The Maiden Blue Devils played their second straight game at home to start the season, and they walked away with their second straight blowout win.
The Blue Devils defeated the Fred T. Foard Tigers 58-14 at Maiden on Friday.
Matt Johnson was intercepted on his first pass attempt of the game, and Foardâs Skyler Hollar returned the interception 45 yards for a touchdown and a 7-0 Tigers lead.
While the Trojansâ offense stumbled out of the blocks in their contest at St. Stephens, the teamâs defense kept the visitors in the game the first two quarters.
âWe played good all night long defensively. We were just killing ourselves when we kept giving it to them in the red zone,â said Bandys coach Randy Lowman. âWe had two interceptions, a fumble and a blocked punt.â
One thing can often change the momentum of a football game.
On Friday night at Newton-Conover, a switch at quarterback made the difference. Adonis Hewitt took over for starter Cameron Shuford after three series with a 14-0 deficit.
âCoach put me in, and we were down,â Hewitt said. âI held my head high, and he told me we could win. I just came in and took over.â
