            It didn’t take long for the game to get out of hand in West Fork on Friday night.

            The West Hancock football team marched in there and smacked its opponent in the mouth.

            The Eagles ran amok of the place in a 47-6 victory over the Warhawks.

            The team combined for over 347 total rushing yards in the victory.

            Tate Hagen led the way in an impressive show with 123 yards and four total touchdowns.

            Cole Kelly showed his ability at tailback as well and covered 107 yards on the ground and punching his ticket into the endzone once.

            Quarterback Gavin Becker also connected a 17-yard pass to Caleb Eckels for a touchdown.

            Eckels also had a stellar game on defense recording 7.5 total tackles.

            The Eagles are now building momentum like a locomotive train to the end of the season.

            This week they should be able to handle Graettinger-Terril/Ruthven-Ayrshire, at least on paper anyways.
