1 min read

The Beaufort Academy football team played well during their first home game of the season on Friday, September 2, despite a final score of WW King 48 and BA, 34.  This was also the first game on the newly renovated Merritt Field, a project that took numerous donations and nearly the entire summer. Beaufort Academy had 290 yards of offense by halftime and only trailed 28-22, but the visitors pulled away in the third quarter of the SCISAA 8-man contest.
Quarterback Gibson Achurch had a huge night, going 13 for 14 passing for 259 yards and two touchdowns. Jack Griffith had seven receptions for 161 yards and a TD. He also had two TDs rushing. Billy Dailey and Ray Aiello added TDs for Beaufort Academy (0-3), which also got a two-point conversion from Tucker Trask.
Griffith led the defense with 12 tackles, and Dailey added 10. Adam Chahin had six stops and a fumble recovery for the Eagles, who host Jefferson Davis on Friday.
