Carver ends season with loss against South Stokes
BY TTMOTOY RAMSEY
This JV season for the
Carver Yellowjackets has
been somewhat of a tumul
tuous one. They started off
the season not being able to'
play their first four games
due to lack of players then
somewhat rebounded to
finish 2-4 for the year
while only having around
20 players on the roster.
Last Thursday night
they attempted to close out
the season on a high note
with a .victory against
South Stokes, but the fipal
score was 34-20, with
Carver on the losing end.
From the onset of the
' game, the Sauras wanted to
establish their running
game which they did on the
first drive of the game. It
seemed as though the
toughness of South Stokes
caught the Carver defense
off guard and they surren
dered a touchdown to the
Sauras on that drive to face
an early deficit.
Carver could not gener
ate any offensive continu
ity in the first quarter,
which fit right into the
hands of the South Stokes
offense. By running the
ball so effectively, the
Sauras accomplished two
goals; chewing up time on
the clock and tiring the
Carver defense, which
includes many players that
go both ways.
Early in the second
quarter, South Stokes went
ahead 14-0 using the run
ning game once again.

'Take it one game at a time" and "We want to go 1-0
every week" are normal cliche's that many coaches tell
their players year after year. For Mt. Tabor, they not only
went 1-0 every week, they did so in impressive fashion in
The Spartans finished the season with a perfect 9-0
record. Earlier this season, head coach Mike Lovelace
said he felt this team was special and had the potential to
win all of their games if his team bought in to the coaching
and played all out.
"It's an unbelievable feeling and these kids have
worked their rear ends off," Lovelace said. "They've
earned this and have come a long way since day one."
Mt. Tabor kicked off the season with a hard fought vic
tory over Reagan by the score of 21-7. They proceeded to
blow out their next five opponents by very large margins.
None of their opponents during that stretch scored more
than 12 points while the Spartans scored at least 34 points
in every contest.
The Spartans were blessed to have a multitude of big
play athletes that can play multiple positions. Jaquan
Albright who lined up at wide receiver, running back and
quarterback made dynamic plays all season long. He
always seemed to be in the right place at the right time or
made that last man miss to free him for the long, touch
Zyquez McMillan was also a bright spot for the
Spartans. He seemed to make all the big catches most of
the season and was the perfect compliment to Albright.
McMillan was very dangerous in the open field rarely
being taken down by one defender.
Quarterback Andrew Muse was the perfect signal
caller for his team. He made clutch throws in many of
their games and was not scared to have the ball in his
