Cardinals down Jumpertown
By BARRY BURLESON
The Potts Camp junior varsity football team earned its second win Thursday, thanks to Jamarquis Foster’s running on offense and four interceptions on defense.
The Cardinals, fielding their first football team in some 70 years, beat Jumpertown 26-22.
Foster scored three touchdowns, two rushing and one receiving.
“He had an awesome game,” said head coach Shane Stone. “His shortest touchdown was 40 yards - all big plays. He caught a quick pass just before half and broke it for about 65 yards and a score.”
The other Potts Camp touchdown came on Brantley Harris’ 65-yard interception return.
Javeon Allen ran for a two-point conversion to round out the scoring.
Defensively, Harris had two interceptions and picking off one pass each were Antonio Love and Darius Fitts.
“I’m very proud of that stat,” Coach Stone said.
The Thursday night win came after a 13-0 loss on Tuesday evening of last week at Mantachie, a long-time football school.
“They scored on us the first two times they had the ball and didn’t score the rest of the night,” Stone said. “Once we settled down, we did fine. We moved the ball most of the night, but we couldn’t push it in. Turnovers hurt us.
“Overall, the boys played hard. I was proud of the effort.”
Potts Camp (2-1) ends the season Thursday night with a trip to play Marshall County rival H.W. Byers. It’s the Lions’ homecoming game.
“This will be a super tough game for us,” Coach Stone said.
