FALKNER - The Falkner Eagles broke a 17-game losing streak in front of a Homecoming night crowd on Friday, as they defeated Thrasher 54-0 to get in the win column.
The Eagles struck first with a Chris Nunley rushing touchdown early in the first quarter, along with a Kane Floyd two-point attempt to go up 8-0 early. Gavin Wooley scored another rushing touchdown near the goal-line, and another good two-point try put the score to 16-0.
