FOOTBALL: Eagles fall to 0-3

CAMBRIDGE SPRINGS – Youngsville’s rough season continued on Friday night, as the Eagles fell to region-foe Cambridge Springs, 59-6, at Baird Field.

The Eagles (0-3, 0-2 in Region 2) have been outscored 140-12 in their three games this season.

After the Eagles received the opening kickoff and went three-and-out, the Blue Devils scored on their first drive. On the third play from scrimmage, running back Colton Noble broke free for a 33-yard touchdown. The Eagles fumbled the ensuing kickoff, leading to a 16-yard touchdown run from Cambridge quarterback Devin Walker. Walker would score two more touchdowns in the quarter, on runs of 40 and 57 yards.

The Blue Devils didn’t slow down in the second quarter, as Noble added two more rushing touchdowns and Zach Stafford also added one, making the score 46-0 at halftime.

Walker and Blue Devils backup quarterback Stevie Reisenauer each added a rushing touchdown in the third.

Youngsville finished with negative yardage in the first half, and was unable to notch a first down until the third quarter.

The Eagles offense was able to put a strong drive together in the fourth as quarterback Jake Lauffenburger had two longs runs, and Kris Wilcox has a 20-yard run of his own, before Lauffenburger plowed into the end zone from six yards out.

Lauffenburger finished with 61 yards on the ground. Wilcox finished with 30 yards on eight carries.

The Blue Devils pounded out 397 rushing yards, with all nine of their touchdowns coming on the ground.

“That’s the team to beat in our region,” Eagles coach John Victor said. “They do everything well. We didn’t quit. We kept fighting, and kept scrapping. We’ve got to stay positive and keep working. (The players) understand that they’re a young team. We need to use this as experience and keep getting better.”

Youngsville will host another region opponent in Maplewood next week.
