Meadowview drops sixth loss of the season on homecoming to PickensPublished 1:10am Saturday, October 13, 2012
The Meadowview Christian Trojans dropped their sixth loss of the season Friday night at Wasden field, falling 47-19 to the undefeated Pickens Academy Pirates.
“We gave them all they wanted during the first half, but they just wore us out in the second,” Meadowview Christian head coach Lebo Jones said.
The Trojans (2-6, 1-4 AISA Class 1A, Region 2) received the ball to start the match and marched down to the Pickens Academy 46-yard line before coming up an inch short on fourth down, turning the ball over.
The Pirates (8-0, 6-0 AISA Class 1A Region 2) capitalized with a nine-play scoring drive, as quarterback Josh Lewis punched it in from 3-yards out giving the Pirates a 7-0 lead following the extra point.
Meadowview answered on its next possession, driving the ball 52 yards. Hunter Hale found some room on the outside and was able to scamper into the end zone from 15-yards out, tying the game at 7-7.
The Pirates ran the kick off back to their own 49-yard line, giving them great field possession and setting up their next touchdown, which came on an 11-yard run by Garrett Estes.
Following their second impressive drive, Trojan quarterback Seth Taylor, who went 5 for 5 passing for 99 yards and one touchdown during the first half, found Hale open near the goal line, where he made the catch and scored with 6:07 remaining in the half. A failed extra point left Meadowview trailing 14-13.
The Trojan defense didn’t hold up, letting Lewis hit Joel Pratt for a 26-yard touchdown pass prior to halftime. The Pirates took a 20-13 lead into the locker room.
Pickens Academy would go on to score on four out of its first five possessions of the second half, running away with the game 47-19.
