Cavaliers shut out Eagles, 53-0

Prince Edward County High School’s varsity football team was not able to avenge last year’s blowout loss to King William High School like it had planned as the 2019 Cavaliers used size on the line to help engineer a 53-0 road victory Friday night. Eagles Head Coach Larry White noted his team turned the ball over six times.

“I was a little disappointed from the way we started off, but overall, the first game, I’m not making excuses, but I have a lot of kids (where) this is their first time ever playing football, and they were a little nervous,” he said. “I’m disappointed and pleased at the same time.”

He said he was pleased with his team’s second-half defense and his players’ overall effort.

The Eagles had 54 yards of total offense. They were led on defense by juniors Kiyou Jones and Davon Manson.
