SEFFNER — A new era began for Brandon. For Armwood, it was the same old story.

The Hawks, who didn’t lose a game on the field last year, spoiled the debut of new Eagles coach Dean Eychner with a 55-0 victory Saturday night.

Armwood rolled to a 41-0 halftime lead. A running clock was used in the fourth quarter.

Senior Alvin Bailey scored three touchdowns, two on passes from quarterback Darryl Richardson (18 and 13 yards) and the other on a scintillating 77-yard run out of the Wildcat formation. Richardson, who added a 16-yard scoring run, guided an offense that piled up 351 yards.

Armwood’s defense forced three turnovers and held Brandon to 72 yards on 33 plays. On 25 rushing attempts (41 yards), the Eagles were held to 1 yard or fewer 12 times. Sophomore linebacker Byron Cowart, a first-year starter, scored his first career touchdown on a 20-yard fumble return. Junior safety Kyle Gibson also returned an interception 15 yards for a score.

“We try to get 11 guys to the ball and that’s what I love about our defense,” Cowart said. “The defense did good and nobody was really tired.”

Brandon didn’t cross midfield until midway through the third quarter following an Armwood personal foul.
