The no. 17-ranked Pleasanton Eagles were back at full strength when they traveled to face the Brooks Academy Bengals on Friday, they just didn’t get to show it for a full four quarters.

The Eagles beat Brooks Academy 50-29 on Friday in a game that was called at halftime due to a power outage and leaks in the gym.

Both were attributed to the line of severe thunderstorms that moved through the area on Friday night.

An attempt to finish the game on Saturday in Pleasanton was offered by Head Coach Ricardo Marquez, but he said Brooks Academy opted to just call the game with Pleasanton dominating the first half.

The Eagles got off to a hot start in the first quarter with three three-pointers by Kameron Parks, eight points by Santiago Arguijo and six points from RJ Marquez, who returned from injury.

Pleasanton led 27-10 after the first quarter.

Arguijo and Parks led the way for Pleasanton with 12 points each. Isaiya Rocha, thanks to a pair of second-quarter three-pointers, had eight.

Pleasanton (21-3, 2-0) faces Gonzales on Jan. 14 and La Vernia on Jan. 17.
