Beaufort Academy’s SCISA 8-man title defense got off to a rough start Friday.

The Eagles lost 50-22 at Clarendon Hall in their season-opener after quickly falling behind 20-0.

Elijah Fess’ 30-yard touchdown run and Dawson Coleman’s touchdown run and two-point conversion pass to William Tumlin pulled the Eagles within 20-14, but the Saints answered before halftime to make it 28-14 at the break.

Clarendon Hall reeled off 22 consecutive points to start the second half, extending its lead to 50-14 before Fess broke a 65-yard TD run and caught the two-point conversion pass from Coleman to cap the scoring.
