TALLAHASSEE, FLA. (franchisesportsonline.net)– The Madison County Cowboys started the first half strong, leading 7-3 on the road at Florida High on Friday night. Both teams have a 2-0 record so far this season. They gave it their all during the first half, but the Cowboys were able to execute more successfully.
During the second quarter, the Cowboys played efficiently by earning five first downs, which helped them earn their first touchdown. At the 11-yard line there was a 5-yard penalty on the Cowboys and that gave them the advantage to move to the 6-yard line. Then, running back Teryon Henderson dove to the Seminole three. At the 2-yard line, freshman quarterback Tre Adams was able to convert the ball to wide receiver Tinarus Irvine, making the touchdown with 9:50 left in the second quarter.
The Seminoles did not let the touchdown bring them down. The Cowboys had possession of the ball, but with three minutes and forty-four seconds left Henderson fumbled the ball and defensive end Jourdan Jones was able to recover, giving the Seminoles possession. They did not take advantage of the fumble. Florida was able to gain possession once again with an interception by Kevin Sawyer with only thirty-eight seconds remaining in the second quarter. With only three seconds left in the half, Mike Greaves kicked a 43-yard field goal, giving the Seminoles three points at half.
