The Matthew Riggsbee era began at West Craven Friday night, as the Eagles beat South Brunswick 27-13.

The Eagles hosted South Brunswick and the Cougars got on top first after a grind-it-out drive that included a breakaway run by Cedric Daniels and the score by Damani Johnson. 

West Craven answered with a touchdown pass from QB Demetres Abrahams to a wide open Torrey Jackson. The extra point was blocked to keep the Cougars on top 7-6. On the ensuing drive West Craven blocked a punt and turned into a safety for a 8-6 lead.

West Craven attempted a hail mary with 20 seconds before the half that fell incomplete. After a timeout, Abrahams saw the South Columbus defense backed up to prevent another endzone heave.  He smartly took the snap and sprinted up the middle splitting the defense for a 50 yard TD scamper that gave the Eagles a 14-7 halftime lead. 

They would come out in the second half with even more firepower and gave their new coach a 27-13 victory.
