Class A roundup: Bobcats, Patriots victorious

By Score Atlanta

Mount Pisgah 26, Wilson (Ala.) 7: Aaron Winchester threw three touchdown passes to lead visiting Mount Pisgah. Ian Ainsworth contributed on both sides of the football and forced an early fumble that Jacob Delk recovered and ran in for a 40-yard Patriots touchdown. A missed PAT kept the score 6-0, but Winchester scrambled to find Ainsworth for the first of his three touchdown throws to increase the lead to 12-0. Patrick Messinger caught a 40-yard touchdown pass in the second half.

Our Lady of Mercy 22, Pace Academy 14: Host Our Lady of Mercy never trailed in a game during which neither offense could get in a rhythm. The Bobcats fumbled twice, once leading to Pace’s first touchdown and the second leading to a touchdown of their own, after one of their players picked up the fumble and took it to the 1-yard line. On Pace Academy’s final drive, the Bobcats had two sacks to preserve the victory. Knights’ quarterback Kevin Johnson completed 11 of 24 passes for 84 yards and two scores. Trevor Cefalu led Pace Academy with seven receptions and he caught one of Johnson’s touchdowns.

Whitefield Academy 18, Gordon Lee 0: Quarterback Everett Pollard rushed for one score and Lawrence Waters returned an interception 25 yards for a touchdown to lead the Wolfpack over the previously unbeaten Trojans. Whitefield Academy evens its mark at 2-2 and will play at Fellowship Christian next week.

What the heck is going on with Pace. One second, they seem like they’re one of the best teams in the state capable of giving ELCA a game, and now they seem average at best. Do they have some injuries or something? OLM was due for a victory. Very easily could be 3-1.

Side note, Pisgah beat AAAA Wilson High School (Alabama) on the road 26-7. Tied for best start in program’s history at 4-0.

Kevin Johnson is only 5′-7.75″ tall and can’t throw over middle and dumps off ball for +/-7 yd gains. He is overrated and offense depends on him too much and no defense or line!

Holy Innocents gave us a game down in Eagles Landing. Those boys are physical and play extremely hard. I was scared for a little when they took the ball and stuffed it down our throats for the first touchdown.

Last night Pace looked confused, players didn’t know where to line up, players were shouting at each other, they really looked uncoached. OLM defense looked strong. The results really surprised me.

@deehunter – Nonsense. Johnson is about 5-9 and has a cannon. Don’t know which qb you been watching. He’s not a D1 major prospect because of his height. But he can make all the throws. OLM did a good job of mixing coverages and their #2 (that kid is good!) blanketed his main deep threats – #2 and #3. Plus his line is young and has some work to do in pass pro, and his OC puts him in bad spots, too many shotgun no back packages, and not enough running plays. He has 2 200-pound backs and they probably had 10 carries between them against OLM.

John Elway couldn’t win a SB until Terrell Davis came to Denver and gave him a running game, yet you think a high school junior is supposed to carry his team without one? Go learn football and come back.

Don’t know what’s happened to Pace these last weeks…With Staples we really should be running the ball a lot more cause it works. Kevin Johnson’s dad is offensive coordinator though so we all know how that’ll work.

@Cold Hard Facts – OLM did a good job of showing Pace different looks and executing, plus they are very athletic. #2 and #3 are usually able to get deep and make big plays, but the OLM secondary did a great job, especially their #2. The kid is a baller!

@Go Chargers, thanks for the shout out, but the Chargers will repeat. Great O and D lines, QB is an athlete and winner, #45 is a player; team is very well coached….Didn’t like the ending tho, got a bit ugly, and the deep pass with 4 mins left up 20 a bit bush. Otherwise, nice victory for the Chargers.

JoCo looked great beating Savannah Christian. A member of the chain crew was kicked out of the game. He was moving the chains illegally. Yikes! Be aware of the chain crew when in Savannah.
