Jajuan Foutch led the first quarter scoring blitz with three touchdowns.

He got his first score on a 58-yard run with 11:41 left in the quarter. His second score came about two minutes later on a 40-yard run, followed by a 17-yard scoring run with 4:26 left in the quarter.

Justin Seagraves capped off the quarter in similar fashion on a 14-yard run with 2:47 left in the opening frame.

The duo provided 14 more points for the Commanders in the second quarter.

Foutch rushed for a 25-yard score with 5:25 remaining in the half and Seagraves followed three minutes later with a 15-yard score to give the Commanders a 41-point shutout lead at halftime.

Grace Baptist’s Cade Tinsley provided the Golden Eagles’ only score of the night with 45 seconds remaining in the third quarter on a 6-yard run.

Foutch totaled 2015 yards on 14 carries for the Commanders as Josh Seagraves also provided 61 yards on seven carries.

Friendship will remain closer to home next Friday, traveling to Madison for a 7 p.m. game at Goodpasture.
