Helen Cox-Carver battle highlights Thursday schedule
Week two of the prep football season gets underway Thursday evening around the state.
Seven area teams are in action.
The one game involving a pair of local teams will take place at Joe Brown Stadium at 7 p.m. as Carver battles Helen Cox.
The Rams led much of the way but lost a 35-34 thriller at St. Amant.
Helen Cox got off to an excellent start with a 19-6 win on the road at Ellender.
Brandon White had four sacks on defense as part of his nine tackles while wide receivers Gil Chapman and Darnell O’Quinn played well, as did senior running back Jason Jackson.
“I think were more resilient than anything in dealing with a two and a half hour lightning delay. Overall, we got a good look at who we are and what we need to do. Our offensive line played really well as we ran it well and threw it when we needed to. We played well defensively but have to eliminate penalties. Carver has speed.”
Burnell Lewis was outstanding up front for Carver while senior Savon Jefferson ran the ball well for the Rams.
Carver coach Byron Addison was pleased with his team despite the tough loss to St. Amant.
“I like the fact that our guys competed well and we overcame so much adversity,” Addison said. “We played sound and were not intimidated. We have to learn how to finish. We have a lot of guys who are brand new on defense. Helen Cox looks like a team that you have to play well against. We have to minimize mistakes.”
