Eagles get first win over Parrott

Published 3:06 pm Monday, October 6, 2008

LASKER-Prior to last night there were three schools Northeast Academy had never beaten in eight man football.

Now there are two.

The Eagles rushed for 472 yards as they notched their first ever win over

Parrott Academy, a 49-6 victory. Senior Brandon Futrell led the Eagles

with 215 yards on 31 carries and one touchdown. Classmate Hunter Deloatch scored five touchdowns while rushing for 182 yards on 14 carries.

Northeast moved 44 yards in six plays, capped off by Deloatch’s six yard run for the Eagles’ first score. Futrell carried in the conversion for an 8-0 Northeast lead.

After forcing Parrott to punt the Eagles drove down to the 26 yard line.

A fumble was recovered by Parrott and the visitors took advantage. Russ Flythe tackled Thomas Smarsh for a loss but on their next play Josh Reason caught Patrick Dubose’s 88 yard pass for the touchdown. Northeast stopped the conversion run to preserve an 8-6 lead.

It didn’t take long for the Eagles to extend that lead as a reception by Arch Harrell moved the ball to Parrott’s twenty yard line. Deloatch, under center, covered the distance for the score. Harrell was stopped just short of the goal line on the conversion run but Northeast extended their lead, 14-6.

Josh Rose recovered a Parrott fumble to set Northeast up on their own 45 yard line. Futrell and Deloatch shared running duties on the possession, moving the ball to Parrott’s three yard line. Quarterback Davis Harrell ran the final three yards for the score and carried in the conversion for a 22-6 Northeast lead at the half.

The Eagles received the opening kickoff and three plays later Futrell ran

16 yards for the score. The conversion run was stopped, leaving Northeast with a 22 point advantage.

Parrott tried to get their offense going, gaining a first down on an eleven yard run. Three plays later Rose sacked Dubose in the backfield and they punted the ball away to the Northeast 24.

It took 11 plays, including a 46 yard run by Deloatch, for the Eagles to find the end zone again. Deloatch’s three yard scoring run, combined with Zach Mize’s two-point conversion catch gave Northeast a 36-6 lead.

Deloatch found the end zone twice more on runs of nine and 14 yards. A conversion run failed but D. Harrell kicked the extra point after the Eagles’ final touchdown to give Northeast a 49-6 win.

Northeast travels to Hobgood Academy next Friday night before hosting Lawrence Academy on October 17.
