Ja’ziel Hart, an eighth-grader who was promoted from Benjamin Franklin Middle School’s squad following the completion of its undefeated season, scored the Eagles’ lone touchdown in in the closing seconds of the contest.

William Fleming led 35-0 with 2:14 left in the third quarter and scored its final TD with 4:06 remaining.

The contest is the Eagles’ final home game of the fall 2021 season.

To date, all three of the Eagles’ setbacks were in games played at Dillon Stadium. In those losses, they were outscored 97-6.
