Beaufort High opened the DeVonte Holloman era with a comeback victory, beating visiting A.C. Flora 35-14 on Friday.
James Dagin had a huge game for the Eagles, scoring a pair of rushing touchdowns and catching a 53-yard TD pass.
The Eagles trailed 14-7 at halftime before Jeffrey Smyth hit tight end William Winburn for a touchdown to tie it early in the third. Dagin’s first touchdown run put Beaufort ahead, but the Falcons returned the ensuing kickoff for a touchdown to knot it at 21.
Beaufort blocked a potential go-ahead field goal attempt, and Peyton Langford returned it for the go-ahead score, and Dagin capped the scoring with a 29-yard TD run.
Beaufort (1-0) travels to Battery Creek next Friday.
