On their first possession of the third quarter, the Hornets built on their substantial lead over the Tigers. In a drive of just two plays, Roswell advanced the line of scrimmage from their own 42-yard line to the endzone thanks to a 45-yard scramble from senior running back Sheldon Evans and a touchdown reception by senior wide receiver Jayden Comma. Roswell’s last two touchdowns of the night were both quarterback keeps—one from senior Malik Willis in the third quarter, and one from junior Walt Warren in the fourth.
Defensively, the Hornets didn’t allow their opponents any daylight. The defense’s first safety of the season came in the second quarter as the Tigers were pushed back 12 yards into their own endzone by senior defensive end Justin Ellis. Archer only came within scoring range one time, in the final minutes of the fourth quarter. Ending things on a high note, the Roswell defense was able to force a turnover on downs and dash the last hopes of Archer scoring at all in the game.
Looking ahead on the schedule, Roswell will take to the road to play rival Milton on Sept. 30. Region play begins on Oct. 14 as the team returns home to square off against Lassiter.
