YONCALLA — The Yoncalla Eagles scored four touchdowns in the opening quarter and went on to hand the Falls City Mountaineers a 46-14 nonleague football loss on Friday in the season opener for both teams.

Brandon Wigzell carried the ball 11 times for 161 yards and four touchdowns for Yoncalla. Jordan Aguilar had 179 yards on 15 carries, including a 65-yard scoring run in the first quarter. Aguilar also caught a TD pass.

"It was a good start," Yoncalla coach Matt Bragg said. "We still have a lot to work on, but the kids did a good job."

The Eagles will host Triad on Sept. 14 in a nonleague contest.
