Whale Branch shuts out Garrett Academy, 21-0, in high school football

Visiting Whale Branch Early College High School pulled away to win convincingly in a makeup high school football game, shutting out Garrett Academy 21-0 on Monday, October 27.

A scheduling mixup between the two schools forced the Whale Branch-Garrett Academy football game to be played on Monday instead of this past Friday when it was originally scheduled to be played.

With the win, Whale Branch improved to 5-4 overall and 4-0 in Region 6-AA.

The victory gives Whale Branch at least a share of the regional title.

Whale Branch back Stephon Eugene rushed for all three of the game’s touchdowns. The productive Eugene scored on runs of 12, 1 and 11 yards.

Defensively for Whale Branch, Nyles Pinckney forced a fumble and recovered two fumbles while Treyvon Bryan recovered a fumble and Keani Porter delivered an interception in the fourth quarter.

Whale Branch will host Battery Creek in a regular-season finale on Friday, Oct. 31 at 7:30 p.m. in Beaufort.
