Eagles defeat Lewis in hard-fought
grid-iron contest

In their first home game, the Eagles went to 2-1 with a 20-14 win over the Lewis County Minutemen. With a balanced attack, Braxton ended the game with 333 yards offense, 182 on the ground and 151 in the air. Lewis’ total of 226 yards included 219 in rushing.
Leading the Eagles’ rushing, Seth Arnold picked up 176 yards on 26 carries. He scored twice. Quarterback Heath Cottrill completed 11 of 21 pass attempts for 151 yards, including a 10-yard throw to Tayton Stout for a score.
For Lewis, Jacob White gained 174 yards on 22 carries. White scored both of the Minutemen’s TDs.
After a scoreless first quarter, Lewis got on the scoreboard first early in the second. Starting on their own 40, the Minutemen moved into Braxton territory only to find themselves back across the 50 on a holding penalty. Then came White’s 52-yard run for the touchdown. Jared Griffith’s PAT kick was good.
The Eagles answered quickly. Starting at the 34, Braxton took the ball to the Lewis 10 in three plays. From there, Cottrill found Stout for six points. A pass to Aiden Watson for the two-point conversion gave the Eagles a one-point lead midway through the second.
Late in the half, Braxton mounted a drive which took them from their own 20 to Lewis’ 16. From there, Arnold scored. Braxton led 14-7 at halftime.
Both teams scored their final TDs in the third quarter. Arnold drove into the end zone from the five for six points near the nine-minute mark of the third. The conversion attempt failed. The Minutemen’s final points came on a six-yard run by White and Griffith’s successful kick.
