TCHS Senior Night Thrills and Frustrations

Ten Toombs County Bulldog Seniors wanted to win their final game in Booster Stadium. However, Tattnall County scored touchdowns  in the first and second quarters and a field goal in the fourth in a 17-8 victory. All eight Bulldog points were scored by senior Jordan Usher. The quarterback/receiver caught a 13-yard touchdown pass from Dalton McBride with 1:25 remaining in the fourth quarter and then Usher moved to quarterback and pushed his way in to the end zone for the two-point conversion.

The Bulldogs opened the game stopping the Warriors on three plays and then they took the ball and drove to the Warrior’s 42 with a chance to pick up a first down. A fumble ended the drive. Later in the quarter Darius Mincey raced through the line of scrimmage and pulled away for a 68-yard touchdown run. A Warrior PAT made it 7-0 with 3:51 to play in the first quarter.

Late in the second quarter Mincey broke off another big run which set up a 14-yard TD run by quarterback Craige Saxton with 2:52 to play in the half. Another Tattnall extra point gave the Warriors a 14-0 lead.

Toombs put together a drive in the waning moments of the first half. The Bulldogs moved down to the Warrior. But, the scoring opportunity ended with a Warrior interception.

Tattnall County kicked a 29-yard field goal with 10:34 left in the fourth quarter. The Dawgs missed a 36-yard field goal in the first half.

“I’m going to miss playing football with my teammates, especially the seniors,” Usher said. “I have been playing with them since my freshman year and middle school years. I am going to take this game seriously, like I took the others, and get a W.”

Chubb added, “I like playing with my teammates, we’re a brotherhood. We never stop playing for each other.” Kent said, “It’s going to be a tough night. But, I am going to enjoy playing my last home game with these seniors.” All the seniors have improved as players during their careers. “When I first got here I was a defensive line, offensive guard type and as the years went on I lost some weight and picked up some speed and they moved me to fullback,” Jones said.
