ELDORADO -- Johnston City had its season end Friday night with a 46-14 loss to Eldorado at Boz Adams Field.

Eldorado (7-2) racked up 322 yards on offense, 204 of which came on the ground, while holding the Indians to just 95 yards and two scores that came after a running-clock situation in the third quarter.

Dawson Metten had two first quarter scores, one from 1-yard out and another from 11-yards out as the Eagles took a quick 16-0 lead.

Aiden Whitlock threw for 118 yards and two touchdowns for Eldorado, hooking up with Jeremy Bolds on a 58-yard strike for a second quarter score and another in the third quarter, finding Joe Mayberry for a 20-yard completion.

Boulds added an 80-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the fourth and Jace Jenkins scored from 19 yards out in the first quarter to round out the Eagles' scoring.

Johnston City got a fourth quarter touchdown run from Dylan Fischer from 2 yards out, while Dalton Frick tacked on the two-point conversion. Later in the fourth, Mason Bruce scored from 3 yards out.

Fischer, a senior, also surpassed the 1,000-yard mark for his career in the game.

In his first season replacing Dan Mings as head coach, Todd Thomas went 2-7 at Johnston City and assessed his first year, noting the good and the bad.

"We had our ups and downs," Thomas said. "The kids fought all year long. We came out, we battled, we were in every game except this one. It's something to build on and we just have to get into the weight room and develop not only physically but mentally.

"We came in (Friday) pretty shorthanded with both running backs out," Thomas added. "Fischer carried the load for us, got some yards late. He got his 1,000 yards so that's a pretty good accomplishment. (Eldorado is) pretty good. They're rolling into the playoffs and they are firing on all cylinders, so best of luck to them. Eldorado has a good program. We just have to get into the weight room and try to get things going."
