CENTRAL FOOTBALL SECURES WIN AGAINST SODDY DAISY — Senior, Donovan Smith, running the ball down the line.

Keaton Hesson, Sports Writer

Coming off of a terrible loss from last week’s game against Franklin county’s inexorable offense, the Pounders held their ground and took a district game against Soddy Daisy High School.

Game by game, the guys have been getting better and better. The Central Pounders went rabid this game, with the defense having 7 sacks and 5 tackles for loss led by Senior, Chris Nichols. Nichols had 2 of those sacks and 2 of those big time negative yardage tackles. Senior, Kyree Steward, and Junior, Tyran Forte, also contributed to the defense, both making an interception each.

“We played way better and were way more focused as a team during this game,” shared Senior, Jamison Johnson.

There was also some major confidence boosts that occurred throughout the game. This includes Sophomore, Ronye Watson, completing 9 of his passes for 148 yards and 3 touchdowns, all while acquiring 88 yards on the ground after his 8 rushing attempts. Senior, Donovan Smith, had one of these touchdowns on a 27 yard touchdown pass; Smith had 2 rushes for 29 yards, and 8 receptions for 120 yards. Sophomore, Houstin Boykin, had one reception that went to the endzone, and Senior, Marquis high, had one rushing touchdown.

“I’m very proud of our team and how they used the Franklin County game as a learning experience, they worked and prepared very well for a Soddy Daisy football team,” Head Coach, Curt Jones mentioned.

The ending score to this game was 26 to 6. Fortunately, the Pounders had everything going right during the game. The team will be traveling to Hixson High School for their next district game, where they will be ready for another win.
