FERRIDAY TOO MUCH FOR MANY: WIN 56-17

Ferriday comes into the game behind a very potent offense, averaging 44 points per game throughout the playoffs. The Trojans are led by dual threat quarterback Kobe Dillon, a senior that can hurt a defense with his arm as well as his legs. On the other side of the ball the Many Tigers have a big time playmaker at tailback in Terrance Williams. At 6’2 225 pounds the junior running back is a load to bring down.

The game got underway with the Trojans trying a short high kick off. The return would go nowhere the return man was tackled immediately. Many would come out and put together a drive that would allow them to walk away with a field goal.

The two teams battled back and forth the entire first quarter, both deadlocked in a punting battle. Until, Ferriday quarterback Kobe Dillon found receiver Elijah White in the back of the end zone on a 17 yard touchdown toss to start the second quarter. The ensuing two point conversion would be no good. Ferriday would go up 6-3.

Eventually that would cycle of punting would break. The Trojans would get a sack on quarterback Ze’Quarrius Rhone, and force a fumble on the junior. Three plays later, Dillion would call his own number and run it in from 11 yards out. This time the two point attempt would be good.

Ferriday Head Coach Stanley Smith seemed to have dialed up more blitzes in the second quarter, as the Trojans were getting back in the backfield more often, and getting to Many quarterback Rhone. Making him feel uncomfortable in the pocket.

The Trojans would score another two touchdowns before the end of the half, driving the score on the Tigers 28-3. But on the kick off before the end of the half, it looked as if a Trojan player had taken the ball from the Tiger receiver on the return. The ball was fumbled and recovered by Ferriday, or at least it looked that way. After an official review it was ruled that the receiver had maintained control of the ball and there was no fumble on the play. The Tigers would go into halftime down 28-3 with the Trojans receiving the second half kick.

In the second half the Trojans seemed to slow down the game, and let the ground attack work for it. The Trojans would score again in the third quarter, this time Tevyn Byrd would get in for the score from two yards out. Many would try to rally but the rally would prove to be too little too late. The Trojans offense was too powerful and their defense too stifling.

Ferriday also set a Class 2A record tonight, averaging 11.4 yards per play. The previous record was 10.5 yards per play set in 1994 by Haynesville. Tonight the Trojans offense went 523 yards on 46 plays.
