Maize High rallied in the fourth quarter Friday to defeat Campus 29-10.

The Eagles struggled offensively in the first three quarters and trailed 3-0. The lone score was Cole Segraves’ 54-yard field goal.

But the Eagles turned it on in the fourth quarter, scoring four touchdowns. 

“Our offense was off the first three quarters but finally we came back and found what was open and ran the ball,” junior running back Daeshaun Carter said. 

Carter had 13 rushing attempts for 113 yards and two touchdowns. 

“Our offense was off to begin with,” Carter said. “But finally we came back and found what was open and ran the ball.”  

Junior Justin Stephens had seven receptions and for 67 yards.  

“In between the third and fourth quarter, we realized we are better conditioned than they are and we just wore them out,” he said. 

Stephens said the Eagles have to make adjustments before Friday’s game at Newton. 

“Both sides of the ball need to work hard every week in order to get stronger, faster and smarter,” he said.
