TALLAHASSEE, FLA., (www.franchisesportsonline.net) – The Godby Cougars overpowered Leon on both sides of the ball leading to a decisive win 57-0.
From the start of the first quarter, the Cougars were on fire. After forcing a quick three and out from Leon, Godby pounded the ball with Tyriq Parramore leading to their first touchdown of the game.
The Lions fought back on the next drive as Paxton Tomaini connected with DJ Campbell for a 48-yard play, but ultimately the drive was unsuccessful as Leon would miss a 26-yard field goal. Godby followed up with an 11-play drive, culminating in Trey Fisher touchdown to Jahiem Knight from 34 yards out.
After a Christion Williams interception, Fisher connected with junior Alvin Jones III for a 48-yard touchdown. The score was 18-0 at the end of the first quarter.
The second quarter saw much of the same. After three consecutive drives ending with punts, Godby was back on the board as senior running back Kamron Martin punched it in to make it 24-0. On the Lions’ next possession, Williams would get his second interception of the game. The Cougar offense would follow with a 64-yard sprint by junior running back Jaquez Yant for another score.
After another three and out from Leon, Fisher would get in the end zone one more time as he found Macho Arza from four yards out. At the half, the score was 37-0.
The third quarter started with a 60-yard bomb from Fisher to Jones III to make it 43-0. On their next drive, Parramore would get his second touchdown of the game to make it 50-0. Jahiem Knight would also score again late in the fourth, making the final score 57-0.
Fisher had a total of 316 passing yards and four passing touchdowns.
“Our receivers made all the plays, did most of the work, I was just the guy to throw them the ball,” Fisher said.
The Cougars rushing game was also crucial as they picked up nearly 200 rushing yards and another five touchdowns split between Knight, Yant, Martin, and Parramore.
Leon looks to bounce back from their two-game losing streak and get above .500 next week against Gateway in Kissimmee. Godby will be happy to play their first home game next week against Titusville.
