The Toombs County junior varsity football team opened the season with a home loss to Swainsboro. However, since then these young Dawgs have won three games in a row and all on the road. Their latest victory, a 33-0 at East Laurens featured a potent passing game with sophomore quarterback Trey Cloud throwing three touchdown passes in the first half.
The Bulldogs scored twice on the ground and their defense was stifling, especially on first down. A string of first down TFL’s constantly made it second and long. The Red Bullets recovered two fumbles in the first half while not allowing the Falcons a single first down in the first 16-minute half. The Falcons reeled of their only three first downs of the game in one possession in the second half.
Cloud threw his first TD pass on Toombs County’s first offensive play- a 47-yard strike to J.D. Myers down the left sideline. Miguel Reyna kicked the PAT to make it 7-0 with 13:33 to play in the half.
Defensive lineman Angel Brown recovered a Falcon fumble at their 30 and on third down and goal Alex Hunt rammed the ball into the end zone for a 14-0 lead with 8:35 to go in the first half.
Cloud’s second touchdown pass was a short little toss to NyKwan Coleman. He caught it at the 40, threw a stiff arm at a Falcon and then raced down the sideline for a 48-yard TD and a 20-0 TCHS lead with 5:47 to play in the half.
Freshman Brandon Usher overpowered the Falcons’ quarterback and forced a fumble which he recovered at the Falcon 29. Cloud rewarded him for that defensive play with a 19-yard touchdown pass with :54 to play in the half.
Derrick Mincey scored the final Toombs County touchdown on a 50-yard run. Last week he had a safety at Tattnall County and this week the transfer from Jacksonville, Florida scored his first Bulldog touchdown.
