RABUN GAP — The Rabun Gap-Nacoochee football team's pass rush harassed Cabarrus (N.C.) throughout the night, keeping the home team out of the end zone in a 43-3 win in Concord, N.C., last Friday.
The Eagles' defense finished with 18 tackles for loss, including 20 hurries and three sacks, while allowing just 208 yards of total offense in a fourth straight win.
"It was good to see our defensive front being disruptive and getting to the ball carrier," Eagles coach Shawn Bryson said. "We were able to stop the run earlier. We were able to start fast on offense as well. Getting some of our injured players healthy on our defensive line was key also."
Niklas Kahrau led the Eagles' defense with nine tackles (six solo), including three for losses. He caused the Warriors to fumble once and hurried quarterback Michael Dickens seven times. Lior Volkov made seven tackles, Victor Omorodion had six tackles, Paul Steidl finished with five stops and Alperen Aras added five tackles for losses.
