Leading 7-0 early in the second half, Fred T. Foardâs defense defined itself in the Tigersâ conference contest at St. Stephens.
With the Indians punting from their own end zone, Foardâs Tanner Fleming knew the game was on the line.
âI gave it all I had. I knew it was important. I knew it was a big play to make,â Fleming said of a play where he blocked a Zach Bryant punt that was recovered by Sam Benfield in the end zone for a Foard touchdown.
âIt felt like a dream,â he continued. âWe are not a team that wins often, but right there, it clinched the victory.â
You could say Matt Johnson had the âMidas Touchâ on Friday.
The senior quarterback, ran for three touchdowns on three runs in Fridayâs game, making his last regular-season home game at Maiden High School a memorable one.Â
Johnson, along with teammate Will Jenkins, helped the Blue Devils pull ahead 27-0 in the first half and never looked back, earning a 48-7 conference victory over the visiting East Burke Cavaliers.
