South Pointe 26, Rock Hill 15
In a game that seemed to come down to one play, South Pointe outlasted Rock Hill in Friday night’s contest and escaped with its second win of the season, 26-15.
Through three quarters, the contest was largely defined by penalties and turnovers — five turnovers, in fact, between the two teams. The only plays of interest up until this point came in the form of a Stallion touchdown pass from Tahleek Steele to Waymond Jenerette (7-0); a Steele pass to O’mega Blake for a 29-yard score (14-3); and a Tylik Edwards kick return for a touchdown for Rock Hill (14-9).
Come the fourth quarter, though, game-changing plays started taking place: South Pointe fumbled within its own five-yard-line, a mistake Rock Hill later capitalized on to take the lead (15-14). Then, the ensuing possession, South Pointe had a field goal blocked, but senior Kobe Shannon picked up the loose ball and ran 38 yards for a touchdown, giving his team a lead it would never relinquish.
South Pointe’s Quay Chambers would later put the proverbial nail in the coffin with a 55-yard touchdown run late in the fourth. The score didn’t budge from there. 26-15, South Pointe.
