Provine vs. Terry
Terry traveled to the North Jackson Field for a JPS Showdown against the Rams of Provine.
The Bulldogs received the ball to start the Game of the Week, with a run by Terry QB Ashton Fair setting up a great opportunity on their opening possession.
Just a few plays later, Fair fired a laser over the middle to RJ Hall who brought two defenders along for the ride and fought his way to the goal line for the opening score of the game.
After that, scoring was hard to find for both teams thanks to great defensive plays.
The Rams’ offense, which struggled all night, did make a final drive attempt to win the game, but the Bulldogs defense prevailed, leading Terry to a 6-0 victory.
Terry head coach Kris Thigpen says he’s glad his team pulled out the close win.
“We gotta play better. We gotta play with better technique... We got a lot to clean up, but I’m proud of our defense,” Thigpen said. “Our defense stood strong all night, made stops, and made plays. It was a hard-fought game for both teams, but I’m glad we came out on the winning end.
