WESTMORELAND — Friendship Christian scored on its first offensive play and held Westmoreland in the closing seconds of a 7-7 tie in jamboree action Friday night.

After holding the Eagles to a three-and-out to start the action, the Commanders’ big-play offense struck as Austin Taylor got outside for a 60-yard touchdown run. Jonathan Luck’s kick made it 7-0.

Friendship’s offense never threatened the rest of the evening.

Westmoreland scored on an 8-yard run with around three minutes left.

Friendship went for it on fourth and 2 but came up short.

Commander cornerback Steven Hollis broke up a long Jake Perry pass to help preserve the tie.

Earlier, Friendship’s middle school shut out Westmoreland 6-0 as Ernie Gallatin scored on an early 60-yard run.

FCS’ junior-varsity then rolled 18-0 as Ben Jamison scored on runs of 70 and 60 yards, sandwiched around Caleb Farris’ 30-yard touchdown pass to Chad Holcombe.
