McEachern 42, Lassiter 28

Quarterback Ty Clemons ran for two touchdowns and passed for another to lead McEachern to a 42-28 victory over Lassiter in the second game of the Battle of the Big Chicken doubleheader Friday at McEachern.

McEachern (2-0) scored on its first two possessions of the third quarter to take control of a game that was tied 21-21 at halftime. Clemons scored on an 18-yard run with 8:46 to play in the quarter, and Ryan Sherman had a 12-yard touchdown run a little less than two minutes later.

McEachern led 21-7 early in the second quarter, but Lassiter (0-1) scored two touchdowns in the final 6:08 of the half. Will Anderson threw a touchdown pass to Lane Jackman on the first play after an interception by Clay Roelle set the Trojans up at the McEachern, and John Corley tied it with a 3-yard run with seven seconds to play in the half.

Clemons scored on a 42-yard run and threw a 17-yard touchdown pass to Artise Clark in the first half.

Congrats on another great game, Indians, even if it didn’t end until ~1:30am. What a fun team to watch. Speed. Speed. And more speed.

Pretty good shoing by Lass. Mac played last week and we didn’t, so obvious some flaws are going to be. Just gotta go and study the film and correct the mistakes as quickly as you can. Looks like the team has a lot of potential to do great things. Just ran into a Mac team that is just more experienced and have all of that speed in the backfield.

Onto defeating Sprayberry!

We all know McEachern will go undefeated in the regular season! The question has and always will be – will the coaching staff have this team ready when it counts the most -winning in the playoffs that results in a state championship? We shall see!

Indian Fan I agree the question in everyone’s mind is can we make it past the first round ? Will we be ready? I firmly believe that the coaches are making strides in the right direction as far as penalties go. We managed I think 10 penalties compared to last weeks 14, slight improvement in my opinion. If we can minimize the mental mistakes on the field, play 4 qtrs of offense and 4 qtrs of defense, I see no reason we can’t go all the way.

@Mac Double, I can’t predict who will win between North Cobb and the Indians, all I know is North Cobb is a great team and coached very well. I’m sure our coaches and players will do whatever is necessary to be ready for that game. I guess we all will know when the clock strikes 0:00 at the end of the 4th quarter.

Worrying about NC this week is the first step to being upset by Pebblebrook next week.

@westcobb5 nobody is over looking anyone! All the man is saying is he cant predict the MHS vs NC game. As fans though we can overlook any game we want! Trust me MHS will be ready.

@THE TRUTH . . . I think we’re all on the same page here. Sometimes I think it a bit disrespectful to the opponents between now and NC when we make too much reference to that game. After all, Pebblebrook beat SW Dekalb last night – so congrats to them! Love those out of conference wins. I truly believe that Mac has the TALENT to run the table, IF they play smart, disciplined football with minimal injuries, turnovers, and penalties. Keyword: IF.

Good Game Indians…you all have a lot of talent on your team. Enjoyed watching you the last two weeks. Speed, Speed, and more Speed. I saw a lot of subs going in on both the offense and defense and not much of a difference in play. What’s scary is that you all will get better each week. Not sure about your passing game yet. I think it’s there, I can’t wait to see it develop in the coming weeks..#21 looks like a playmaker, #19 is big and strong with good hands…and the tall receiver that caught the first touchdown against Lassiter look very promising as well. Good luck to you all this year and look forward to a great season.
