Cutter Morning Star did not take the foot off of the accelerator as the Eagles stretched a 21-0 halftime lead into a 36-6 rout of England Friday night at Eagle Field.
England (3-4, 2-2 2A-5) found the end zone late in the game as senior quarterback Mason Brazeal found classmate target Tamarous Dodson on a 27-yard pass for the end zone with just two minutes remaining in the game. The conversion attempt was denied, setting the final.
Just minutes into the opening frame, Eagles running back Keshawn Blevins set the tone early as the junior reeled in a pass for 15 yards from junior quarterback Sam Moore. With 7:57 on the clock, senior Tyler Mace booted the extra point for a 7-0 lead.
Senior Tyrone Harris got caught in the middle of Moore and junior Landon Watson on a 32-yard toss for a score just two minutes before the break, and Mace split the uprights on the PAT, giving the Eagles a 14-0 lead over England going into the second quarter.
Cutter's dynamic offense fueled another scoring drive by Moore as the playmaker capitalized on good field position while nabbing a quick seven yards for a touchdown with 11 seconds on the clock, and the point-after made it 21-0.
Junior Kaden Prather connected with Moore on a 75-yard pass, placing the Eagles at the 1 before Blevins zipped past defenders to make it 29-0 for the Eagles with 7:35 remaining in the half after the conversion.
With less than five minutes remaining in the third, Moore found Watson on a 19-yard target for a touchdown. Mace went for 4 for 4 on PATs for a 36-0 lead entering the final 12 minutes of the game.
