Bees can’t stop Byrd’s offense, lose by 42-12

FAIRMONT — Robert C. Byrd jumped out to an early lead and that was all she wrote, as the Flying Eagles came out out with a 42-12 victory over East Fairmont Friday night at East-West Stadium.

Byrd, who usually tries to pound the ball on the ground, came out of the gate firing on all cylinders.

Ben D’Annunzio, who’d been out most of the year with a broken collarbone, returned for the Flying Eagles and provided a spark early in the game. He gained 21 yards on the ground on four carries and caught three passes for 31 yards in the first half. He would later leave the game in the second quarter, though, and would not return. But the damage was already done.

Byrd quarterback Julian Marino had a bigger role than normal, as he completed nine of 13 passes for 112 yards and two touchdown tosses before exiting the game late to give way to younger guys.

East Fairmont, led by quarterback Jake Delaney, gained only 39 yards in the first half.

Delaney had 47 yards on the ground, but a few negative plays kept the Bees to such a low number.

Delaney would finish with 48 yards on the ground and eight of 16 passing for 47 yards through the air.

East Fairmont would get its first touchdown with 7:35 remaining in the game, when Scotty Shroyer took an option pitch from Delaney 16 yards in for the score.

Shroyer would add another late touchdown and finished with 23 yards on the ground and the two touchdowns. He also caught six passes for 35 yards, pacing the Bees offense.

The Bees fall to 1-5 on the season and will play Preston next week at home.
