The Warriors followed with quick touchdown at the 3:39 and at half led 28-7.

Fort Dale’s lone score in the second half came from a 32-yard field goal by Alvarez with 6:50 on the clock.

Lee-Scott would add one more touchdown late in the fourth quarter to seal the game at 42-10.

The duo of Alford and Alvarez would lead the Eagles offensively. Alford passed 22 times, completing 10 for 150 yards. Alvarez snagged five catches for 61 yards.
