Friday, September 7, 2018

Two-way stars Micheal Webb and Ray Darden led the Ayden-Grifton Chargers to a 22-0 shutout home victory over rival Farmville Central on Friday night.

Webb, a junior first-team all-county selection with five interceptions last season, was an all-around standout with two picks in the first half, a 23-yard rushing touchdown in the third quarter and several impressive returns. Darden helped stifle the struggling Jags’ offense at middle linebacker and contributed hard-nosed running to the offense in short-yardage situations.

Brothers Sam and David Barrett were unable to break off any long runs against the Chargers’ defense, picking up just 21 yards on nine plays in the final three quarters.

Senior Charger quarterback Blake McLawhorn connected with Jeffrey Gunter for a 36-yard TD with 5:17 left in the second quarter to make the score 15-0. The following Jags’ drive ended in Webb’s second interception on a third-and-13.

The second half of the game was full of Jaguar injuries. Dontavious Short was helped off the field with seven minutes left in the third quarter after being hit on a short kickoff return. David Barrett was injured with about a minute left in the third after a short pass play by the Jags. With 5:42 left in the fourth quarter, Tavyon Suggs was helped off the field after a quarterback keeper. Quintaye Reid was carried off the field in the fourth after an injury in the end zone on an Farmville pass play. None of the players returned to the game.

ECU commit Keziah Everett was busy, generally making stops on A-G run plays around the line of scrimmage.

The Jags are a young squad, having lost a number of starters from last season. Sophomores Suggs and Short have assumed key roles. As with past years, Farmville Central’s offense is markedly run-centric. In their first three games, the Jaguars ran the ball on 105 plays while passing on just 32.

D.H. Conley 46, East Wake 7

The Vikings leveled their record at 2-2 following a big win over East Wake, 46-7. Conley quarterback Nick Hamilton shined, going 11-26, throwing for 262 yards and six touchdowns.

The Vikings receivers had a field day, with CJ Johnson leading the charge. He finished with four receptions for 162 yards and four touchdowns. Mark Warren, who finished with two receptions and 41 yards, and Zy Edwards, who finished with one reception for 23 yards, each scored one touchdown through the air. Jazion Daniels led the offense on the ground, gaining 48 yards on two rushes.

Muck Brown intercepted an East Wake pass and took it 37 yards for the score to help the Vikings keep their momemtum while on defense.

Conley will travel to West Craven in Week Five.
