ACS tight end Austin Greene scored a touchdown in the first 10 minutes of the game.
ACS allowed the Eagles only one touchdown, and never gave the South Carolina team an opportunity to catch up. At halftime, the Lions held a commanding lead with a score of 21-0.
"It's not our goal to score 50 points in every game," said Lions head coach Bruce Lane. "We want to play well enough to win."
Lane said his reaction to winning this game was similar to his reaction to winning the first two games of the 2004 season. Though the Lions have been unstoppable in their first two games, he said he still sees room for improvement.
"We have some work to do in eliminating mistakes," Lane said.
He made the same comment after ACS defeated Colleton Prep 49-14 in their season opener Aug. 19.
Lane said that as his team faces stiffer competition, making fewer errors will become increasingly important.
But he is pleased that some of his younger players, including safety Tyler Bourdo, have been able to play, which has allowed his starters to rest.
The Lions will leave the friendly confines of Pride Valley for the first time this season when they travel to St. Matthews, S.C., Friday night to play the Calhoun Academy Cavaliers.
