AHS and DVHS Come Out on Top in Last Friday’s Football Games 9/5/14

Antioch 21, Granada 6: The Panthers topped the host Matadors in a defensive battle.

Michael Gray put the Panthers on the board first with a 3-yard run, finally breaking the 0-0 tie with 3:21 left in the first half. The two-point conversion was carried in by Najee Harris, putting them up 8-0.

Granada answered with a 4-yard run from Jonathan Davis but failed to get the two extra points, and the Matadors trailed 8-6 at halftime.

The third quarter was another scoreless one, but Harris came alive for Antioch in the fourth, running in from 13 and 40 yards out to put the Panthers up 21-6.

Harris finished the night with 27 carries for 262 yards and two scores. It was also a great effort for the Antioch defense, which forced a fumble and had two interceptions. Gray had three sacks for the Panthers.

Deer Valley 13, Oakland Tech 6: Deer Valley’s Rai-shyan Alexander ran for 193 yards and two touchdowns as the Wolverines preserved a home win over Oakland Tech.

Alexander’s continuous power runs during a late second-quarter drive and in the first possession after halftime helped the Wolverines break a scoreless tie. His 36-yard run helped Deer Valley take a 13-0 lead with 8:10 left in the third quarter.

The penalty-filled game would stay at that score until business picked up with 3:30 left in the game. On a second-down play from its own 17-yard-line, Oakland Tech saw quarterback Surako Follings throw a long pass up the right sideline for Kenyon Jackson. Jackson tipped the pass up in the air, snatched it out of the air over a Deer Valley defender and broke free for the score.

After a three-and-out and with no timeouts, the Bulldogs had the ball at their 28 with 1:45 left. The Wolverines defensive line made it uncomfortable for Follings, forcing a 23-yard loss on an intentional grounding penalty and three incomplete passes to notch the victory.

Jerald Daniels led Oakland Tech with 60 yards rushing.
