Trojans blast Spartans


Garner scored on every possession they had on Friday night at Charles Tucker Stadium as they hammered Smithfield-Selma 76-7.

Smithfield-Selma (0-7, 0-3) went three and out on their first drive and gave Garner great field position and on the second play of the drive, Demetrius Fairley scored his first touchdown of the night and the Trojans were off to the races.

On the next drive, Garner (7-0, 3-0) once again as Vince Jefferies connected with Juwan Moye for the only touchdown pass of the night and a quick 13-0 lead. After another SSS three and out, it was Moye again, this time on the ground as he put Garner up 20-0 with six minutes left in the first quarter.

The Trojans were able to get on the board one final time in the first quarter as Fairley scored his second and final touchdown of the night and a 27-0 lead for Garner after one. However, the scoring was far from over.

Garner's first play drive of the second quarter resulted in another touchdown pass from Jefferies to Moye and a 34-0 lead. The final appearance by the Garner first team came when Moye returned the ensuing punt 47-yards for pay dirt and a 41 point lead.

Andre Gillispie was the next Trojan to find the end zone as he scored his second rushing touchdown of the season to make it 48-0 with over five minutes left in the first half. Following another SSS three and out, Anthony Tucker fielded the Spartan punt and rumbled into the end zone from 60-yards out and a 55-0 lead.

Raveon Smith capped the first half scoring for Garner with a seven yard touchdown run and a 62-0 lead. SSS got on the board on the final play of the half as Dylan Homick connected with Donald Jones for an 89-yard touchdown pass and make it 62-7 Garner at the break.

The second half would be a contentious clock and the second team saw a lot of action for Garner as they scored a total of 14 second half points.

Garner's second half scores came off touchdown runs from Sam Stidwell and Montel Watters as the Trojans second 70 plus points against SSS for the second year in a row with a 76-7 victory.

The men of Troy return to Trojan Stadium next week when they welcome West Johnston to town, kick-off is scheduled for 7:30.
