to play with a running clock with no halftime and no time
Since school was in session on Friday, it was deter
mined to be in the best interest of the athletes to end the
game as soon as possible, so they would have ample rest
time to attend classes on the next day.
"Our guys learned some lessons about adversity on
that night," said Coach Rod Dunlap of Reynolds. "They
learned that you have to be prepared to play regardless of
any unanticipated situations you might face.
"With all the starting and stopping we had to do, it
wasn't the same feel you would have for a normal football
game. In spite of all that, our kids still gave it their best
On Reynolds' first offensive possession of the game,
Mysta Goodloe fired a pass to Trejan Cannon on a slant
route and Cannon broke a tackle, which resulted in a 40
yard touchdown and a 7-0 lead.
The Demons added another score in the second quarter
when Adonis Jones ran 10 yards for a touchdown to give
his team a 13-8 lead at the half. On that drive, Rashon
Bethea caught passes fromGoodloe and Charlie
Mensh to keep the drive going,
i After a scoreless thirdquarter. Southern
Alamance delivered what proved to be the go-ahead
touchdown and conversion to go back in front at 16-13 in
the fourth quarter. The Patriots were on the brink of put
ting the game away when they drove the ball inside the
Demons' 5-yard line.
t On fourth-and-goal from the one-yard line, the
Reynolds defense stuffed Southern Alamance on a quar
terback sneak. The Demons took over with 1:25 left to
play with 99 yards to go.
Under ordinary circumstances, this would've been
enough time for a hurry-up offense to put together a game
winning drive. But with a running clock and no time-outs,
there wasn't much Reynolds could do as far as game strat
egy. The Demons ran three plays and then ran out of time.
"Our record is 0-2, but there are lot of reasons why
we're very positive about where we are as a team," said
Dunlap. "We eliminated some of the problems with fum
bled snaps that we had in our first game.
"Now it's a matter of everyone getting in sync. It took
us a few weeks, but now I feel like we have the right
pieces in place on the offensive line and that's going to
make a huge difference."
