BY TIMOTHY RAMSEY THE CHRONICLE ? The first game of the year usually comes with some nervousness and a few mental errors as the players knock the rust off from the summer. Last Thursday, Glenn's JV was able to overcome the rust and pull out a victory against North Forsyth, 14 to 6. Neither team was able to establish any sort of continu ity on offense during the first half qf play. North was unable to get out of its own way with botched center to quarterback exchanges, missed assignments on the offen sive line and key turnovers. Glenn was able to drive the ball into North territory multiple times in the first half but kept coming up empty. Glenn's defense was the most con sistent group on the field all night.

They had issues just snapping the ball from under center and when they seemed to have some momentum late in the first half, starting running back Semaj Transou had to leave the game due to injury. Following the injury to Transou, the Vikings were not able to move the ball on the ground. The first half of play ended with a 0-0 score.
