Scott scored from 10 and 15 yards out to make it 14-0 Eagles in the 2nd quarter.

At the 4:28 mark in the 2nd quarter, a power outage caused the lights on the visitors side of Struthers Stadium to go, as well as the scoreboard temporarily.  There was a delay of over an hour before the teams returned to the field.

Once the lights came back on, Scott broke a 46 yard touchdown run for his third score of the first half, giving Hubbard a 21-0 lead.

Just before halftime, Struthers got on the board when Gary Muntean threw a 23 yard touchdown pass to Dalton Moore, making it 21-7 Hubbard lead at intermission.  Muntean finished 7-12 for 114 yards and a touchdown.  Moore had two catches for 67 yards and that score.

In the third quarter, a big run by Scott set up a one yard touchdown plunge by quarterback Brennan Wassil, pushing Hubbards lead to 28-7.

Vlassios Pizanias added a field goal to give the Eagles their final points, winning 31-7.

LJ Scott finishes with 175 yards rushing on 16 carries and three touchdowns.  George Hill also ran for 88 yards on 16 carries.

Hubbard improves to 5-0 while Struthers falls to 4-1.
