EAGLES PLAY STRONG 1st HALF BEFORE FALLING, 41-0

Southwest played its best half of football of the year before tiring in the second half and falling to Ferguson, 41-0, Saturday night at Tropical Stadium. The Eagles (0-7) and Falcons (5-2) played a scoreless first quarter before a touchdown 88 seconds into the second quarter gave the visitors a 7-0 lead. Southwest had a season-high five first downs, four of them in the first half. With only 22 players dressed and many of them playing both ways, the Eagles tired in the second half and Ferguson dominated the final two quarters. Southwest's best chance to score came in the second quarter when KC Vargas recovered a fumble on the Falcons 26-yard line. After two runs gained three yards, quarterback Tyler Sandino found an open Christian Melguizo for a 19-yard completion to the Ferguson four. Melguizo carried the ball to the one on second down but the Eagles couldn't punch it in and fumbled the ball away on fourth down.
