Trojans hammer Fike


Garner opened up the home portion of their 2011-12 basketball season in grand style as Coach Gray the defending two-time Greater Neuse River champions placed six in double-figures as they hammered Wilson Fike 103-72 on Tuesday night at Trojan Coliseum.

Garner (2-0) fell behind 1-0 on an Aaron Sessoms free throw to begin the game and never looked back as they went on a 10-0 run over the next two and a half minutes to open up an nine point lead forcing Fike (0-4) head coach, Brent Seacrest to call a timeout.

But, before you could blink, Garner was running away with the game after the first quarter with a 22-7 lead.

Larry Richardson helped lead the Trojans in the first half with a couple of impressive dunks and a pair of three's to give the men of Troy a 52-24 halftime lead.

The third quarter belonged to Dominique Reed as the senior poured in 11 points in the stanza to finish with 25 points which led all scorers and gave the Trojans a 79-50 advantage after three.

In the fourth, Coach Gray emptied his bench allowing everyone to play as a team effort led Garner to the 103-72 win.

The Trojans return home on Friday night at 7:30 when they welcome Middle Creek to Trojan Coliseum.

Varsity Girls Fall to Fike

Trailing 21-20 at the break, Coach Mays and his Lady Trojans couldn't overcome a poor shooting second half as they allowed Fike to open up a six point lead midway through the third quarter.

However, the Lady Trojans cut the lead to three late in the game before Fike hit some late free throws to pick up the 50-40 win.

The Lady Trojans (1-1) will host Middle Creek on Friday at 6:00

Look out Winston-Salem, here come the Trojans


Tim Thorb hauled in his second touchdown of the night from Vince Jefferies to put Garner up for good at 34-27 with just over a minute left in the game to propel the Trojans to the 4-AA State Championship game with a victory over Jack Britt.

Garner (15-0) struck first as Demetrius Fairley scored from two-yards out to make it 7-0 Trojans. But the Bucs answered right back late in the first quarter as Mark McCrae fired to Jalen McDaniel, but after a failed extra point, it was 7-6 Trojans.

Jack Britt (11-3) scored on their next drive after a Garner turnover as Kenny Jenkins caught his first touchdown pass of the night to make it 12-7 Bucs after the two-point try was missed.

The Trojans answered right back and were able to answer the call thanks to a holding penalty on Jack Britt to keep the drive alive. On the sixth play after the penalty, Jefferies hit Thorb in the back of the end zone for a 14-12 lead for Garner that they carried to the locker room.

After Garner went three and out to begin the second half, it was the Trojan defense that came up big pick-six with Jarvis Shelton running it back 61-yards for the score and a 21-12 Trojan lead.

Britt came storming back, though on a 11 play drive that was aided by a roughing the passer call on Garner and was capped by a Lindon Watkins touchdown run to make it 21-19 Garner midway through the third quarter.

Once again, the men of Troy responded as Jefferies gunned another touchdown pass, this time to Fairley and a 27-19 Garner lead. Britt right back down the field and scored to tie the game on a touchdown run from Watkins on third and goal from the one and after a successful two-point try, it was 27 all.

For the next three minutes, both defenses came up with stop after stop before Jefferies hit Thorb for the second time and the game winner as Garner came up with the 34-27 win.

The Trojans will now advance to the 2011 4-AA State Championship next week against Greensboro Page. Kick-off from BB&T Field on the campus of Wake Forest University is slated for 3:00.

Trojans pounce on Pride; Advance to Regional Finals


In a battle of two heavyweight programs on Friday night, Garner was the last man standing as they pulled out a 42-21 over visiting Leesville Road at Trojan Stadium.

Leesville (12-1) scored on the opening possession of the game on a third down and long when Braxton Berrios hit Darajai Robinson for a 73-yard touchdown pass and a early 7-0 lead.

After a three and out by the Trojans, Leesville looked to go up by a pair of scores, but that's when the defense came up big and forced the first Pride turnover of the night which led to the first score of the game for the Trojans as Demetrius Fairley scored from four yards out to knot the game at seven.

On their next possession, Garner (14-0) scored to take the lead as Vince Jefferies hit Juwan Moye in stride for a 34-yard connection and after a Tyler White extra point, it was 14-7 Trojans.

Late in the second quarter, that lead grew to 21-7 as the Trojans put together a 10 play scoring drive that covered 75 yards and ended with another connection from Jefferies to Moye and heading to the locker room it was a 14 point lead for Garner.

The Trojans got the ball to start the second half and wasted little time pouring it on as Moye score again, this time on the ground and from 34-yards out and a 28-7 lead.

However, the Pride wouldn't quit as they answered right back with a touchdown run from Berrios and it was 28-14 midway through the third quarter. Both teams then played field position for the next couple of drives and eventually ended the third quarter with Garner up 28-14.

Up by 14 points, Garner got the ball to start the fourth quarter and again put together a long scoring drive which covered 12 plays and was all on the ground and ended with a four yard run from Fairley.

Again, Leesville responded with a 33 yard scamper from Berrios to make it 35-21. On the ensuing kick-off, Garner got the ball at the Pride 49 yard line thanks to an onside kick which didn't travel the required 10 yards and Garner was able to take about four minutes off the clock before Fairley scored again to make it 42-21.

On the ensuing drive, Berrios was picked off by Raevon Smith to seal the 42-21 victory for the Trojans.

Garner will return to Trojan Stadium next week when they welcome Fayetteville Jack Britt to Trojan Stadium for the Eastern Regional Championship. Kick-off is slated for 7:30.

The preliminary sketch above is an idea of the final product as several changes have been made. The mural is being done on the 14'x24' billboard that is one of the most visible landmarks on campus - facing the main road (Spring Drive) sitting directly at the entrance to the sports facilities and parking lot."

This is a special project to us for a high school that has educated members of our family since it was founded. The coaches, teachers, and learning atmosphere at Garner is unmatched and always will be.

Trojans out last Laney; Advance to third round


In a game filled with offense, it was the Garner defense that came up with the key stops to lift the Trojans to a 55-35 win over Wilmington Laney in the second round of the 4-AA State Playoffs.

Garner (13-0) scored on the opening drive of the game on a touchdown run from Demetrius Fairley. But, that lead wouldn't last long as Laney (8-4) answered right back moving down the field through the air before Mike Sheehan rolled into the end zone to knot the score at seven all.

The Trojans responded with a 18-yard run again from Fairley, however, on the ensuing drive, the Bucs had an answer and scored on a Ryan Lilley two-yard run to make it 14-14 mid way through the opening quarter.

On their next drive, Garner responded as Vince Jefferies hit Anthony Tucker on a fade to the back of the end zone for a 20-14 lead for the home squad. Thanks to that missed extra point, the score for Laney on the next drive gave the Bucs a 21-20 lead.

After Garner scored on a Juwan Moye touchdown run and the Trojans added the two-point conversion it was 28-21, and that's where the defense stepped up.

Laney, on fourth down and four elected to go for it with the ball resting on the Trojan 44-yard line. The Bucs would go to the air but it was knocked away and with that defensive stop, the momentum swung back to the Trojans who were able to run to pay dirt on their next offensive drive to make it 35-21 and the men of Troy never looked back.

Garner would score once more before the break as Jefferies hit Moye from three-yards out and a 42-21 Trojan lead at the break.

The Trojans first score of the second half came early in the third quarter when Fairley found a hole and rumbled 52-yards for the score and a 49-21 lead.

Garner lit the lamp one final time as Gavin Wilson picked up his second interception of the year and took back to the Laney two yard line, one play later, Moye capped the scoring for the Trojans.

Laney added two late scores but couldn't come back as Garner advances to the third round of the state playoffs for the second straight year with a 55-35 win over the Bucs.

Garner will return to Trojan Stadium next week when they host Leesville Road, kick-off is slated for 7:30.

Garner shuts down Athens to advance


On a soggy night at Trojan Stadium, Garner used their ground attack to down Athens Drive 42-0 in the first round of the 4-AA state playoffs.

Athens Drive (5-7) took the opening kick-off down the field before attempting a 32-yard field goal, however, Tommy Evanoff's kick hit the upright and bounced off.

That was more than enough for Garner (12-0) who took the ensuing possession and marched down field thanks to a 59-yard Juwan Moye run down to the one yard line before Vince Jefferies punched it in for a seven point lead.

Early in the second quarter, the Trojans extended their lead as Jefferies hit Armani Lanier for a 27-yard touchdown strike and a 14-0 lead.

Midway through the third, it was the Garner rushing attack again as the Trojans marched down tho the one yard line before Moye scored to make it 21-0 Garner.

On the ensuing kick-off, Athens fumbled the ball away where Garner picked up the loose ball and on the ensuing drive, Anthony Tucker scored on a reverse and when the extra point snapped was bobble, Moye took off and ran it in for the two-point try and a 29-0 lead.

That lead grew to 36-0 at the break after a Demetrius Fairley 13-yard run and at intermission, it was all Trojans.

Garner put their final score on the board on the first drive of the third quarter. The scoring drive lasted 13 plays and covered 65 yards taking over six minutes off the clock and was capped with Fairley's second score of the night as the Trojans rolled to the second round with a 42-0 victory.

The Trojans will return home next week when they welcome Wilmington Laney to Trojan Stadium. Kick-off is slated for 7:30.
