Southwestern drops to 0-7 after 44-6 beating by Eagles

Berea — Battered, bruised and shorthanded, the Southwestern High School football team had no answers for Damien Harris and the Madison Southern High School Eagles. The Warriors dropped to 0-7 on the season after being downed 44-6 on the road.

Harris, who has already committed to Michigan University,  rushed for 290 yards and scored four touchdowns.

For the night, Madison Southern totaled 344 yards rushing to Southwestern’s meager 76 yards on the ground.

But even more costly for the Warriors were their 5 turnovers, which included four fumbles and a pass interception.

Harris scored all three of Madison Southern’s first quarter scores on touchdown runs of 39 yards, 56 yards and 10 yards.

The Warriors’ lone score came early in the game off a Skylar Stigall 83-yard touchdown, which at the time tied the game at 6-6.

Eagles QB Aaron Sloan connected with Devate Linville on a 12-yard pass play to put Madison Southern up 27-6 at the half.

Sloan and Linville connected again for a 16-yard TD pass play in the third quarter, and Harris scored his fourth touchdown of the night on a 35-yard run, ending the third quarter at 41-6.

Madison Southern’s Garrison Watts tacked on a 22-yard field goal in the fourth quarter to put the final count to 44-6.

For the Warriors, senior back Logan Campisano rushed for 68 yards on 19 carries.

Freshman quarterback Bandon Pruitt passed 8-of-18 for 76 yards with one pick.
