JV Football Rolls Past West Johnston

Garner scored 26 unanswered points and built a commanding lead and never looked back on Thursday night to cruise past West Johnston 46-12 at Trojan Stadium.

The Trojans (4-3, 2-2) fell behind on the first drive of the game from West Johnston as the Wildcats reeled off a 12-play 70 yard drive to take an early 6-0 lead. However, the Trojans bounced right back with a four play drive as David Hamilton scampered 40 yards for the score and following an Austin Marbery extra point, the Trojans led 7-6.

After the two teams traded punts, West Johnston gave Garner up an easy score to the Trojans as Andrew Abrom picked off a pass and sprinted down the far sideline 47-yards to the house for a 13-6 Garner lead.

Early in the second stanza, Garner got the ball at its own 30 and it took just one play for Tyreece Taylor to rumbled 70-yards for another score and a 20-6 Trojan lead. That advantage ballooned to 20 points on Garner's next drive when the Trojans Jaykon Harris found a gap and ran 10 yards for a score.

After West return the ensuing kick-off back for a touchdown, the men of Troy answered right back with a nine play, 60-yard drive and capped the drive on a Taylor score and a 33-12 halftime lead for the Trojans.

In the second half, Taylor and Michael Robertson both added scoring runs for the Trojans and the final, 46-12 margin.

Garner will return to action next Thursday when they travel to Knightdale and a 6:30 kick-off with the Knights.
