Offensive barrage leads to 42-13 win; Havelock next for Eagles

Eastern Alamance's Lanier Rice (No. 6) makes a leaping grab between multiple Jacksonville Northside defenders during the fourth quarter of Friday night's NCHSAA 3A second round state playoff game. Rice's clutch fourth down catch turned into a 20-yard touchdown, which gave Eastern a 21-7 lead with 11:15 left in the game. Rice caught a pair of touchdown passes from Austin Bryant as the Eagles scored five touchdowns over the game's final 16 minutes. EAHS now travels to Havelock next Friday night for a third round state playoff contest.
