Eagle’s Landing Christian Academy head coach Jonathan Gess and the Chargers started the season with a win over Morrow.

McDONOUGH - Eagle's Landing Christian Academy opened up their season in traditional fashion unique to their program.

A dominating 55-13 victory over Morrow High School came with the program scoring 35 points in the first half against the Mustangs' six. Morrow added another touchdown in the third quarter but ELCA carried on to the 55-13 victory with another 18 points in the final half.

"It went good," ELCA head coach Jonathan Gess said about the game. "Our kids played good but we have to clean up mistakes. We struggled with Morrows athleticism."

In the victory for ELCA Gabe Wright was 16/20 for 230 yads and four passing touchdowns. Wright also carried eight times for 83 yards. Keaton Mitchell was limited to just 13 carries for 145 yards. Devon Dorsey had two receiving touchdowns on the night while Justin Robinson and Trent Hosford each had one.

ELCA hosts Pace Academy at home next Friday while Morrow High travels to face Forest Park High at Tara Stadium.
