The Black Isle Stags started off there HACL campaign with a comprehensive 38-0 victory over the Millburn Academy Eagles at the begginning of the days proceedings. The Stags opened the scoring with a touchdown pass from QB James Maclean to Mickey Stewart on their opening drive. The touchdown was then converted for 2 points when Maclean found Dean Brannen on the end of a 12 yard pass.
The Stags then doubled their lead when Maclean threw a pass down field to RB Lewis Taylor. This touchdown was then converted for 2 more points when Maclean once more found Brannen on the end of a 12 yard pass down field. Black Isle kept the pressure on Millburn and scored once more when Lewis Taylor rushed in for Black Isle’s first rushing TD of the campaign. Unfortunately, for Black Isle, the conversion attempt which followed was successfully defended by Millburn but the Stags were now 22 points ahead of the Eagles.
Black Isle dominated on defense as well as offense and eventually their efforts on defense were rewarded after the Eagles had a loose snap which resulted in Michael Home getting a safety. The Stags then rounded off a successful half when Maclean found Taylor once more to put the Stags 30 points ahead of the Eagles heading into the half time intermission.
The Eagles now fighting for their pride more than anything started to get them selves back into the game in the second half but they were unable to put any points on the board in the second half. Unfortunately, for them, Black Isle still had one touchdown in them and Lewis Taylor ran in for his second rushing touchdown of the day. This was then converted by Maclean who found Taylor in the endzone to leave the score at 38-0 to the Stags.
