Big third quarter lifts Imps past Catamounts

October 16, 2011
By David Maney II of Cary High School



CARY - Up to the half-time break, with the game tied at 7, there were no offensive scores.

That changed in the third quarter as Cary posted two offensive touchdowns, then the strong CHS defense clamped down to hold Panther Creek at bay securing a big 19-7 Tri-9 conference win on the road.

Offensively Cary posted 240 yards on 54 plays, while the defense held Panther Creek to 135 yards (50 rushing, 85 passing)

Panther Creek (5-2, 6-3) started the scoring when Dorrel McClain stepped in front of Connor Chase pass at midfield stripe then returned it 50 yards for a Catamount touchdown.  Garrett Lang converted on the extra point attempt making it 7-0, PC, with just :13 seconds left in the opening quarter.

CHS wasted little time correcting their scoring deficit as Caleb Glass, starting from his own 8 yard line, took the ensuing kick-off back 92 yards for the score.  A Drew McCarty PAT tied the game up at 7 with :01 seconds left in the first quarter.

Only other scoring opportunity for either team came with 3:43 left in the half as Lang missed a 47 yard field goal attempt to the right giving the ball back to the Imps at the 20.

That is where the half came to end with the game tied at 7, as both teams went into the locker rooms.

PCHS started the second half with the ball, but after Catamount running back David Mayaka moved the ball up to the PCHS 40 and a first down for the Catamounts, on the very next play, he coughed up the ball and Anthony Sonnier recovered for the Imps at midfield.

It took only 3 plays, and :53 second, for Cary (4-2, 6-2) to score the first of two rushing touchdowns in the quarter after recovering the turnover.

On first down, DeAndre Henry started the drive rushing for 3 yards setting up a 2nd-and-7 for CHS.  On second down, Chase found his Tight End Jackson Gomez down the right side for a 42 yard pass play to the PCHS 4.  From there Henry punched it in from 4 yrds out.  The McCarty PAT was no good leaving the score, 13-7, CHS, with 9:31 left in the third.

After Cary forced a Panther Creek 3-and-out on their next possession, the Imps traveled back down field scoring again, this time in 5 plays covering 86 yrds taking 2:07 off the clock.


Cary started their drive from their own 14, where Henry opened the drive getting around the edge and scampering 12 yards to the CHS 26 and another first down.  Marquise Sherrod-Cooper got the call next cutting up the middle for a five yard gain to the CHS 31.

Cary were called for two penalties on the next three plays setting up a 3-15 from their own 21, where Chase found Gomez again, this time for 27 yards and a first down to the CHS 48.

From there Sherrod-Cooper did the rest as he broke through the PC defensive line

cutting toward the left sidelines and running 52 yards for the score.  The 2-point conversion failed, leaving the score Cary 19, Panther Creek 7, with 5:22 left in the third

That is where the Cary defense took over forcing two Catamount turnovers and holding Panther Creek scoreless securing their road victory over PCHS.
