Archdale-Trinity and South Asheboro faced off tonight in a pivotal game with both teams hoping to improve their record to 3 wins and 2 losses. The Bulldogs were coming off an exciting overtime victory over NAMS, and the Blue Comets were looking to rebound from a tough loss to NERMS.
The first 2 quarters were dominated by the defense for both teams. SAMS defense featured a big defensive line that forced the Bulldogs to run the ball outside. The A-TMS defense was led by a group of linebackers that flew to the ball and disrupted the Blue Comets by making plays in the backfield. Both teams were able to move the chains in the first half and looked very good running the ball, but neither team put points on the board in the first half. A-TMS was marching down the field with 4 minutes left in the 2nd quarter, but they fumbled the ball on the Comet 12 yard line. South Asheboro was moving the ball down the field right before the end of the 1st half when Tyler Takac came up with an interception for the Bulldogs with 13 seconds remaining in the 2nd quarter. The game was scoreless at the half.
A-TMS put the first points on the board with 2:54 left in the 3rd quarter. Chase Wooley ran the ball around the right side to give the Bulldogs a 6-0 lead. The 2-point conversion attempt was converted by quarterback Johnny Wagner, but was called by a holding call. The second attempt was no good. The Archdale-Trinity defense continued to hold strong and keep the Comets out of the end zone. The Bulldogs put 6 more points on the board with 2:28 remaining in the 4th quarter when Wagner converted on 4th and goal from the Comet 3 yard line. The 2-point conversion attempt failed again, and A-TMS held a 12-0 advantage.
The Bulldogs would hold onto that lead to defeat the Blue Comets. Archdale-Trinity Head Coach Brian Leckonby was proud of his team for finishing strong and pulling off a great team win. “The offensive line did a great job against a tough defensive line. Our running backs ran hard, and we had great blocking on the outside with our receivers, and our defense stepped up and kept them from scoring.
