Cards football downs the Falcons in rain delayed contest
September 10, 2012By Nick Holland of Southport High School
The football team overcame a postponement of their game on Friday to beat southside rival Perry Meridian by a score of 33-14.
Head coach Mr. Bill Peebles was happy with the way his team came out on the second day and handled the game.
“We were very resilient,” Peebles said. “To come back on the second day and execute so well in a highly emotional game is really good for the team.”
Stepping up for the Cards were senior quarterback and wide receiver Robert Webb and David Boyer. Webb earned player of the game for the Cards with his 13-15 100yd performance. He also added one TD in the air and three on the ground.
Defensively the Cards “struggled” on Friday, but were able to fix their mistakes and come back with a strong performance on Saturday. Peebles directly attributes the success of the team on Saturday to outstanding performances by junior safety David Simmons and sophomore corners Darius Bryant and Donovan Millbrook.
Despite the win though, everything did not go perfectly for the Cards. Peebles believes they could still execute certain things better in the scouting reports and pay more attention to details. He plans to work on these few things in practice now that he believes the team has seen what listening to their coaches will get them.
Look out for the changes in the Cards overall game plan when they take on Bloomington South this Friday, September 14. The game is the homecoming game for the Cards and is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. The homecoming parade will be prior to the game and will begin at 5:30 p.m. in the west lot of the high school and will travel down Banta Rd. and then circle back to the east lot.
Come out and support the Cards in their efforts.
