The Fred T. Foard Tigersâ roaring start on offense ended up being too much for the N. Lincoln Knights from just across the border Friday night.
The Tigers defeated the Knights 25-6 on Friday, marking the teamâs first win since Oct. 23, 2009.
The Tigers starting running back was the key to the teamâs strong offense in the first half. The 190-pound Tre Robinson overpowered the Knights smaller defensive backs in the first quarter and lived up to expectations in a big way â rushing for 102 yards and three touchdowns in the first quarter alone.
After playing to a 0-0 halftime tie, Bandys turned to a âfireplugâ to fuel their offensive attack.
On the heels of a three-touchdown night by junior tailback Devan Davis, the Trojans scored four second half-touchdowns to secure a 28-7 win over St. Stephens.
âHeâs a great runner,â Bandys coach Randy Lowman said of Davis. âWe have three great tailbacks. Young started the game, but he plays defense for us full-time. So we have Tewon Smith, and Davis is the little fireplug in the bunch that goes north and south, which is what you want when you go under center.â
A broken wishbone usually means good luck, but in Maidenâs football game Friday against Lincolnton, it was anything, but favorable.
The Blue Devils (0-1) racked up 179 rushing yards in the implemented wishbone offense, but only 43 of those were tallied in the second half. Maiden lost its opener to Lincolnton, 35-10.
Quarterback Matt Johnson was held to 2-of-8 passing for 10 yards. His most viable contribution to the team was the running game, where he rushed 15 times for 89 yards.
