Worth the wait for ELHS

From staff reports

The Eagle's Landing Golden Eagles waited a week to open their season.

For Eagle's Landing head coach Bob Stinchcomb's team, it was worth it.

The Golden Eagles took a 15-0 lead at the half, and then held off a rally attempt by Spencer en route to a 22-16 win.

Quarterback Marcus Williams scored on touchdown runs of 6 and 16 yards and also connected with Johnny Thompson on a 38-yard TD pass en route to the win.

Spencer cut the margin to 15-14 with two TD runs in the second half. An intentional safety from Eagle's Landing's Alex Paquette gave Spencer its last two points of the game.

n Jonesboro 21, Fayette County 6: The Jonesboro Cardinals are still unbeaten (1-0-1).

After tying Mundy's Mill in the season opener last week, Jonesboro went on the road Friday night and beat Fayette County 21-6.

Patrick Saxby kicked field goals of 35 and 38 yards and Brandon Lucas and Kenny Hester scored touchdowns to pace the win.

Jerome Davis added an 2-point conversion.

Fayette County is coached by former Jonesboro and Riverdale head coach Tommy Webb.
