Winless Gamecocks Surprise
Dawgs; Pull Off The Upset, 21-17
Friday, October 1, 2004
SYLVANIA - Were the Dawgs looking ahead to their
showdown with SCPS? Were they just complacent because they were
playing a weaker opponent that hadn't won a game all season? The
old saying is that anything can happen in sports and it did.
The Dawgs chances of winning the East crown were severely hampered by the
loss. First place is still in reach but the Dawgs must win their
remaining games with unbeaten, 9th-ranked Savannah Christian and an
always tough Metter squad.
Corey Burgest scored a touchdown in the fourth quarter
to lift Screven County to an upset victory over Toombs County in a
Region 3-AA East game Friday night.
The win was the first of the season for Screven (1-5,
1-2 region) and tagged Toombs (5-2, 2-1) with its first region loss.
Burgest rushed for 65 yards on 13 carries and scored a
touchdown in the first quarter on 95-yard kickoff return.
Brandon Sharpe led Toombs with 154 yards on 24 carries
and scored on a 28-yard run in the first quarter. Jeff Adams scored
Toombs' other touchdown on a 13-yard run and Brian Jernigan kicked a
34-yard field goal.

Dawgs Defeat 6th Ranked, Unbeaten Savannah Christian, 16-7

LYONS - Toombs County ended Savannah Christian's bid for an undefeated
regular season and a chance to capture the Region 3-AA East title Friday
night, taking a hard-fought 16-7 victory over the sixth-ranked Red
Raiders at The Pit.
The loss dropped Savannah Christian to 5-1 in the
subregion and 8-1 overall. The Raiders could still claim the subregion
title and the East's No. 1 seed if the Bulldogs (5-1, 6-2) lose to
Metter next week.
Barring that, Savannah Christian, which has a bye next
week, will be the East's No. 2 seed for the region playoffs Oct. 29 and
likely play Dodge County in the first round at home.
The Raiders, who pulled out a 7-6 victory over Screven
County last week, made mistakes at critical times.
"We were down three or four times (near the goal
line) and couldn't get it in or made a mistake,'' Savannah Christian
coach Jack Miller said. "But our boys played so hard, and we kept
coming back and coming back. That's all I can ask. We lost, but we
didn't get beat.''
Trailing 10-0, Christian drove from its own 21 to the
Toombs County 15 to start the third quarter. But on second down, Justin
Clemens' pass went off Kellen Stanley's hands in the end zone, and
Toombs County's Brian Jernigan came up with a diving interception.
The Bulldogs moved to the Savannah Christian 39, but
were stopped on fourth-and-1. The Raiders then drove 61 yards in 11
plays to pull within 10-7 with 1:35 left, capped by Hugh Hostetter's
It looked like Savannah Christian might come back for
the second straight week when it got the ball on its own 33 with 5:31
left. But Clemens fumbled on first down and Toombs County recovered. The
Bulldogs capitalized on the turnover as Brandon Sharpe scored on a
16-yard run with 3:46 left for a 16-7 lead. Sharpe, the nephew of former
Savannah State standout and NFL All-Pro Shannon Sharpe, finished the
night with 158 yards rushing on 20 attempts.
In the first half, Toombs County scored on Jernigan's
25-yard goal in the first quarter and a 33-yard touchdown pass from
Jernigan to Chris Ledford in the second quarter.
The Bulldogs controlled the ball for most of the first
half, running 32 plays to 19 for the Raiders with a 167-98 edge in total
After taking the opening kickoff, Toombs County drove
63 yards in 15 plays - overcoming three penalties for 20 yards - to set
up Jernigan's field goal with 5:21 left in the first quarter.
On Savannah Christian's initial possession, Toombs
County's Jared Allen intercepted a pass by Clemens on third down on the
Raiders 30 and returned the ball to the 20.
But just when it looked like home team would take
early command, the Savannah Christian defense recorded three straight
tackles for losses totaling 8 yards and Jernigan's pass to Chuck Hill on
fourth-and-18 was incomplete in the end zone.
After an exchange of punts, Savannah Christian moved
from its own 45 to the Toombs County 13, keyed by passes of 29 and 12
yards from Clemens to Tiwi Marira and Stanley, respectively.
But a bad pitch by Clemens to Marira on first down
resulted in an 11-yard loss and forced Stanley to try a 42-yard field
goal attempt, which he missed badly to the left with 6:22 left in the
The Dawgs must travel to Metter to meet a very dangerous Tiger team next
week in the regular season finale. Metter's senior QB Zack
Stanford has already set a state record for passing yards in his four
year tenure. The Dawgs must bring their 'A' game if they expect to
rap up the Eastern divisional crown. A loss would possibly send
the Dawgs into the region playoff in third place.

Dawgs Hold On To Defeat Metter, 21-19
Friday, October 23
METTER -- The Dawgs held off a furious fourth quarter
rally by Metter to take a 21-19 victory and clinch the 3-AA East title
and the sub-region's number 1 seed for next weeks region playoff.
Swainsboro could possibly be the opponent which will be played in Lyons.
The kicking game paid huge dividends for the Dawgs. All three
extra point attempts were successful. Metter missed their second
PAT and was forced to go for a 2-point conversion to tie the game at 21,
which was also missed. Metter attemted a short field goal to win
the game late in the final period, but missed wide right.
The Dawgs led 21-7 at the end of the three quarters, but the Tigers
scored two touchdowns in the final period on touchdown passes by
Metter's all-state quarterback Zack Stanford to Jan Lanier and Travis
Wilson, respectfully. Brian Jernigan scored on a 1-yard run and
threw an 81-yard touchdown pass to lead the Dawgs.
