Arlington started the scoring in the second half on a 26-yard passing TD from Anthony Whitis that gave the Eagles a 22-14 lead at the end of the third quarter. Stanwood scored a TD but failed on a two-point conversion in the final quarter. Nutter’s interception ended Stanwood’s last drive. Arlington’s record improved to 3-4.
