HUBBARD – With star running back LJ Scott on the sidelines in street clothes and a cast on his left thumb, Hubbard continued to roll, beating John Marshall 59-6.
Scott, who broke his left thumb during last Friday’s game against Girard, tells WKBN that his cast should come off Monday and he is expected to play next week against Howland.
Tonight, the Eagles took a 3-0 lead following a Vlassios Pazanias 35 yard field goal.
Later in the 1st quarter, Eagle quarterback Brenna Wassil connected with Darnell Tate on a 23 yard touchdown pass to give the Eagles a 10 point lead.

Wassil would then call his own number later in the quarter, as he punched it in from two yards out to stretch the lead to 18-0.
Hubbard would strike again in the first half, this time on George Hill’s one yard touchdown carry.
But, the offense was not done, as Wassil and Tate would connect again before the half, this time from 45 yards out to give the Eagles a commanding lead.
Tate would finish the game with 6 carries for 113 yards and one touchdown.
Wassil completed 8 of his 11 passes for 176 yards and three touchdowns.
Hubbard improves to 3-0 on the season.
