Friday, September 14, 2012

The EPC Warriors shined on both sides of the ball this past Monday night as they hosted the Lions of Manila and posted a 46-0 victory. The game was moved to Monday due to the storms that came through Friday night.

The game resumed with EPC up 7-0. Trevor McDaniel scored on a four-yard run in the opening quarter and Blake Carter added the point after. The quarter ended with the score still 7-0.

Aaron Scales scored on a one-yard keeper with 9:15 left in the second quarter with Carter again making the point after to put the score at 14-0. Tristan McDaniel caught a 15-yard pass from Aaron Scales for the Warriors next points. Carter was again good on the extra point to make the score 21-0 EPC with 5:01 left before half. Caleb Harston scooped up a fumble and returned it 60-yards for a score with 41 seconds to go before halftime. Carter adds the extra point to send EPC to the half with a 28-0 lead.

Aaron Scales hooked up with his brother Byron Scales for a 23-yard touchdown pass with 6:20 left in the third. Carter's point after was blocked leaving the score 34-0. Byron Scales added his second touchdown of the game with a nine-yard run with 1:44 left in the third. The extra-point was again blocked setting the score at 40-0.
