Indians offense explodes in win over James Clemens

MADISON — East Limestone exploded for 59 points Friday as James Clemens struggled to keep pace at Madison City Stadium. The Indians scored at least two touchdowns in every quarter for a 59-42 victory over the 6A, second-year program.

East Limestone scored nearly every time it had the ball and didn’t commit a single turnover in its second win of the season.

The Indians were led by another big week from running back Dhalquille Eichelberger who found the end zone five times on the ground. Eichelberger finished with 21 carries for 76 yards to along with his five rushing scores.

Eichelberger scored on runs of 2, 4 and 20 yards in the first half as East Limestone took a 32 -14 halftime lead. Leading 25-14 with 15 seconds left in the second quarter, Brick Pugh found Nick Walsh in the end zone for a 7-yard touchdown pass to pad the lead entering the break.

It took James Clemens less than a minute to score coming out of halftime when Maceo Booker scored on a 38-yard pass from Heath Burchfield. Booker led the way for the home team with three total touchdowns.

Burchfield completed 21 of 29 pass attempts with four touchdowns and no interceptions.

Pugh finished 8 for 11 with two touchdowns and no interceptions. The junior quarterback’s second touchdown pass put the game out of reach entering the fourth quarter after Burchfield had brought the Jets to within two possessions on a 25-yard touchdown.

Pugh connected with Jordon Gandy from 19 yards out to make the score 45-28 heading in to the final quarter.

East Limestone (2-3, 1-2) hosts Athens next week in a must-win game for both teams in 5A Region 8.
