South Rob gets 1st win under Jernigan

First Posted: 8/29/2014

FAYETTEVILLE — The South Robeson built on its streak of holding opponents scoreless to six quarters and took down Trinity Christian 30-0 on the road Friday night.

The Mustangs (1-1) moved away from their normal running style early on in the game, as senior quarterback Kalvis Chavis scored the first two touchdowns of the game on passing plays to the endzone on his way to three total touchdowns in the game.

Head coach Clay Jernigan said he was happy with the win his team was able to get, but is still looking for more consitency.

“I thought we needed that game for a confidence builder, but I thought we could have played a lot better,” Jernigan said.

The Mustangs only scored once in the second half and Jernigan said part of that was the result of problems holding onto the ball in the red zone. South Robeson fumbled three times and lost all three.

“We played well at times,” Jernigan said. “We have to practice better during the week. That’s the one thing we really have to work on.”

Overall, Jernigan said he was happy with the performance, although there are still a lot of things left to teach the kids, including building on the excitement they have during the game.

“We are having to teach them how to celebrate,” he said. “There was no fire in them and that’s one thing that we are going to have to teach.”

St. Pauls gets 1st win

SOUTHPORT — St. Pauls got points from both its offense and its defense Friday night and needed every one of them in a 28-27 win at South Brunswick. The Bulldogs (1-1) scored four touchdowns and Tim Billinger forced a safety to hold on despite a late comeback try.

Quarterback Cody McKenna had more than 200 all-purpose yards, running for 89 and passing for 103 on 10 completions.

The Bulldogs went up 13-7 after the first quarter, getting a 29-yard touchdown run by Charles Spears and a 26-yard run from McKenna. Trey Johnson built the lead to 20-14 by halftime.

After the break, Billinger forced a safety and McKenna scored again on a 19-yard run to give a last bit of insurance.

Spears was St. Pauls’ secondary attack on the ground, running for 77 yards on three carries and caught four passes for 22 yards. Johnson had 49 yards on fives rushes and Billinger had four catches for 45 yards.

Scotland edges out Jack Britt

LAURINBURG — After cruising to an one-sided win last week at South View, Friday night’s affair at the Boneyard was anything but easy for Scotland as they held on to defeat Jack Britt 20-14 in Fayetteville Friday night.

As good as the Fighting Scots looked last week, the team was bound to come back down to earth. But they also came crash landed in the fourth quarter after a string of mishaps nearly cost the team the victory.

Scotland struck first, as junior quarterback Dashaun Ferguson continued his stellar play from last week and connected with junior wideout Willie Douglas for a 34-yard touchdown pass with 4:42 left in the first quarter. Ferguson performed a good pump fake that caused the corner to hesitate just enough for Douglas to break free and stride in for a score. But it was the last time the Scots would score in the first half, as the Jack Britt defense bottled up Ferguson, tailback Quadrin Williams and the rest of the offense.

The Scots’ defense picked up their play as a result, and the Buccaneers had trouble moving the ball themselves. Jack Britt was able to get into field goal range just before halftime, but kicker Atilla Kurt missed the 31-yard attempt and Scotland was able to preserve their 7-0 lead going into the half.

Things didn’t start off well for Richmond as Marlboro opened the scoring midway through the first quarter when London Johnson found Tabari Hines in the right corner of the end zone for a 20-yard reception.
