SUMITON — The Sumiton Christian Eagles played host to the Southeastern Mustangs for homecoming Friday night.

The Eagles (4-5, 3-4) cruised to a 35-0 victory over the first year Mustangs.

Sumiton Christian scored all of its points in the first half of the shortened game.

The Eagles got on the board first as Joseph Thompson scored the first of his two touchdowns on the game from 25 yards out. Trey Collins, who converted all five PAT’s, made it 7-0.

Sumiton Christian would score a minute later as Austin Clark converted a Mustang fumble as he connected with DeMonte Hobbs for a 1-yard score and a 14-0 lead. Four of the five Eagles scoring drives took only 1 play.

After a Mustang three and out, Hobbs would hit pay dirt again, this one on a 55-yard sprint to extend the lead to 21-0 after the PAT.

The final score of the first quarter came on a 59-yard run by Kori Evans, and the Eagles led 28-0 after the opening frame.

The final score of the game came in the second quarter as Thompson found the end zone again on a spectacular 66-yard run. Collins again converted for a 35-0 final.

Thompson led the Eagles with 91 yards and two touchdowns, while Evans and Hobbs had 88 and 55 yards respectively.

The Eagles’ defense held Southeastern to 35 total yards for the game.

Sumiton Christian closes out their season at home next Friday as they entertain the Corner Yellow Jackets.
