Hornets Suffer Tough Loss on the Road
MOULTRIE—Roswell travelled to South Georgia feeling confident and poised to beat Colquitt, coming off a overtime victory against Central Gwinnett. The two teams have had a bit of a history throughout the past couple of years as they faced off once in the 2015 state championship game from the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, and another time last season in Roswell, where the Hornets took home a commanding 34-3 victory. Unfortunately, the Hornets wouldn’t have the same success Friday night as the Packers defeated the Hornets 28-0 at Mack Tharpe Stadium.
Colquitt’s defense was superb holding Hornet’s to under 100 yards in the air and kept Roswell off of the scoreboard. Colquitt sophomore quarterback, JC Harden replaced senior quarterback, Steven Krajewski who left the game in the second quarter due to a neck contusion after being sacked on a 3rd-and-14 play. Harden completed a 15-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter to give the Packers a 14-0 lead at halftime. Colquitt halfback Ty Leggett single handedly carried by his team as he scored 2 of their 4 touchdowns and rushed for 185 of their 296 total rush yards.
Roswell junior running back, Kamonty Jett, has been impressive throughout the first three games of the season and rushed for 94 yards on 27 carries.
Roswell looks to rest up as they get a week off before facing the Archer Tigers for their home opener on Friday, September 22nd at 7:30 p.m. at Ray Manus Stadium.
