Conway Christian slammed Two Rivers with both barrels of their double-barreled running attack and coasted to a 42-8 victory over the Gators on Friday night at Mission Field.
Adam Ragland scored on a 50-yard run on fourth-and-2, and Bates Isom added a 57-yard scoring run on the Eagles’ first two possessions leading to a 28-point first quarter in the mercy-rule game.
Kirby Powell scored on a 21-yard sweep and Ragland scored from 3 yards out as CCS took a 28-0 lead with 53 seconds left in the first quarter.
After the Gators gained a safety on a high snap on a punt, Jackson Wilson swept for a 53-yard touchdown to give the Eagles a 36-2 lead with 1:37 left in the half.
Isom kept the CCS scoring on the Eagles’ first possession of the second half on a 30-yard run.
Two Rivers’ only touchdown came in the final minute against the CCS substitutes.
The victory put the Eagles (3-1) 2-0 in 5-2A. Two Rivers fell to 1-3, 1-1.
"Sometimes getting to 36 points before halftime worries me because we had 36 points on them like that last year and barely won (36-24)," CCS coach Chuck Speer said. "But we took care of business the second half. We had no turnovers, which made me real happy and we played better defense the second half."
Isom rushed for 209 yards on 14 carries. Ragland added 74 yards on nine carries. Wilson had 64 yards on five carries.
The Eagles amassed 455 yards on total offense while holding the Gators to 103, -7 rushing.
The victory netted $1,800 for the CCS athletic program. Centennial Bank donated $300 to the school’s athletic program for every touchdown.
The Eagles continue conference play next week at Mountain Pine.
