Warriors’ speed is too much for Eagles

By STEVEN MARSH - Sports Editor

RIDGEWAY -- Speed can be clocked with a stopwatch, a radar gun or an odometer.

In the case of Magna Vista's Warriors, it is measured in yards gained and points scored by their offense and yards and points denied by their defense.

At the expense of Piedmont District rival Franklin County, Magna Vista displayed its speed via the big play on offense and its its pursuit to the football on defense in a 55-21 shredding of the Eagles Friday night.

FCHS (1-1 in the Piedmont District, 1-2 overall) scored three touchdowns but they were mere consolation prizes in a game the Eagles trailed 28-7 after the first quarter and 40-14 at intermission.

Magna Vista (1-0 in the Piedmont District, 3-0 overall) accumulated 547 yards of offense -- 332 via the rush and 215 via the pass -- and notched 22 first downs.
