Cards ease past Buccaneers
By BARRY BURLESON
The outcome Friday night at Potts Camp was determined quickly.
The high-flying Cardinals got four touchdowns and two safeties in the first quarter to go up 31-0 on Benton County.
“We came out and played well – offensively and defensively,” coach Shane Stone said.
The final, 45-0, was on the scoreboard at halftime.
Potts Camp improved to 8-1 with one game remaining. Last week Stone’s squad moved into the Daily Journal’s “Small School Poll” at number five, quite an accomplishment for a new program in its fourth season.
“That’s definitely something for this football team to be proud of,” Stone said.
The Cardinals went to 6-0 on their new home field with the easy win over Benton County, a new football program in its second season.
Quarterback Jordon Harris scored twice in the opening period on runs of 25 and 22 yards. He also tossed a 12-yard pass to his brother, Brantley Harris, for a score. Joseph Folsom reached the end zone from 2 yards out for the other touchdown in the first 12 minutes.
Safeties were recorded by Foster and Ray Maxey.
Harris tallied his third touchdown of the night in the second quarter – this one on a 32-yard burst.
Foster finished Potts Camp’s scoring with a 7-yard carry.
Jesse Shaw was successful on five of six extra-point kicks.
The Cardinals, playing as a Class 2A independent, are not eligible for the playoffs. They will complete their season this Friday by hosting New Site at 7 p.m.
“For us, it’s about finishing,” Stone said. “We’ve had a lot success this season and we don’t need to let up. I’m very proud of our kids.”
The Cardinals’ lone loss was to 6A DeSoto Central in week two of the season.
