10U Black Braves 39, Villa Rica White 0
(Franklin) – The Heard County Recreation Department football season kicked off Saturday morning at the Heard County Sports Complex where four teams battled Carroll County opponents as the quest for the Kiwanis Bowl launched into full swing.
The most dominant performance of the day came courtesy of Coach Sammy Marsh’s 10U Black Braves who crushed the Villa Rica White team by a final score of 39-0. A running clock in the second half kept the score down after the Black Braves headed to the sidelines at the half with a 26-0 lead.
Running back Kahlil “Beastmode” Cofield led the way in the first half with several long runs from scrimmage including two big touchdown carries. Ayden Cannon also had a a big day scoring on TD runs of 71 yards and 44 yards.
The Braves defense also turned it up with an awesome performance including three interceptions by Cofield, Houston Wilson, and Jackson Dennis as well as a big fumble recovery from Anthony Graley. Dennis also scampered into the end zone from eight yards out for the final score of the day in the fourth quarter.
Center Drew Cornelius handled the kicking duties including an extra-point after the second touchdown. In the 9-10 age group, extra-point kicks and pass plays count two points while running it in counts one point. CJ Walker also added an extra-point run in the second half.
Coach Marsh decided to give the boys a hard earned day off from practice Monday after the big win: “I said all week if Kahlil Cofield had a big game we would get the win and he had one. We looked good up front on the line and everywhere really — the boys played real hard today.”
