Even though Evans Middle School spent the entire first quarter playing defense, and despite the fact that the clock didn’t stop during the final minutes of the second half, the Knights put 34 points on the scoreboard in Wednesday’s shutout win on the road over Greenbrier. Quarterback Noah Story threw two touchdown passes, one to Mason Short and another to Rayshaun King, in a 20 point second quarter for the Knights. And Brenden Reynolds scored two second half touchdowns to help finish the rout.

Wednesday’s result was the second lopsided win in two outings this season for Evans following last Wednesday’s 40-14 win at home over Stallings Island. Head coach Blake Crewe explained why he is satisfied that his players are learning valuable lessons despite experiencing relatively few obstacles on the field so far:
“The best thing about this group is that they play for each other. You see our receivers and how they block for our running backs,” Crewe told me in a post game interview. “That carries over where we try to get them the ball also. So they feed into hard work and playing for each other.”

The game highlight footage above supports Crewe’s point because tight end Mason Short (38) and receiver Jaden McCladdie (28) can be seen clearing space for teammates Jacob Jackson (26) and Brenden Reynolds (13) to score on three occasions. And both Short and McCladdie were repaid when Story found them both for short completions that turned into touchdowns after some physical running after the catch by both players, although McCladdie’s touchdown was called back due to a penalty on Evans.
“Jaden McCladdie… he was a beast out there for us today,” Crewe said. “We ran to his side quite a bit tonight just because of the way he was blocking.”

The Knights celebrate after Wednesday’s win.
The remaining four regular season games and the one post season game for the Knights will be played on the next five Tuesdays, as is the case for all eight Columbia County schools, with the exception of Lakeside’s game against Grovetown. (That contest will be played next Wednesday at Grovetown.) This season is only the second in which a Columbia County middle school championship game will be played, and October 8 is the scheduled date.
The next three teams on the schedule for Evans were all victorious in week 2 as well. Next Tuesday the Knights will visit Riverside, winners over Columbia yesterday 14-8. On September 7, Evans will host Grovetown, who just topped Stallings Island 20-0. And the Knights will visit Harlem, 30-8 winners Wednesday over Lakeside, on September 24 before closing the regular season at home October 1 against Columbia.

“Sophomore Malik Ferguson picked up a loose ball in the middle of the paint with one second remaining, and right before the fourth quarter buzzer sounded, he released a shot that found its mark to give Grovetown 61-60 win over Evans Friday, a result that threw the top spot in the class 6A, region 5 standings into a three way tie between Grovetown, Evans and Heritage to mark the beginning of the stretch run for the league’s regular season championship. Ferguson’s shot came at the end of a full court dash by Grovetown after head coach Darren Douglas was able to draw up a play during a timeout that was meant to result in a bucket in only six seconds. The play was designed for senior Zach Bell, who eventually fumbled the ball after spinning between defenders at the end of a drive that began near half court after he gathered the ball from freshman Derrion Reid.”

That was Chad Cook’s rundown of the instant classic that these two teams played two weeks ago. That win by Grovetown sets up a must-win scenario for Evans as they look to maintain their footing in the race for a region championship.

Be sure to get your ? ready early because if tonight’s game is as exciting as the last one, you just might forget those jokers altogether!
