FERGUSON UPSETS SOUTHWEST, 42-20 

Sophomore sensation Deondre Henry ran for 151 yards and 2 touchdowns but it wasn't enough as host Ferguson upset the favored Eagles, 42-20. For the third game in a row, there was a delay, this time two lightning delays. The Eagles, now 1-2 like the Falcons, were also hurt by over 100 yards in penalties compared to 20 yards on 4 minor flags against the home team. Ferguson scored two quick touchdowns late in the first quarter to take a 12-0 lead. Southwest needed only 4 plays to answer. Henry ran for 28 yards, Tyler Peña completed two passes to Zak Chaves totaling 17 yards, and Henry ran 20 more yards for the score, making it 12-7 after one period. On the first series after the first delay, the Falcons drove 62 yards, aided by a couple of penalties, to go up 19-7. On the next play from scrimmage, Henry ran it 68 yards for the score, cutting the deficit to 19-14. A field goal with less than a minute left in the quarter made it 22-14 at halftime. Ferguson returned the opening kick of the second half for a TD upping its lead to 29-14. Following an Eagles punt, a Dorian Ramos interception got the ball back. Henry's 23-yard run put the ball at the two, where Peña found Chaves for the score that made it 29-20 midway through the third period. The Falcons scored twice more in the final quarter to put the game out of reach. The Eagles have two short preparations coming up as they play at Braddock Monday afternoon at 3:30pm and Norland Friday night at North Miami Stadium. The game stats are here.
