After a weekend off from football the Budweiser Football League featured its first game of 2013 with a runaway game as the Eagles dominated the Islanders 34-12 Saturday at Eagle’s Field in Mangilao.

The Islanders were coming off a big win against the still winless Steelers but the Eagles exploded for 22 first half while shutting out the Islanders. Eagles quarterback Joseph Terlaje hit receiver Reginal Baylor for the teams first score along with the 2-point conversion to get an early lead.

A few possessions later, the Islanders found themselves backed up within their own 20-yard line only to have their punt blocked setting up a QB sneak from Terlaje to go up 16-0.

A mistake filled first half played the biggest factor in the Islanders loss having another punt blocked right before halftime which again resulted in six points for the Eagles. Halfback Xavier Reyes took a handoff for 10 yards and a touchdown to go up 22-0.

Baylor took a reverse handoff 60 yards for a touchdown on the opening drive of the third quarter for the Eagles giving them a 28-0 lead which virtually ended the game. Roosevelt Badgett capped off the Eagles scoring route with a touchdown off a draw play going nearly untouched into the end zone to reach 34 points.

The Islander fan base were given reasons to cheer as running back Jerrick Abisia scored on a 70-yard touchdown run, sprinting past the entire Eagles secondary. Moments later, Santos hit tight end Benjamin Cruz for a 40-yard touchdown pass also getting past the Eagles secondary. The spark was short lived, however, with the Eagles kneeling out the clock a possession later to officially end the game.

The Eagles improve to (3-1) while the Islanders one-game winning streak ends giving them a (1-4) record. The undefeated Raiders will be going at it in a much anticipated rematch against the Angels during Sundays BFL action, January 6th at Eagles field. The Raiders beat the Angels in the BFL season opener behind a big performance by QB Will Williams.
