November 6, 2011By Calvin Walters of Eastern Alamance High School
It's been a struggle at times this year, but when Eastern Alamance Eneeded it most, the offense came through big time. The Eagles scored 7 touchdowns Saturday afternoon, five through the air, en route to a 49-19 victory over South Johnston.
It was the most productive effort of the season for the Eagles, who will host Williams next week in a rematch of the Eagles 17-14 victory a week ago.
Aaron Clay caught two touchdowns and Ali Lamot, Malik Wilson, Zack Littell all added one touchdown reception apiece. Chad Wilson supplied the other two Eagle touchdowns on the ground, from 10 and 3 yards out repsectivley.
Quarterback Robbie Lanier turned in a masterful perfomance thorugh the air and on the ground with several successfull runs on the afternoon. The senior's five touchdown passes set a new school record for touchdown passes in a game.
The Eagles defense held strong containing a team that came in averaging over 42 points per game. The only blip was a hail mary touchdown as time expired in the first half making the halftime score 21-7 in favor of the Eagles.
South Johnston threatened pulling within 28-19, but never got within one score as the Eagles pulled away to advance to the second round.
