A strong second half propelled the G.W. Eagles to their first road playoff win in 14 years as they topped Brooke Point, 27-21. The Eagles had only one play of more than four yards in the entire first half---a 53-yard run from David Wilson. In the second half, the Eagles forced a fumble on the BlackHawks' first drive. David Wilson made them pay four plays later. The Eagles defense then forced a Brooke Point punt. This time, it took Wilson only three plays to get into the end zone. But a Brooke Point score with 2:32 remaining appeared to give them a 21-20 lead. That's when the Eagles took to the air. Brooke Point got the ball with 1:38 and moved it downfield. But with 1.5 seconds to go, 21 yards away from paydirt, the Eagles' defense came up big!! On to the Regional Championship!!
