EAST CHICAGO | The Bowman Eagles kept the score close for most of Friday night’s matchup against the E.C. Central Cardinals, but the Eagles had troubles moving the ball in the loss.

Bowman trailed by eight at the end of the third quarter, but E.C. Central scored 20 in the fourth to finish off its 34-6 win over the Eagles.

Cardinals running back Anthony Hunt had another strong outing, running for nearly 150 yards and scoring three times. He could have had another touchdown run, but it was negated by a holding call.

Friday was Hunt’s second consecutive game of running for more than 100 yards.

Martayveus Carter handled the other scoring for the Cardinals. He crossed the goal line on a 4-yard-run in the fourth quarter. He scored again late in the game on a 73-yard fumble return.

In addition to creating the turnover, the Cardinals defense has held its opponents to six points in its last two games.

Bowman’s lone scoring drive came in the second quarter following a bad snap on an E.C. Central punt.

The Eagles recovered the ball on E.C. Central’s 35. Eagles quarterback Deshawn Franklin followed up by hitting Izaiah Cole for a 32-yard pass. Two plays later, James Taylor scored on a one-yard run.

Franklin suffered an injury in the third quarter, and was able to slowly walk off the field on his own. Franklin had connected on 10 of his 14 passes at that point for 79 yards.

He briefly returned later, but he didn’t finish the game. Henry Taylor and Michael Hubbard each took snaps under center following Franklin’s departure.
