Carson Rourk made 14 tackles on a rain soaked night, but it wasn’t enough as Andrew Jackson (11-0) defeated Palmetto Christian (8-3) 52-0 Friday night.
The Eagles offense struggled to get going all night long, so the defense saw tons of action. Rourk’s 14 tackles were a team high. Colson Gunn had a solid contribution with nine tackles. Kendall Chakeris made eight tackles for the Eagles, while Jamison Howard recorded six tackles.
The Eagles eight victories were the most in program history as they recorded their first playoff victory for the program since 2009.
