Roundup: Calvary Christian runs wild versus Friendship

MERIDIAN —     Calvary Christian Academy walked away with a 70-21 victory against Friendship Christian Academy despite running less than 20 offensive plays. It makes more sense when you factor in two defensive touchdowns and three special teams touchdowns.

    Calvary's Michael Bradley started the scoring early with a 55-yard touchdown run on the first play of the game. Jarred Crum punched in the two-point conversion.

    Calvary's defense got in on the action next with a 50-yard fumble return for a touchdown by Aljawon Kennedy. Michael Sullivan picked up the two-point conversion.

    Next up was special teams with a 70-yard punt return from Kennedy.

    Still in the first quarter, Smokey Washam took home a 65- punt return for a touchdown.

    Calvary closed out the first quarter with a 15-yard touchdown pass from Washam to Josh Roberts.

    The scoring continued in the second quarter with a 6-yard touchdown rush from Crum and an 80-yard kickoff return for a touchdown from Washam. Austin Carter picked up a two-point-conversion on Crum's touchdown.

    Calvary found the end zone three more time in the second quarter on a 14-yard Bradley rush, a 52-yard Danny Miller rush, and a 75-yard Bradley interception return. Beto Medina scored a two-point conversion after Bradley's rushing touchdown.

    The win moves Calvary to 2-4 overall. They face Veritas next week in a key division battle.

Forrest County    16

Newton County    15

    The Newton County Cougars dropped just their second game of the year to reigning Class 4A champions Forrest County, 16-15, on a late field goal.

    "It was a good, hard fought ball game," Cougar head coach Jackie said. "We're proud of the way our kids played ... we just couldn't put it away."

    Newton County took a 15-7 lead into halftime, but couldn't finish out the second half. The Aggies won the game on a 24-yard field goal.

    "Our kids relized they can play with a really good ball team," he said.

    Williamson said the defense had a great night to hold Forrest's offense to its lowest scoring output this season.

    Quarterback Jacob Edwards returned from injury and led the Cougars on the ground and in the air. He threw for 51 yards on six-of-10 attempts for one touchdown and one interception, while rushing for 53-yards on 14 carries.
