The Eagles scored offensive touchdowns of 41 yards, 58 yards, 93 yards, and 21 yards in the 41-10 victory. Senior wide receiver Jarrod Denham touched the ball three times and scored three touchdowns (41-yard TD reception, 93-yard TD run, and 14-yard TD run) in the win.

"I have always thought, if you have to pick between speed and strength, certainly you like to have them both, but when in doubt I would say bet on the fast guys," said Bridgewater head coach Michael Clark. "I am comfortable that we do have guys that can run."

The explosive Eagles finished the game with 428 yards of total offense and led 41-3 before a late touchdown was scored by the Bullets.
