Beaufort High was unable to secure Bryce Lybrand’s first win as a head coach Friday, falling 37-21 at A.C. Flora.
The Eagles put themselves in an early hole with two fumbles and trailed 21-0 early in the second quarter.
After a lengthy lightning delay, James Dagin got the Eagles on the board with a 2-yard touchdown run, and he added a 95-yard kickoff return touchdown to pull Beaufort within 24-14 in the third quarter.
Tyler Haley threw a 35-yard touchdown pass to Eddie Warren, and Kendrick Williams had two interceptions on defense for the Eagles.
“I’m proud of the way our kids fought,” Lybrand said. “They played really hard.”
Beaufort (0-1) hosts Battery Creek (0-1) next Friday.
