SHELBY
From 1B
find Tavorris Jolly in the
end zone behind two KM
defenders for a 44-yard
touchdown pass and a 24-3
lead.
A 52-yard field goal
attempt by Ingle with nine
seconds left in the half was
wide left.
The Mountaineers looked
like an entirely different
team in the second half. The
offense moved the ball and
the defense almost com-
pletely took away Shelby’s
bread and butter play, the
buck sweep.
KM'’s Drew Gibson sacked
Brooks to force a punt on
Shelbys first possession of
the second half, and Kings
Mountain used strong
blocking by its offensive
line and fullback J.J.
McClain to start springing
Sidney Goode for big gains
on power sweeps. Goode,
... who finished with a career
high 135 yards rushing,
scored on a 34-yard run to
cut the Shelby margin to 24-
10 with 4:07 left in the third
period.
While the Mountaineers
were having better success
against the Shelby defense,
their own defense was still
having trouble stopping the
Lions and the second half
turned into a touchdown .
trading game.
Shelby responded to
Goode’s TD by marching 66
yards to score on a seven
yard run by Jolly which
made the score 31-10.
Kings Mountain drove 67
yards early in the fourth
quarter and Goode scored
from three yards out to
make the score 31-17.
Shelby recovered an
onside kick at the KM 49
and Brooks immediately hit
sophomore wide receiver
Patrick Tate for 37 yards to
set up Jolly's 12-yard touch-
down run which gave the
Lions a 38-17 lead.
Kings Mountain drove 42
yards for its final touch-
down, with quarterback
Montrell Banks completing
three passes to set up a
seven-yard touchdown run
by Goode with 2:58 remain-
ing.
Farquharson said the
coaches challenged the
Mounties at halftime to
come out and play better
and try to get in a position
to win.
“And they did that,” he
said, “but we're not to the
point where we can afford
to trade score for score with
somebody. When they
decide they want to put
together two halves of play-
ing both good offense and
good defense they're going
to be a good football tam.
They showed signs ofa
good football team but.
they've got to get past that
hurdle.
“I think we did some
things that were very posi-
tive,” he added. “We threw
for a hundred yards and
when you're able to run the
sweep on Shelby with the
kind of speed they have on
the outside that’s got to be a
positive. We've got to get
better at doing that. We have
to establish a run and com-
plete a high percentage of
passes, then we'll be a little
bit better balanced.”

FOARD
From 1B
28-6 and South Point 49-0).
Two weeks ago they lost a
heartbreaker to Gastonia
Forestview 17-12 and last
week they recovered from a
sluggish start to put up an
impressive second half
showing in a 38-24 loss to
Shelby.
Foard, typically a running
team in the past, has been
throwing the ball more this
year and that concerns
Farquharson, whose team
has given up 727 yards
through the air in four
games, including 322 to East
Gaston and 189 to Shelby.
Van Proctor, a four-year
starter, is the Tigers” quarter-
back.
“They have a very good
passing game,” says
Farquharson. “That seems to
be their strength. He's tall
and throws the ball well and
that’s one of the things that
has given us some trouble.
That's an area we have to
improve on.”
The Tigers, coming off a 2-
9 season, are 1-3. They
defeated West Lincoln 30-14
in their opener but have lost
consecutive games to
Bunker Hill 14-7, Maiden 48-
16 and Bandys 56-21.
“They've played some
good teams,” Farquharson
said. “So it’s going to be one
of those situations where
our kids have to come to
play.”
Convincing his players
that they have to get off to a
good start is something
Farquharson said the coach-
es have dealt with all year
without success.
“We're going to have to
work on convincing them
that this is a new and
improved Fred T. Foard,”

Farquharson said. “It’s not
going to be a cakewalk by
any stretch of the imagina-
tion.”
Farquharson said he plans
some personnel changes this
week in hopes of returning
to more of a two-platoon
system. John Gwinn, who
has been a backup line-
backer and fullback, will
move into a defensive tackle
position, defensive end
Steven Grant will move to
linebacker, and Aaron
Bolton will move back to his
corner position.
“We've got those offensive
linemen pretty secure in
their position, so we're
going to roll some young
kids in there on defense to
give us more of a pass rush
and give us more pressure
on he quarterback,”
Farquharson said.
This will be Foard’s home-
coming game, and
Farquharson figures that
. will also help motivate the
Tigers.
“I expect them to be excit-
ed,” he said. “I think they
feel like after watching us
that they can play with us
and beat us. So we've got
our work cut out.”
