The Wakulla War Eagles are still in the running for State Champions after shutting out Jacksonville's Ed White 19-0 in last night's Class 4A regional semifinal game.
The War Eagles were ahead at the half due to several Ed White fumbles. The first fumble situation ended with a pass from Wakulla quarterback Casey Eddinger (Senior) to Mikal Cromartie (Sophomore) for a 51-yard touchdown run. The kick by War Eagle Conner Smith (Junior) was good, making the score 7-0 Wakulla.
The second Ed White fumble occurred just before the first half ended. The Commanders fumbled the ball as they crossed their goal line. The ball was picked up by another Ed White player in the end zone, but the Commanders touchdown was ruled out on a technicality.
