Red Devils Run Over Cavs At Gurley

October 9, 2010

On his first two rushing attempts of the game, Jervasse Herrin scored two touchdowns. The first came on a 63-yard run in the second quarter, and the second was five minutes later on a 12-yard run. That pair of touchdowns provided the spark the Red Devils needed to pull away from East Burke and pull out a 52-14 win at home.

“I just went out and played hard,” Herrin said with a smile after the game. “We just came out, blocked hard and executed.”

Saint Shuts Down Foard

October 9, 2010

After mounting a quick 21-0 lead, St. Stephens was in danger of allowing Fred T. Foard back into the annual cross-county clash between the 3A rivals.

In a deep deficit, the Tigers scored two quick touchdowns and were staging a comeback going into halftime.

Then Indian quarterback Tanner Miller took over.

With 1 minute 30 seconds left in the first half, the Indians got the ball on their own 4-yard line after recovering a Foard fumble that killed a threatening Tiger drive.
Miller then rushed six times for 81 yards to lead the Indians into field goal range.

October 2, 2010

After winning 21 straight games at Gurley Stadium and five straight games in the 2010 season, Newton-Conover found itself in unfamiliar territory early Friday night.

At halftime, the visiting Bandys Trojans led 10-7 over the Red Devils.

“I guess we thought we were going to go out there and walk the dog on them, and that definitely didn’t happen,” said Newton-Conover running back Octavius Harden. “They made us play hard in this game.”

But after trailing at the game’s midway point, Newton-Conover scored 14 unanswered points to secure a 21-10 victory and maintain an unbeaten season.
