The Eagles put another 17 points in the books through the second stanza and Jones accounted for six of those as East Bladen extended its lead to 34-21 by halftime.

A more defensive third quarter ensued after intermission, but the Eagles still managed to outscore the Spartans by a 10-7 margin and take a 44-28 advantage into the fourth quarter.

East Bladen found its offense once again over the final 8 minutes, putting 19 points on the board while holding Union to just nine to seal the 26-point win.
