RICHMOND -- The host Eagles scored 14 points in the second quarter and added a 31-yard field goal in the waning moments to begin the 2014 campaign with a victory.

Senior captain Ernie Timoteo provided much of the offensive punch for Kennedy, carrying the ball 20 times for 127 yards, but the bruising fullback was kept out of the end zone by the Pirates (0-1).

Fullback Jordan Mims scored on two-yard run at the 10:06 mark of the second quarter and the Eagles added another touchdown when Jordan Winfield raced 16 yards with a fumble on a kickoff 12 seconds later.

Kennedy added a safety when Drake quarterback Kevin Miles kicked the ball out of the end zone after a snap sailed way over his head and towards the goal line.

Miles finally got Drake on the board with 3:12 left in the contest when he raced 13 yards and dove into the corner of the end zone. He then added the PAT kick.

Kennedy was stymied by 23 penalties for 185 yards.
