Jayvees find offense in fourth quarter
SoVaNow.com / November 04, 2013The Halifax County High School jayvee football squad enjoyed an offensive revival in the final period.
Unfortunately for the Comets, visiting Franklin County had spent the first three periods pounding away with a physical, versatile attack.
FCHS won Thursday night in South Boston, 54-25.
HCHS, now 6-3 overall, finally started to figure out the Franklin County defense in the final period. First, quarterback James Smith connected with wideout Kelonte Gutrich on a nearly flawless scoring strike with 9:02 left in the game.
But FCHS kept on pounding away, extending its lead again.
Smith exploded on another scoring run to cut the FCHS margin to 46-19 with 8:07 remaining.
Smith later erupted on a terrific scoring play to get the Comets back on the board. The 54-25 final margin stood.
Comet jayvee coach Kenneth Day said FC’s overall season record does not indicate how good the Eagles are this season.
FC dominated the line of scrimmage on offense.
“They just pretty much did whatever they wanted to do. We hustled. We kept playing hard the whole time,” said Day.
And HCHS had an offensive surge in the final period.
“We just made too many mistakes. The kids played hard,” said Day.
