Northeast Guilford(9-3) will be hosting the Eastern Alamance Eagles(11-2) in Round Three of the NCHSAA 3-A football playoffs this Friday night and here’s the word on the EA Eagles from last Friday night in Mebane…..
MEBANE â€” It was the Alexander Dawson show last Friday night at Eastern Alamance.
Dawson did it all for the Eagles as Eastern Alamance defeated visiting Mt. Pleasant 31-13 in the second round of the Class 3-A state playoffs.
Eastern Alamance (11-2) will play in the third round Friday at Northeast Guilford, which defeated South Johnson 42-35.
â€œAt this point in time thereâ€™s eight schools left and weâ€™re glad to be one of them,â€ Eastern Alamance coach John Kirby said.
Dawson was a factor in all three phases of the game, making big plays as a receiver, safety and punt returner.
He had three catches for 102 yards and two touchdowns, and also returned a punt to the Tigersâ€™ 3-yard line to set up another score. On defense, Dawson accounted for a strip and a devastating hit on Mt. Pleasant receiver Jake Heintz that left him on the ground and sent oohs through the crowd.
â€œHe had a banner night on both offense and defense,â€ Kirby said. â€œHeâ€™s a big part of our team and playmakers make plays. Heâ€™s not only a great football player but heâ€™s a great kid too.â€
