TD dash down the left sideline that had the entire crowd in ARCHIE GRIFFIN STADIUM applauding.

Little’s teammate, Jacob Slark, had a great game at WR, making 4 catches for 125 yards.

Eastmoor put the game away with 22 points in the 2nd quarter for a 28-7 halftime advantage.

Eastmoor has a junior-laden team with 22 Juniors. There are only 5 Seniors.

1ST QUARTER

The Falcons won the toss and deferred. They tried to take advantage of being on the road and Eastmoor’s inexperienced team by squib kicking the opening kickoff. It almost worked. The ball road around a bit before the Warriors finally corraled it. I know head coach James Miranda breathed a sigh of relief on that.

He started an inexperienced but a senior in LH QB Alex Ushry. He and backup Marquise Laster are both good and bring different skills to the table. Ushry has leadership and intelligence. Laster has the arm and is a better runner.

Ushry proved the coach right has he marched the Warriors down the field and they scored on a 27-yard reception to WR Napoleon Harris. But it was negated by a holding penalty. So on the drive, the Warriors moved the ball with ease but stopped itself with 2 holds and a QB sack and got no points.

After holding the Falcons to 3 and out, the Warriors got down to business!

They took advantage of a 32 yard punt with Edwards running back the return 27 yards to start the second drive from the FH 26. From there they got an 18 yard run from Micah Coleman and a 4-yard TD run by Edwards and it was 6-0. PAT was blocked.

2ND QUARTER

This is the quarter where Eastmoor blew the game open!

On their third drive, the Warriors used a 20-yard reception from Kenneth Lawrence and a 45 yard TD run by Edwards with a 2-point conversion from Coleman and it was 14-0.

The rout was on!

Roshawn Harper intercepted a Falcons pass and returned it 5-yards from the 20 to the 15. From there in one play, Edwards scored on a 15-yard run, Ke’von Guice connected on the PAT for a 21-0 Warriors lead.

The Warriors were still not through!

After getting the ball back with 8:10 to go in the quarter, Harris made a 53-yard catch and run. Then Coleman scored from the 12, Guice made the PAT for a 28-0 lead. The stadium was in shock!

The Falcons finally put points on the board as Cody Little ran through the middle of the Eastmoor defense for a 15-yard TD, Jeromy Romans connected on the PAT. EA28 FH 7 Halftime.

3RD QUARTER

Franklin Heights gets the ball first and goes 2 plays, 78 yards and scores in 54 seconds as Little out races the Eastmoor secondary down the left sideline for a TD. Romans PAT no good. EA 28 FH 13.

Eastmoor came back and answered that when they got the ball back. Harris caught a pass in the middle of the field and ran in for a 34-13 lead as the PAT was wide left.

4TH QUARTER

There were 3 scores in this quarter.

For the Warriors, Lawrence took a swing pass and went down the left side line for a score and it was 40-13.

RB Cameron Long made it 46-13 with a 31 yard scamper for the Warriors.

The final score of the game was by Falcons QB Dave Fenice, who ran in from 5 yards out to give us the final of 46-19.
