Cardinals still unbeaten
By BARRY BURLESON
Potts Camp continued its win streak Tuesday night of last week.
The junior varsity Cardinals traveled a short distance east on Highway 78 to New Albany and knocked off Union County 18-6. They improved to 3-0 on the season.
“We’re having fun right now,” said head coach Shane Stone, “but that could come to an end quickly.”
Potts Camp visits intra-county rival H.W. Byers this Thursday.
“That will be a tough, tough game,” Stone said.
The defenses dominated the bulk of the game last week.
The Cardinals took a 6-0 lead in the first quarter on an 11-yard pass from Brantley Harris to Marcellous Johnson.
Later in the first half, Potts Camp fumbled on its own 15. Union County recovered and carried to the 3. The home team punched it into the end zone from there. The game was tied at 6.
That score held until the fourth quarter.
Harris scored on a 1-yard quarterback sneak, and then Jamarquis Foster sealed the victory with a 21-yard gallop to the end zone.
“We looked a lot better the second half,” Coach Stone said.
“We made some adjustments at halftime. They hurt us on some runs outside in the first half but we got that corrected.”
Foster was the workhorse on offense. He carried 15 times for 151 yards.
Harris was five of eight through the air for 82 yards. Johnson had two catches for 43 yards.
Top tacklers for the Cards were Jeremy Honor with nine and Kody Joyner and Demaris Edwards with five each.
The Potts Camp junior high squad also beat Union County. The final was 32-0.
Jordan Harris scored three touchdowns. Hunter Joyner caught a long pass from Harris for a score. Jarvis Jones carried for the other touchdown.
There will be junior high and junior varsity games at H.W. Byers this Friday with the junior high kicking action off at 5:30 p.m.
