“It took us a while to get started,” said Colonel head coach Dan Mangum, cit­ing the team’s sloppy start due to the game’s open­ing delay for a thun­der­storm. “We ad­justed, and came out in the sec­ond half and made some good things hap­pen.

“Jor­dan, Tyler and Ma­son run real well in our of­fense,” Mangum added. “Ku­dos to our of fen­sive line. They got off the ball real hard in the sec­ond half. The de­fense did a great job of keep­ing Snow Hill from get­ting any­thing started.”

Snow Hill (0-2) gained early mo­men­tum when the Ea­gles re­cov­ered an open­ing kick­off fum­ble at the Colonel 37. Later, run­ning back Mau­rice Hud­son’s 12-yard run gave Snow Hill a first down at the Colonel 25.

The Ea­gles got no closer as Colonel line­backer Jake Tow­ers stuffed Chris Wa­ters for a 3-yard loss, and then tack­led Ira Baine for no gain on sec­ond down. Snow Hill quar­ter­back Austin Hicks looked to pass on third down but was sacked by Gabriel and John Weiss. On fourth-and-17, Hicks threw an in­ter­cep­tion to Stan­ley.

Two drives later, the Colonel of­fense went on a six-play, 65-yard scorn­ing march. Stan­ley rushed for 8 yards and a first down at the Colonel 48. Gabriel fol­lowed with rushes of 12 and 10 yards on con­sec­u­tive car­ries to move the ball to the Snow Hill 30.

Stan­ley added a 10-yard run, and Gabriel rushed for 5 to set up a sec­ond-and-5 from the 15. Lam­bert capped the drive by tak­ing a counter 15 yards for a first-quar­ter touch­down. Colonel led 6-0 af­ter a bad snap on the ex­tra point.

The Colonels could not mount much more of­fense in the first half. They did have a shot for three points on the last play be­fore the break, but a bad snap nearly put points on the board for the Ea­gles.

Snow Hill de­fen­sive end Jayce Free­man scooped the loose ball and race to­ward the end zone with a con­voy of block­ers. But Colonel’s Ryan Stan­ton made a touch­down­sav­ing tackle to end the half.

The Ea­gles at­tempted a fake punt on the open­ing pos­ses­sion of the third quar­ter, but Colonel fresh­man de­fen­sive tackle Lesly Fleuris­saint dropped Hud­son for a 1-yard loss at the 30-yard line.

Colonel promptly drove in­side the five, and scored on a 3-yard touch­down run by Stan­ley. Lam­bert added a two-point con­ver­sion for a 14-0 lead.

The score sparked four straight Colonel pos­ses­sions with a touch­down. Af­ter a three-and-out by Snow Hill, Stan­ley found the end zone with a 32-yard run on the drive’s first play for a 20-0 lead.

Gabriel got into the scor­ing act with a 26-yard touch­down early in the fourth quar­ter. He added his sec­ond touch­down on the next pos­ses­sion with a 15-yard run for a 33-0 lead.

The Colonels host Wi­comico at 6 p.m. Fri­day. Snow Hill vis­its Arcadia at 7 p.m. the same night.
