EAGLES OVERPOWER VARELA, 37-0

Fanelle Andrus threw for two touchdowns to lead the Eagles to a 37-0 rout of Varela on the Southwest campus. The Eagles (5-2, 3-0) broke a scoreless tie on the first play of the second quarter when Deondre Henry ran it in from 26 yards out. The Jonathan Campos extra point made it 7-0. Chris Brice set up the score with a 44-yard scamper on the previous play. After a three-and-out, Nick Watson returned the punt to the Varela 13. Southwest then had touchdowns called back on three consecutive plays before turning the ball over on a fumble at the Vipers 8. Varela (0-7, 0-3) then snapped the ball through the end zone for a safety, making the score 9-0. Edwin Allen, who had 97 yards rushing in the first half on just six carries, had consecutive runs of 20 and 21 yards to set up a 19-yard touchdown run by Brice to up the margin to 15-0. On the Vipers second play following the kickoff, Savion Collins recovered a fumble at midfield and, on the next play, Watson made a spectacular one-handed grab of an Andrus throw for a 50-yard scoring play. Another three-and-out for the Eagles defense was ruined by a roughing-the-passer penalty but Michael Salvatore recovered a too-short pitch to give the ball back to the offense. Again, it resulted in a 1-play scoring drive when Andrus found Jason Baker for a 39-yard connection to make it 28-0 at the half. Henry's 50-yard run in the third period upped the lead to 35-0 and the mercy rule kicked in as the remainder of the game was played with a running clock. Nick Vega tackled the Varela QB in the end zone for a safety on the final play of the game to make the final 37-0.
