Jayvees a bright spot for Comet football program

SoVaNow.com / September 16, 2013
The Comet jayveess delivered a positive result for a football program in need of good news Thursday.

The Comets, sparked by an excellent passing effort from James Smith, Jr., and other major contributors, defeated Person County, 28-27.

PC scored first, taking an early 7-0 lead.

Then Smith connected with Kelonte Gutrich on a scoring touchdown pass, and HCHS added the conversion to tie.

PC then broke a long scoring run, but Smith scored on a one-yard scoring plunge to force another tie.

It was deadlocked, 14-all, at the half.

Then, in the second half, Tyrus Pannell scored on a go-ahead scoring run in the third period.

PC led 21-20 after a score early in the fourth period.

With about five minutes left, HCHS drove, and made some key plays. Gutrich had a key catch on a fourth down conversion, while Justin Logan and Smith had some valuable runs. And Jarvis Owens had an important catch to keep the Comets moving.

HCHS got a key late touchdown run by Smith to give the Comets a 26-21 lead. Smith and Owens combined on an excellent two-point conversion for a 28-21 lead.

PC scored with two minutes left, but Justin Logan made a key defensive stop off the edge to deny the Rockets the two-point conversion, and the final lead.

HCHS protected the one-point lead.

The Comets recovered the ensuing on-sides kick to preserve the victory.

The jayveess are 2-1.
