Community Christian blasts Magnolia Legacy, 78-19

(Continued)

ORANGE —

CCS scored on the first play, kicked good and put the score at 62-6 with 9:21 left to go in the second quarter.

Legacy made two plays, fumbled the third, CCS recovered, and ran for another TD, made two more and showed themselves ahead 70-6 with 8:33 on the clock.

The little roly-poly CCS kick was stopped by the Legacy Lions on the 32 yard line. They made a short pass that gained them about eight yards, ran for 10 yards, the made a long pass that gave them another TD. Their attempt to run the PAT put them on the board at 70-12, CCS leading.

Dakota Alexander got the ball on the kick and ran almost 50 yards. Lawrence Gallow ran the ball across on the first play and the good PAT put the CCS Lions ahead 78-12. There was 5:22 left in the second quarter.

Legacy took the ball and in their longest possession of the night, ran nine plays to finally pass the ball for a touchdown play that, along with a successful run for the PAT gave them 19 points for the game. The score was 78-19, with 1:23 left on the clock.

Morris, of the CCS Lions took the kick and took off like a jet engine was in his shoes. Morris was clearly headed for the goal line when a Legacy Lion made a desperate grab and caught Morris’ shirttail.  The brakes went on and Morris was stopped cold, robbed of a brilliant touchdown run. All 12 players on the field appeared surprised; none more so than Morris.

CCS kept possession, and more or less ran the clock out. The game ended with the cooler of ice water dumped on an unsuspecting coach Larry Spears, Jr.

Winning this game gave CCS the championship in their district. It also gave them the opportunity to host the first round of their playoff games.
