The skinny: After stomping on Bellefonte and Philipsburg-Osceola to start the season, Bald Eagle Area finally took a punch when it fell behind Penns Valley last week.

However, the Eagles fought back, staved off an upset and took a 47-19 decision.

This week, the Eagles travel to Chestnut Ridge (1-2).

Penns Valley stole momentum early by recovering two onside kicks, and actually led 19-7 before BEA ran away.

Running back Dakota Bartley finished with 152 yards and three touchdown runs on 20 carries.

Quarterback Jason Jones went 9-for-10 for 102 yards.

Running back Beau Bosch leads the Lions’ offense, which is coming off a 41-7 drubbing to Berks Catholic.
