Falkner plays spoiler to Alcorn Central homecoming with 12-6 win

Falkner went on the road and played spoiler for Alcorn Central’s homecoming on Friday night.

A few of the Eagles opponents might see the same result, as Falkner is playing 3 of their 5 opponents on the road as their homecoming matchup.


The Road Warrior Eagles triumphed over the Golden Bears of Central 12-6 to move to 2-0 on the road this season and 2-1 overall.


Falkner put up nearly 400 yards of offense but were only able to get in the endzone twice, once on a Kane Floyd 2 yard plunge in the 2nd quarter and once on a Chris Nunley 25 yard reception from Gavin Wooley.

Wooley would command the offense all night, completing 9 of 10 passes for 145 yards.
