Cardinals earn another shutout
By BARRY BURLESON
Shane Stone likes his team’s hustle. And the 2-0 record is just fine, too.
The junior varsity Potts Camp Cardinals earned their second straight shutout to open the season by beating New Site 28-0 on the road last Thursday.
“The effort has been outstanding,” Coach Stone said. “We’re making mental mistakes, but at the same time we’re really getting after it, and that’s all I can ask for.”
The Cardinals took an 8-0 lead in the first quarter on Jamarquis Foster’s 19-yard touchdown run and Brantley Harris’ two-point conversion.
It was 14-0 at the half. Harris connected with Foster on a 40-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter. A try-for-two failed.
Potts Camp secured the win with a couple of fourth quarter touchdowns.
Jeremy Honor scored on a 7-yard run, and then Javeon Allen carried 70 yards for six points. Harris threw to Randy Love for a two-point conversion after Honor’s touchdown.
The JV Cardinals had beaten Mantachie 14-0 September 2 to open the season.
“Our defense has really been tough so far,” Coach Stone said. “We work hard at it.”
Against New Site, Harris was nine of 12 passing for 91 yards. Foster had three catches for 44 yards and Zack Mayer three for 19.
Allen was the leading rusher with 78 yards. Foster had 48 and Honor 26.
Corinthian Echols and Honor spearheaded the stout defense with 13 tackles each.
The Cardinals were scheduled to play Union County on Tuesday night of this week at New Albany. They will travel to H.W. Byers next Thursday, Sept. 23, for a 7 p.m. game.
