FRANKLIN COUNTY, Va (WDBJ7) -- Franklin County played its much anticipated home opener at Cy Dillon Stadium where EC Glass came a calling Friday night.
The Eagles in a 7 point hole at the break.
They try to surprise the Hilltoppers with the onsides kick to start the third quarter but that doesn't work out as Glass recovers with good field position.
The Toppers' Thomas Patterson then turns in the hard earned 15 yard run up the middle and Glass had something cooking.
It worked once so they go right back to it. This one is an 18 yard touchdown run from Patterson, and EC Glass was on top 28-14.
Franklin County coming right back though. Caleb Smith downfield to Shawn Manns. That's good for a 53 yard pitch and catch and it was a 7 point game again at 28-21.
E.C. Glass puts things on ice though. Matt Maccallum looking for Trevelle Alexander and he's got him. He won't go down until he picks up 20 big yards.
Two plays later, Ty'quarius Foster goes in from three yards out and Glass went on to win it 45 to 21.
