Moye and the Trojans Run Past Caps


On a rainy Friday night, the Trojans hit the road for the second game of the season as they took on the Broughton Capitals. As the two teams got ready to kick off, the rain fell harder and harder and basically turned into a smash mouth grind it out type of game.

Broughton got the ball first and failed to score. Garner then took over in Broughton territory (Garner's first five possessions began in the Broughton end) and marched down the field but had to settle for a Connor Torruella field goal which was no good and the game was still scoreless, until the Trojans next possession when Juwan Moye rumbled 18 yards for the games first touch down to make it 6-0 after the PAT was no good.

After another Capital possession was un-successful, it was the Juwan Moye show again as he bolted 52 yards for the touchdown to make it 12-0 Garner mid way through the first quarter. Garner would attempt the two point conversion was no good and the Trojans would have to settle for the 12 point lead, which was hold up through the entire second quarter and at the end of 24 minutes of football, Garner held a 12-0 lead in the driving rain.

After Garner got the opening kick off of the second half and couldn't get a spark on the drive, Broughton came right back and played some smash mouth football as they took a long 3:58 drive and capped the drive with a touchdown from Chris Mangus, to make the score 12-7 in favor of Garner.

But to the Trojans credit, Garner came right back and put another great drive together and again it was Juwan Moye who stole the show. But, give a tip of the cap also to Dwighty Darity, Demetrius Fairley, and Terrence Fussell who carried the ball very well for the Trojans tonight getting the ball down to the Broughton 13 where Moye capped the drive to make it 18-7 Trojans.

Later in the third, Moye would put an exclamation point on their win as he scampered 68 yards for the touchdown and the final points of the game as the Trojans defeat Broughton 24-7.

The Trojans would finish the game with 312 rushing yards and 25 passing yards (337 total yards). While Broughton only managed 111 yards of total offense. Meanwhile, Juwan Moye finished the game with 18 carries for 203 yards a 4 touchdowns.

Garner will be back in action NEXT FRIDAY at home vs. Middle Creek at 7:30. Please note that the game will NOT be played on Thursday, as the information given on the web cast was incorrect, the game will be Friday!!

JV Football Comes From Behind to Down Caps

The 2009 edition of the JV Trojans took the field for the first time on Thursday night as they hosted the Broughton Capitals at Trojan Stadium.

Garner (1-0) would get on the board first on their second possession of the night as a ten play, 71 yard drive was capped by a Raevon Smith 24 yard touch down run, however the PAT was no good and the Trojans had a 6-0 lead. Broughton wasted little time getting on the board as they scored on the very next drive as Chris Whitley ran it 59 yards to the house and gave Broughton a 7-6 lead after the first quarter.

After the Trojans opening drive of the second quarter stalled, Broughton went to the air and got on the board again as Will Cooper hit Maurice McClean for the 24 yard TD strike and it was now 14-6 Caps.

But Garner would respond as Raevon Smith ran the kickoff back 50 yards to the Broughton 48 which set up a Tyler Hinton 48 yard touch down scamper and cut the lead to two at 14-12. Broughton would add a late score to take a 21-12 lead into the locker room at halftime, but as they usually do, Garner came out a different team in the second half.

After Carrington Austin picked off a Will Cooper pass to set the Trojans up, Raevon Smith capped off another long scoring as he went 56 yards to the house and cut the lead to two points at 21-19.

Garner took the lead on Broughton's next drive as again Carrington Austin intercepted a Will Cooper pass, this time, Austin went into the end zone to give the Trojans a 26-21 lead, one they would not relinquish.

On the Capitals very next drive, Aaron Roberts coughed up the football and gave it right back to the Trojans who took only one play for Anthony Tucker to run the reverse 30 yards into the end zone and give Garner a 32-21 lead.

Neither team would score again until late in the 3rd quarter as Tyler Hinton intercepted another Will Cooper pass and took it in 56 yards to pay dirt for the 39-21 lead.

The fourth quarter would be a battle of field position as neither team could manage much offense, but the Trojans still managed to hold the Capitals scoreless in the second half as the Trojans rolled to the 39-21 victory to kick off 2009.

Coach Hines and the JV Trojans will be back in action next Wednesday night at 7:00 at Middle Creek High School.

Garner Rallies Late, But Can't Hang on in First Game of 09

Live Web Cast.

The Trojans began their 2009 season on the road as they traveled to Millbrook High School to take on the Wildcats on Friday night, in a rematch of last years double overtime State Playoff Game.

Garner got the ball to begin the game and wasted little time getting on the board. Juwan Moye took the Cody Woodall hand off and scampered 62 yards down the sideline for the Touchdown and give the Trojans a 7-0 lead.

However, Millbrook would come right back on the very next possession and tied the game at seven on a 57 yard touchdown pass from Trey McFarland to Scott Gray. After Garner went three and out, Millbrook came right back and scored on a 72 yard touchdown pass, but Matt Knudson missed the PAT and Millbrook had a 13-7 lead, which would be the score after the first quarter.

After a Garner punt late in the first half, the Wildcats capitalized on good field position and ran just three plays to get into the end zone and take a 27-0 lead into the locker room at halftime.

Millbrook got the ball to begin the third quarter and the Trojan defense came up big forcing the Wildcats to go three and out and the Garner offense promptly came to life. After a pass interferance call on Millbrook, Garner had the ball deep in Millbrook territory and after a couple of big plays, Cody Woodall completed a slant pass to Seth Coucil inside the five yard line, but Garner couldn't punch it in a had to settle for a 23 yard Connor Torruella field goal which was his first ever Varsity field goal.

Again, Millbrook would go three and out on their next turn with the football and that's when the Trojan offense found a spark. On the second play of the drive, Juwan Moye found a crease and took it 30 yards for a touchdown and cut the lead to three at 20-17.

Leading by three, Millbrook put together a eight play drive only to fall short and face a 4th and 12 from around midfield. Matt Kundson was back to put, but he took too much time to get the punt away and Andre Gillispe got a hand on the punt and swatted it away as it was scooped up by Justin Chavis who ran it back for the touchdown and give the Trojans a 24-20 lead.

Millbrook then came right back and scored a touchdown on a 47 yard pass play to take a three point lead. Trailing by three Garner got sent to march down the field, however, Cody Woodall had his pocketed pick by Jerrick Feaster who took it back deep in Trojan territory where Millbrook later salted the game away with a 9 yard touchdown run from Keith Marshall.

Garner would go on to fall to Millbrook 34-24 in the first game of the season. Despite the loss, the Trojans could pick up many positive things from the game tonight as they move forward to the game next Friday at Broughton.

Kick-Off for the game against the Caps is slated for 7:00 and Air Time on the Trojan Sports Network will be 6:45.

The Trojan Sports Network would like to thank Millbrook AD Scott McInnes and his staff for allowing us to bring you tonight's game.

Varsity Soccer Has Rough First Week

Despite their terrific efforts on the field in the first two games of the season, Coach Sherwin's Varsity Soccer team is 0-2. Garner opened the season on Tuesday night with a 4-0 loss at Athens Drive.

The schedule got tougher for the Trojans last night as they opened the home portion of their schedule with a tough 6-2 loss to Middle Creek. The Mustangs were off to a hot start after playing Brought very tough earlier in the week and Garner stepped up their game on Wednesday night take a 2-1 lead into halftime, but Middle Creek quickly responded scoring 5 unanswered goals to defeat the Trojans 6-2.

Garner is back in action Monday when they travel to Millbrook. The JV game begins at 4:30 and the Varsity will follow at 6:30.

Varsity Football Back in Action with Solid Showing at Pigskin

On Friday night, we got our first look at Nelson Smith's 2009 Trojans and it seems like 09 will be a promising year for the Trojans.

Garner was up against Leesville Road first in the scrimmage on Friday night and after giving up a touchdown to the Pride of the first series of the game, the Trojans came to life as the defense settled down and did not allow another score to the Pride until very late in the scrimmage.

The offense also came to life for the Trojans, on the second possession of the game for the Trojans, Terrance Fussell broke loose and ran in for the 12 yard score. The touchdown was set up by a long pass from Marques Towsend to James Skillern for a big first down.

After a big sack by Ricky Denning for the Garner defense, the Trojans got the ball and scored on back to back to back possessions as Juwan Moye took it in from 45 yards out for the score. Freshman, Lemond Johnson then hooked up with Isiah Moore for a touchdown and then, Gavin Wilson took it in from 45 yards to give the Trojans their final score of the first scrimmage.

In the second scrimmage, the Trojans faced host Wake Forest-Rolesville and this game was dominated by the defenses. On their opening drive of the game, the Trojan offense which started at their own 20 crossed mid-field before the drive stalled.

The Cougars did get some big runs from stud running back Trea Jones but Garner did a good job keeping him in check. Garner had one big series late the contest as again Freshman, Lemond Johnson scrambled and went to the air and connected with Kenneth Demby for a big 60 yd. touchdown pass.

Late in the scrimmage, the two teams went to goal line stands and the first team defense did a pretty good job keeping WFR off the board the final play of the scrimmage saw first team quarterback, Cody Woodall connect on a pass in the back of the end zone for another Trojan score.

Garner showed a lot of speed and athleticism in the contest and will look to continue to improve in practice this week as they prepare for the first game of the season, next Friday August 21st at 7:00 when they travel to Millbrook.
