Defense powers Cards
By BARRY BURLESON
It was a strange but successful preseason football jamboree Friday night for Potts Camp.
The Cardinals scored three times on defense in a two-quarter contest. They trounced Houlka 31-0 at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium on the Ole Miss campus in Oxford.
“It was a different type game,” coach Shane Stone said. “Our defense was on the field a lot, and our offense did not get as much work as I had hoped because of that. It was hard to get any type of rhythm going offensively.
“Overall the effort was good. The boys played with a lot of energy. When your defense scores once in a game, it’s a plus, but to do it three times in a half is a big benefit. It was the kind of game you’re not going to be a part of every Friday night.”
Potts Camp’s first-quarter touchdowns came on Jamarquis Foster’s 11-yard run and Ben Bolden’s 45-yard fumble return.
The Cardinals added three touchdowns in the second period. Brantley Harris returned a fumble 104 yards for six points; Bolden had a 63-yard interception return for a score; and Harris caught a 76-yard touchdown pass from his brother, Jordon Harris.
“We had some questions going into the jamboree,” Stone said, “and we’re going to have to make a few adjustments.
“Playing a jamboree gives you a chance to do that.
“We saw we’re not in the shape we need to be in. We have to get in better shape. We only played two quarters and we were tired.”
