Big runs lead Eagles past Golden Bears
West Hancock used the big play in all four of its scores in a 26-12 Class A opening round football playoff win over the Bishop Garrigan Golden Bears in a contest played at Conway Field on Friday, Oct. 27.
The red-and-white hit the home team with five plays that totaled 272 yards as the Eagles rushed the football 45 times for 396 yards on the night to advance to quarter-final round against second-ranked West Sioux.
