Hope followed it’s 88-point debut this season with back-to-back 14-point performances, but in week six of the regular season, the Eagles got back to their offensive ways in a 92-50 win over Lyman Ward.

Peyton Long had a nice night defensively picking up seven tackles, an interception and a fumble recovery. The Eagles combined to get five interceptions and a fumble recovery on the night.

Jackson Davis picked up 231 yards rushing with two touchdowns, while adding an additional 100 yards passing and four more touchdowns. Ethan Key also added 108 more yards on the ground and two additional touchdowns.

Hope is now 2-3 this season, but followed up its region loss to Evangel last week with a region win this week to move to 1-1 in region play with several winnable games still in front of them.

Coosa Valley fell to 1-5 this season after a tough 42-6 loss to Pickens Academy on the road on Sept. 22. It marked the fourth game of six this year that the Rebels have given up 40-plust points defensively.
