By East Alabama Sports Today

Donoho moved a step closer to hosting a first-round playoff game Friday night with a 45-18 rout of Talladega County Central.

Rod Elston scored three first-half touchdowns and Hall Billings accounted for two more scores with a pass to Blake Steed and a run as the Falcons (5-2) improved to 3-1 in Class 1A Region 5. They hold a half-game lead over Winterboro and a game and a half lead over Winterboro – two teams they have beaten earlier this season.

Yash Patel kicked a 21-yard field goal and Will Nelson had a 1-yard run late for Donoho’s other scores.

The Falcons jumped out from 21-0 in the first quarter and led 30-2 at halftime. They have scored more than 40 points in each of their last two games.
