Game Recap

The JV green Indians traveled to Mansfield to take on the Legacy Broncos in District 10-5A play. The Indians rallied for a thrilling 30-27 win to run their record to 5-3(4-1 district) on the season. The Indians gave up 3 first half touchdowns on a long passing TD and 2 special teams turnovers that led to Bronco scores, but the defense stiffened in the second half only allowing one score and providing a red zone stand in the final 3 minutes to preserve the victory. Offensively, the Indians piled up big rushing yards from Eric Johnson(2 TD’s) and Jhamarian Sargent to fuel a four touchdown comeback attack. QB Jordan Fay threw a touchdown and rushed for another. The receivers were led by key receptions from Tanner Gattin(1 TD) and Keyshawn Anderson as the Indians overcame deficits of 20-8 and 27-16 to pull out the victory.
