Aggies dismantle East Lawrence Eagles, 42-7


TRINITY – The Fairview Aggies traveled to East Lawrence High School to take on the Eagles Friday night, and they certainly took them on, throwing down a dominating 42-7 win.

Fairview received the ball and took it to East Lawrence early. Fairview running back Ethan Satterfield racked up a quick 48 yards on two runs to take it within the 10-yard line in Eagle territory. The very next play, Grant Howard scored on a 10-yard touchdown run to go up 7 – 0 on East Lawrence with 10:12 remaining in the first quarter.

After a three-and-out for the Eagles, the Aggies were back in business. Fairview raced down the field with three more runs by Satterfield totaling 29 yards and a Dayne Black keeper of 19 yards. The Aggies then scored on an 8-yard touchdown reception by Garret Dunn. Fairview was rolling in the first as the Aggies put up 14 points in the opening frame.

But the Eagles had gained some momentum early in the second quarter with quarterback Hunter Letson racking up 40 yards on one possession for East Lawrence. After a 5-yard run from Eagle running back Jacob Henderson, Letson scored on a 4-yard touchdown run. The Eagles now trailed 14-7 with 9:32 left in the half.

The Aggies were not going to let that drive ruin their night, as 27-yard touchdown run by Ethan Satterfield and a 60-yard touchdown reception by Scoot Bennett silenced the Eagle faithful. Now up 28-7 with 4:04 left in the half, Fairview kicked off the third quarter to the Eagles but a fumble by Timothy Grissom allowed Black to recover and run 32 yards for a touchdown with 11:32 left in the quarter. The Aggies continued to roll, up 35-7 early in the third.

Fairview was not finished yet as a Tyvn Ellis scored on a 25-yard play, putting the Aggies up 42-7 with little time remaining in the third.

The Aggies ultimately won the game 42-7.

Satterfield racked up a total of 118 rushing yards. Black also contributed on the ground with 23 yards rushing. Bennett and Ellis also had big nights, racking up more than 60 yards apiece. Dunn, Mason Black and Howard also contributed heavily.

Aggie linemen Jared Bachelor, Clay Jeffers, Cash Hanson, Levi Garner and Dylan Garner pushed their weight around all night to provide a catalyst for the run game. Fairview's defense had a huge night as well. The Aggies allowed a total of 137 yards.

Fairview will play host to Corner High School next week and will start region play.
