The John Ehert Patriots beat the G.W. Carver Rams 11-6 in a low sccoring battle.
Thursday nights across the state of Louisiana haven’t been feeling right this fall. Today it was a crisp 75 degrees with a slight breeze and finally It was the first game of the 2020 football season. You could tell both teams had to get some nervousness and jitters out resulting in some sloppy play.The First two plays of the game were high snaps for the Rams, eventually resulting a safety. The Patriots turned the ball over twice with a fumble and an interception by Carvers Jahiem Patterson (Sr.).
The game would pick up a bit when Carver made a big play resulting in a score, Anochee Davis (Jr.) to Gregory Emery (Jr.) for a 55 yard Touchdown. Both defenses were stingy in the first half forcing a hand full of punts or 4th down stops, allowing a total of only 8 points between the teams going into halftime.Ehert’s two studs defensive players Kaine Williams (Sr.) and Andrew Jones (Sr.) led the defense making some big plays and some big hits as well.
John Ehert Head Coach Reggie Rogers message at halftime, “Run the ball. Run it hard, run it down hill and keep running it until we can’t run it anymore”. The first drive after the half was a long 6 minute drive with some tough runs by Travis Patterson (Sr.) and Aami Cargo (Jr.). The drive was capped off with a 7 yard Touchdown pass from Royal Fallout (So.) to Y’Quann Townsend (Sr.) giving us our only score of the second half.
Although in a losing effort, Carver did have some bright spots on both sides of the ball. Quarterback Anochee Davis (Jr.) showed accuracy and decision making throwing the ball. Gregory Emery (Jr.) made play after play for the Rams as their top receiver today. On the defensive side of the ball Linebacker Jacorey Warner (Jr.) was disruptive creating pressure all night and making a few tackles for loss.
To finish the night, John Ehert’s Alabama commit Kaine Williams (Sr.) presented first year Head Coach Reggie Rogers with the game ball for his first win. When asked about that moment Coach Rogers expressed, “I love those guys. I couldn’t ask for a better group of guys to be coaching”.It is so great to have High school football back, the priest form of Football.
PLAYER OF THE GAME
Y’Quann Townsend (Jr.)- John Ehert
Simply put, Townsend was a man amongst boys.
Several screen plays where he made things happen running over defenders or running past them
Confidence and swagger is highly noticeable and shows in the way he play
Standing at 6’2 and 205lb, “Cant Guard Quann” presence is felt when on the field
With a good senior season on the horizon, Y’Quann Townsend should be on some top schools radar
Bullet trains, cheetahs, and Alred Luke all things that if you look up the word speed a picture of them will show up. But, this isn’t about bullet trains or cheetahs no this is about someone who is so fast and quick that if you blink he’s already doing the griddy in the endzone…
