Carrollton won easily. Some starters played into early 4th, but subs rotating entire 2nd half. Don’t think starting QB played at all second half. Alexander’s RB padded his stats in the 4th against JV and 9th graders.

Hey Trojan fan why did any starters play at all in the second half? Probably running up the score?

The JV played Thursday so there was some limitations to how much they could play. They also need to play some as they haven’t played much in 3rd or 4th quarter this year. They will need a full game effort this week for SC.

All areas were clicking with the Trojans last night. Should be a great night of football come next Friday!
Go Trojans!

@Go Trojans! The week starts on Friday not Thursday changed a couple years ago so now if a player plays too much your forfiet the JV game. Coaches like it better that way doesn’t screw up a region for a small oversite. So they can play as many quarters as needed on Friday and then sit during the very less important JV game.
Just passing on information not judging.

Football Guy-if Carrollton wanted to run up the score they would have scored 7 more tds rather than 2. Evidently Alexander had rather get yards and points against reserves than let their own reserves in the game.

Backer – thanks. I don’t confess to follow all the rules so appreciate it. I know once they play on Thursday they do limit them somewhat on Friday. Maybe its more a safety thing than an actual rule.

Maybe Carrollton just wanted to kick Alexander’s tail….who knows?

Sandy Creek 42 LaGrange 7

Setting the stage for a huge showdown next week, the Sandy Creek Patriots struck early and often against LaGrange, cruising to a 42-7 win over the Grangers on Senior Night in Tyrone.

Ranked first in the state in AAAA, the Patriots (7-0-1, 5-0) travel to Carrollton next Friday to face the second-ranked Trojans, who are coming off a 63-21 dismantling of Alexander.

Sandy Creek amassed 322 yards of offense in the first half on the way to a 35-0 lead at intermission. The entire second half was played using a running clock.

The Patriots took the opening kickoff and wasted no time finding the end zone, as Delvin Weems capped off a nine-play drive with a 1-yard touchdown run.

After a short punt, Sandy Creek took over at the LaGrange 31 late in the first quarter. On first down at the 20, quarterback Cole Garvin rolled right and connected with Jacari Brooks in the corner of the end zone to make it 14-0 before the first period ended.

Weems broke free early in the second quarter, finding the left sideline and outracing everyone for a 64-yard scoring burst. That put him over 100 yards for the night. Three plays later, Al Cooper recovered a LaGrange fumble at the Grangers’ 27, and Eric Swinney exploded up the middle on first down to give the Patriots a four-touchdown lead.

The next drive started 93 yards from the goal line, but on first down Garvin hit Demarre Kitt over the middle for a 70-yard gain. Swinney carried the ball on the next two plays, scoring on a 16-yard run.

The score was 35-0 before LaGrange was able to pick up a first down. The Grangers finally put together a drive just before halftime, taking the ball as far as the Sandy Creek 12 before the Patriots’ defense pushed back and got a sack on fourth down to take the ball back.

LaGrange got a score late in the third quarter on an 8-yard run by Benny Gray, the first play after an 80-yard interception return by Corey Perkins.

Freshman Marvin Hubbard scored the game’s final touchdown on a 7-yard run, and Lorenzo Broadwater kicked his sixth extra point of the night as time expired

It appears that there was an incident at BTW with the football team and their punishment was a one game suspension which prevented them playing against Carver which they had to forfeit.

If this was true, then the football players did something really dumb in my opinion.

As a Carver alumnus I wanted to see both teams settle it on the football field and not creating an incident at BTW high school.

Wonder who checks on how much the JV players played on Thursday. Just asking

you can’t tell the JV their game doesn’t matter. The kids grow up playing together, depending on each other and learning to win together. That’s why some programs win year after year. If you get lucky you’ll have a few athletes come thru together. This is the first time in years ,that Carrollton has several D-1 athletes. There is a difference between out ” athlete”ing the competition and out “program”ing the completion.

I don’t think folks check that much on the JV game but I’ve known some coaches to bring it up against the other team. It’s generally an honor system for the coaches. The only ones who watch the JV are the mom’s and dad’s so doubt they would report their own kids.

Regardless, per the coach – Carrollton was subbing out in the 2nd half pretty regularly.

It’s game week for SC now. That’s what is important.

Told ya Combs – the head coach for Alexander – was an awful coach. He has a great bunch of young guys but has NO clue how to coach. You take the Carrollton coaches and put them as Alexander coaches or and it would be Alexander winning. Carrollton coaches are the only difference. They know how to coach the kids and Combs does not. That simple. The athletes are at Alexander, just no coaching. Combs is Pathetic

Example? Doing a high short kickoff and giving Carrollton the ball on the 45 to start off, the doing and onside with the score 21-7 giving the ball to Carrollton the ball on their 45. Just plain ignorant coaching!!

@alexander the great I was scratching my head at the fact that land-davis and #25 are not in the backfield at the same time splitting carries.

@Trojan94 — Alexander scored on a deep pass. If there is one thing you’re not going to do is beat Carrollton’s (first team) defense running the ball. That’s the only reason Sandy Creek is still scary.

A big underdog will take chances like onsides kicks-I think they were desperate early. When your star back has 20+ yards in the first half youve got a problem. No team has ground out tds on the ground against Carrollton but SC is a different challenge-probably the best offensive line and most talented backfield the Trojans have faced this season. Game will be televised on CSS sports but theres nothing like being there.

Man Stone Mountain got the hammer put on them; no problem with the head coach but as for the other so called coaches did you blame the refs for this performance like you did in the Chamblee game…Coach do yourself a favor and get rid of those clowns they should be charged just for standing on the sideline
