Over the years, the games between these two teams have been competitive. This time last year, Nation Ford was up 27-6 before Forestview rallied to tie the game 27-27. The Jaguars would, however, lose the game 34-27. This game saw no such results. The Falcons jumped out to a 21-0 half-time lead and didn’t look back as the Falcons hammered Forestview 38-0.
The Falcons got on the board with a Dalton Helms one-yard pass to A.K. McCoy. The Jaguars would drive deep into Falcons territory, but were stopped and the 25-yard field goal was no good. The Falcons were just getting started. Helms extended the Falcons lead when he faked a handoff and dashed around left tackle and alluded tacklers for a 70-yard touchdown run. Corey Condron’s extra point made it 14-0.
With time running out and being backed up by penalties, the Falcons put another score on the board when Helms hit Dijuan Ussery for a 30-yard touchdown pass.
The Jaguars would continue to move the ball in the second half, but could not complete a drive. Forestview was stopped near the 30-yard line of Nation Ford on fourth-and-two. Things kept on going the Falcons way. Helms connected with McCoy again, this time for a 70-yard touchdown reception.
Condron got in the fun with a 23-yard field-goal to put the Falcons up 31-0. Helms put up his fifth touchdown of the night with a one-yard plunge up the middle into the end-zone.
“We challenged our team.” Falcons head coach Michael Allen said “We didn’t do well in the jamboree. (Tonight) we were catching the ball better, had better pass coverage. We executed better.”
“We are evolving offensively and defensively.” Allen said “We just have to get better and take what the other team gives us. (Forestview) is pretty good. We respect them. They work hard and they don’t quit.”
Nation Ford has now taken three straight games from Forestview. The Falcons will be home again as they host Boiling Springs. Forestview will be home against Clover.
