FAIRFAX — Host Fairfax rumbled to a 38-6 victory over the Mount Abraham-Vergennes football team on Saturday in an interdivisional matchup. The Division III Bullets improved to 5-3, while the D-II Eagles wrap up their season at 1-7.

The bright spot for the Eagles proved to be the 57 rushing yards on 16 attempts for senior back Kevin Pearsall. Although that did not approach the 200-plus yards he rambled for the week before, that total was good enough to give him 1,037 for the fall. Pearsall became the program’s first 1,000-yard rusher in a number of seasons.
