Game Recap

For the 11th time in the past 14 years, the Northside Eagles defeated their cross-town rival, the Warner Robins Demons. The victory runs the Eagles’ 2011 season record to 5-0 (2-0 in Region 1-AAAA).

The home team Demons broke all black uniforms for their “Black Out” game theme, but the event had little effect on the start of the contest. After receiving the opening kickoff, Warner Robins tried a flea-flicker on its first play from scrimmage, but the Eagles were not fooled as Devinci Sanders intercepted the pass to set Northside up on offense at their own 36 yard line. Eight plays later, the Eagles attempted to run a sweep to Keshun Hill but the exchange was fumbled. Hill calmly picked up the loose ball, reversed directions and sped down the sideline for a 29 yard touchdown run. A bad snap on the PAT kept the score 6-0 at the 8:23 mark of the first quarter in favor of the Eagles. With 6:07 on the first quarter clock, junior Curtis Martin scored from 2 yards out after Marte Polk busted up the middle for a 36 yard run to put the ball on the 2 yard line. Dillon Mixon’s PAT made the score 13-0. With 13 seconds left in the first quarter, Mixon drilled a 20 yard FG to push the Eagle lead to 16-0.

The Demons got on the scoreboard at the 5:45 mark of the second quarter with a 47 yard FG to cut Northside’s lead to 16-3. Curtis Martin scored his second TD of the night on a 9 yard run with 1:39 left before halftime and Mixon’s PAT pushed the Eagle lead to 23-3 at the break.

Four minutes into the third quarter, Warner Robins connected on a 41 yard pass to set up a 1 yard touchdown run to cut the Eagle lead to 23-10. Northside answered with a Mixon 32 yard FG with 4 minutes left in the quarter to push lead back up to 16 points. With 2:14 left in the third, Martin scored his third rushing touchdown on the night – this time on a 6 yard run after he had burst up the middle on a 63 yard run to set up the score. The PAT was no good and the lead stood at 32-10 entering the fourth quarter. The Demons add 2 fourth quarter touchdowns to cut the lead to 8 points, but the Eagles were able run out the clock after converting a critical third down with about a minute to play after the Demons had used all of their timeouts. Martin’s 16 yard run on third and six iced the game with a final score of 32-24.
