ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ7)-- Franklin County still bidding for a first round home game, and the Eagles could help their cause by beating William Fleming on senior night at Fleming.
Early on, the home team gets on the board, Shareef Anderson, barrelling through would be tacklers. He bounces off like a pinball and rumbles to the endzone to give the Colonels the early 7-0 lead.
The Eagles answer. Joshua Luckett looking deep for Garrett Garman and Garman hauls it in. He knows where to go with it, all the way back across the field on the huge play for a touchdown and Franklin County had tied things up.
Luckett was looking for more a few minutes later but this time his pass is picked off by Deaquan Nichols who then returns it back out to near midfield to put the Colonels in business, but they couldn't do anything with the turnover.
Nashon Bonds picked off Luckett late in the half. This one went overtime before the Eagles beat the Colonels 21 to 14.
