Hines, Trojans Dominate Warriors


After falling behind by a touchdown in the early going, Garner's Nyheim Hines put on a show for the crowd at Johnny Sasser Stadium, scoring four total touchdowns as the Trojans coasted past East Wake 41-14 on Friday night.

East Wake (0-6, 0-2) won the coin toss and promptly marched the ball down the field nine plays on the Garner defense and cashed in as Trent Evans hit Evan Finch for a 41-yard touchdown and a seven point Warriors lead.

But, Garner (6-0, 2-0) answered back on its debut possession of the contest. The Trojans established their rushing attack before Hines capped the drive with an 11 yard touchdown run to knot the game.

After a missed field goal from East Wake's John Adams, Vince Jefferies hit Hines from nine yards out for a 14-7 lead. Late in the first half, Garner added another score when Jefferies found Hines again. However, it was the super sophomore who did most of the work on the bubble screen, dodging tackles and speeding down the field for a 14 point, 21-7 Garner lead at halftime.

The men of Troy got the football to start the second half and promptly marched down the field with a steady diet of the rush before Reavon Smith got in on the scoring action with a scamper to pay dirt and a 28-7 lead.

Garner's lead grew to 35-7 when Hines ended his night with a modest four yards away. The Trojans final score came through the air when Jefferies hit Armani Lanier in the back of the end zone for a 41-7 lead.

East Wake added a late score for the final 41-14 margin and keep their skid to the Trojans in tact. The Warriors have not defeated the men of Troy since the 2004 season.

Garner will return home next week for homecoming when they host Smithfield-Selma inside Trojan Stadium, kick-off is slated for 7:00
