Ashton Guest broke up a fourth-down slant pass at the Beaufort Academy 6 with 30 seconds remaining to end one final Cathedral Academy threat and preserve the Eagles' 54-48 shoot-out win in SCISAA eight-man football action in Beaufort.
"They had a guy we couldn't stop, and we had a guy they couldn't stop," Beaufort Academy coach Brock Vaigneur said.
The Generals (2-2) player Vaigneur referenced was Christian Rogers.
"He was a nice little running back, receiver," Vaigneur said. "He did pretty good on defense, too."
Never miss a local story.
The Eagle to whom Vaigneur was referring was senior running back Reyn Robinson, who rushed 30 times for 370 yards, four touchdowns and five two-point conversions.
Quarterback Clay Melville added two touchdowns on offense and 19 tackles on defense.
Beaufort Academy improves to 3-1 overall, 2-0 in region play. The Eagles face Charleston Collegiate on the road next week.
