Fullback Eli Sleeth and the rest of the Tyrone offense rolled over visiting Bellefonte on Friday at Grey Field

The Golden Eagles had no trouble putting up points on Friday at Grey Field, dominating Bellefonte 47-7.

Junior Tyrone tailback Aleic Hunter had another monster game.

Great intensity out on the field. We just have a lot of fun out there each game”

— RB Aleic Hunter

Hunter began the game with an electrifying 88 yard return of the opening kickoff.

He then amassed over 150 yards more of total offense and two rushing touchdowns on only thirteen touches.

“Great intensity out on the field,” commented A. Hunter, “we just have a lot of fun out there each game.”

Quarterback Garrett Hunter also showed off his marksmanship, completing twelve of sixteen passes for one hundred sixty four yards and two passing touchdowns.

Fullback Eli Sleeth performed at a high level on both sides of the ball. He recorded seven carries for thirty four yards and a score, not to mention an impressive forty four yard touchdown pass on a screen pass by Hunter.

Sleeth also held his own on defense, adding an interception along with several tackles.

Defensive back Cameron Bakhsheshe also added an interception right before halftime.

The  Red Raiders were held to a dismal 120 yards of total offense.

The Golden Eagles were able to put up a jaw dropping 387 total yards in comparison.  This was with Tyrone playing the junior varsity team in the second half because of their 27-0 lead at the break.

Tyrone sports an impressive 5-0 undefeated record going in to their next game on the road against Bald Eagle Area.
