Eagle football silences Spaulding, 38-6
BARRE — The Mount Abraham/Vergennes football team spoiled host Spaulding’s first-ever night game this past Friday, routing the winless Tide, 36-6, and improving to 3-1 in the process.
The Eagles scored touchdowns on two of their first three possessions and did not allow Division II Spaulding to record a first down in the first quarter.
Anthony Warner’s 1-yard run and the Eagles’ successful two-point conversion made it 8-0 after the first quarter, and Wyatt Gracie’s 1-yard run at 0:28 of the second quarter and QB Joey Payea’s conversion run made it 16-0.
Later in the period, Ryan Paquin rambled 41 yards for a TD to make it 22-0 at the half.
To open the second half, the Eagles blocked a punt, and Gracie scooped it up and ran 40 yards to make it 28-0. Spaulding then got on the board with a 60-yard march and recovered an onside kick, but the Eagles held to seal the win.
Paquin also returned an interception 19 yards for the final score and caught a two-point conversion throw from Payea. Devon Kimball also picked off a second-half pass for Mount Abe.
The Eagles return home this Saturday, when they host D-III rival Windsor.
