JV Football Smacks Harnett Central; Crowned Champions

After a rocky start to the season, Garner's junior varsity football team bounced back in a big way, winning its final six games including a 48-6 bombardment of Harnett Central on Thursday night at Trojan Stadium, which earned the men of Troy another conference championship.

Garner (7-3, 6-1) opened the scoring on its second drive of the contest when Jaykwon Harris found some room on the outside and rumbled in from 11 yards out and a seven point lead.

Harnett Central fumbled on its ensuing possession leading giving the Trojans great starting position for another drive which ended in pay dirt once again. On the sixth play of the drive, Tyreece Taylor shed tackles and rolled into the end zone for a 13-0 advantage after the extra point was missed.

Central found its way in for a score on the next drive, but the two point conversion was no good and as a result, the homestanding Trojans led 13-6.

Garner answered right back and took a 20-6 lead after a five play drive for the score. Justin Robbins hit David Hamilton on a 34-yard pass play down to the Central four yard line which set up a touchdown run from Taylor on the following play.

After Central punted the football going three and out, Hamilton got loose on the first play of the next possession and sprinted down the field, 75-yard for another score and a 27-6 advantage. However, the first half scoring was not over for the Trojans as Hamilton scored his second touchdown of the night, this time from 15 yards and after an Austin Marbrey extra point, Garner led 34-6 heading into the halftime break.

The second half was more of the same as the men of Troy added a pair of scores, one from Austin Holland from 22 yards out and Khaliq Woods capped the scoring with a 24 yard scamper and the final 48-6 margin of victory.
