Reynolds remains unbeaten no more BY TIMOTHY RAMSEY THE CHRONICLE Coming into Monday's game between Mt. Tabor and Reynolds, there was a lot of hype from both sides. Each team boasting an undefeated record was con fident in their ability to win. Mt. Tabor put any hopes of a Demon victory to bed early as they went on to defeat Reynolds 49-0. Mt. Tabor jumped on Reynolds early as they went up 7-0 just minutes into the first quarter. Following an interception by the Demons, the Spartans methodically drove the ball right down the field and quarterback Andrew Muse hooked up with wide receiver Jaquan Albright on a slant pattern that gave them a 13-0 with less than five minutes gone in the first quarter. Reynolds has been relying on their running game all season, and it has served them well. Their version of the Wing T offense has been bruising, with running backs Shaheim Revel and Desmond Hood. Unfortunately, the Spartan defense was up to the task and held them at bay all game long. Muse connected with Zyquez McMillan at the beginning of the second quarter for another score, which put them up by three touchdowns. Reynolds led several drives into Spartan territory, but penalties and turnovers were their Achilles heel throughout. Albright, who also took snaps at quarterback, scored late in the second quarter to stretch the lead to 28-0 at the half. Mt. Tabor head coach Mike Lovelace said he was a bit worried how his team would come out and play early with their lack of practice the pre v i o u s week. He said he chal Ip n op H ,V"6V" his team before the game and says they executed very well. "If they were going to play us man-to-man on the backside, we were going to be able to take advantage of that," said Lovelace. Our quarterback, Andrew Muse, did a phenomenal job, and we were able to spread it out all over. I just thought we played a well rounded game and our defense was outstanding and I'm just proud of them." After Reynolds returned the second half kickoff to midfield, they had great starting field position to start their drive. mi. laDor s defense was up to the task as the drive was stopped uthpn linp. ??

Muse threw his third touchdown pass-of the game when he fired a dart to Brendan Stokes, who did the heavy lifting and scampered 76 yards for the score. Muse said at Mt. Tabor they come out to win every game and he knows they will have a dogfight in their next game against West Forsyth. "I just told our guys to 49-0 stay together as a unit because we have our plays down in practice that we rep, and rep and rep," said Muse. "I was worried about that as much I just wanted us to stay in unity as a team." Rashad Hague was able to get in on the scoring when he scampered multi ple defenders into the end zone to give the Spartans a commanding 42-0 lead at the end of the third. Officials decided to have a running clock to start the fourth quarter as the game was out of reach. The Reynolds offense con tinued to play hard but could not figure out the Spartan defense. Mt. Tabor took over after a turnover on downs and ran much of the clock out until Kamari Brooks broke free and ran it in for a 49-0 lead, which wound up being the final score. Reynolds head coach Rod Dunlap said Mt. Tabor is a great team and his guys showed their immaturity and overconfidence with having an undefeated record. "The guys thought we were just going to show up and not have to play hard and they are going to lay down. It did not happen," Dunlap said. "They keyed in on our backs and with our offense, we cannot play behind the sticks. Our team can learn preparation from this loss, and it does n't come from talking, it comes from playing. This game humbled us, and I expect us to bounce back from it." North Forsyth fights back late to tie game with Southern Guilford BY TIMOTHY RAMSEY THE CHRONICLE : When Southern Guilford jumped out to an early 2-0 lead, things looked bleak for the Vikings. Undeterred, North Forsyth fought back to tie the game at 2 during the second half. Each team had their chances to take the lead, but the game ended in a 2-2 tie. At the start of the game, Southern Guilford immediately looked to attack the Viking defense. "Early Tfi tfie first half, Storm striker Daniel Duran broke free from the Viking defenders and scored. With a 1-0 lead, Southern Guilford's Zion Johnson split two defenders and beat the goalkeeper to put the Storm up 2-0. North Forsyth seemed to wake up after that point and began to move the ball around and put pressure on the Storm defense. After dribbling past a Storm defender. North Forsyth almost had their first goal of the game, but the ball was saved by defenseman Zack Marshall to preserve the 2-0 lead. Late in the first half, Rivaldo Mendoza scored for the Vikings with a header over the outstretched arms of the goalkeeper. North Forsyth head coach Dan Proctor says his team has not played in almost two weeks and was happy with the resolve they showed during the game. "We came out a little flat but I am very happy with how the guys responded," said Proctor. "They dug their heels in after giving up two goals and came out in the second half. They pressed and pressed. They worked their tails off." Proctor went on to say that his team was undefeat ed and they have not been behind much in any game. He says for his team to face adversity for the first time and not give up could not have made him any happier. The second half of play started the same as the first. Neither offense was able to establish any con sistent pressure early on. Viking striker Leo Rivas tied the game up later in the second half when he deflected the ball off of a Storm defender and got past the goalie. With the game tied at 2, the Vikings offense looked to keep the pressure on the Storm defenders. They controlled the ball much of the latter part of the second half, but did not score another goal. Both defens es tightened up, and the game ended in a 2-2 tie. Storm head coach Carlos Ruiz said both teams came into the game playing well and was glad his team played the right way. "We have a few more games to play, and 1 am glad my team is learning whether we win or tie," said Rivas. "My team played a strong game, and I am very glad they are learning to play the right way." Coach Proctor added, "Maybe we took it for granted in the beginning of the game and did not come out the intensity we should have. Hopefully, this can be a learning experience. Sometimes in order to finish out the season strong you have to have ups and downs and figure out how you are going to respond. Luckily we were able to do that without taking a loss so I'm really proud about the boys for that." t tvs' Phoyo by Timothy Ramsey' Diego Cortes, No. 8 in white, fights off two North Forsyth defenders as he attempts to gain control of the ball.
