MONTGOMERY, Ala. - Faulkner (3-2) defeated Webber International 48-21 in its first Mid-South Conference Sun Division matchup of the season at Billy D. Hilyer Stadium this afternoon. The victory also marked the program's 50th overall.
Faulkner rolled the Warriors in the first 30 minutes of play, taking a 34-0 lead into the locker room at the break.
The second half was a bit more even, but the Eagles' giant lead proved too much for Webber to overcome.
Nicholas was 16-for-26 with 374 yards, with four touchdowns and two interceptions on the day.
Jacob McCrary led the Eagle receiving corps with 168 yards and two touchdowns on two catches, one for 91 yards and the other for 77 yards.
Joe Jones' 12-yard touchdown was Faulkner's only rushing score of the outing. He finished the contest with 21 yards.
"You can't win a conference championship until you win that first game," head coach Charlie Boren said. "There are a lot of things we need to work on if we want to be a serious contender, but we're really happy to get that first win."
Faulkner's next game will be against Ave Maria at Billy D. Hilyer Stadium on October 7. Kickoff is set for 4 p.m.
