Junior running back Jonathan Tucker score four times as the Heritage Eagles defeated San Antonio FEAST’s (Family Educators Alliance of South Texas) junior varsity squad by a 45-0 margin at Friday’s “Flight Night” festivities.
Heritage’s original opponent, San Antonio New Life, was forced to forfeit the game due to a lack of players.
The game was ended under the “45-point” mercy rule when Tucker carried the ball across the goal line from the Patriots’ 16.
The Eagles (3-0, 7-3) will take a break from their schedule this Friday night, waiting for their season finale at home against Selma Believers on Nov. 7. That contest kicks off at 7:30 p.m.
Heritage 45, SA FEAST JV 0
A stingy Eagle defense allowed FEAST only 73 yards of total offense, with 57 of those coming on 29 rushing plays. Heritage also recovered three of the Patriots’ five fumbles.
