Richmond Rolls Past Southern Lee 58-0
The Southern Lee Cavaliers took to the gridiron again Tuesday night in a makeup game from the postponement of the September 17th Sandhills 3A/4A conference opener, and found very little to be happy about going down to Richmond County 58-0 in Rockingham. After turning the Raiders away with a 3 and out on their first series of the game, the Cavs saw the Raiders score on a pass play, a running touchdown, and a return of a fumble for another score to build a 21-0 first quarter lead and eventually a 44-0 halftime advantage.
The Cavs offense continued to struggle against a solid and physical Richmond defense, finishing the first half with -28 yards rushing, no passing yards, and 3 turnovers. Despite being on the field most of the game, the Southern Lee defense played well at times, despite several Richmond County possessions starting in Cavalier territory. The Cavalier defense had 3 three and outs on the night and also saw Senior Jeremiah Freeman intercept a pass for his 3rd interception on the season.
Southern Lee managed just two first downs on the night, the first one coming on an 18-yard pass from Freshman Brett Tate-Blanks to Senior Joseph Cooner in the third quarter. Despite giving up 58 points, the Cavalier defense held Richmond County to 7 first downs on the evening.
The Cavaliers (0-4, 0-7) will have their bye on Friday, and will return to action on Friday, October 22nd at Union Pines. Richmond County (4-0, 7-1) will host Lee County on Saturday, Oct. 16th with an 11:00 am kickoff.
