QB Eric Porras’ three TDs power Ferguson past Hialeah Gardens

The Falcons ran for 345 yards and held the host Gladiators to 75 yards total offense in a blowout victory Thursday afternoon.

Quarterback Eric Porras ran for 83 yards and three touchdowns, including two scores in the second quarter, as Ferguson took a 34-0 lead into the half.

The Falcons (3-3) eventually forced a running clock in the fourth quarter after senior tailback Sean Carranza, who finished with a team-high 127 yards on 18 carries, scored on a 5-yard run late in the third quarter.

The Gladiators (0-6) have been shut out in four consecutive games and have lost 25 games in a row dating to the 2010 season.
