The DeKalb Middle School Saints had their three-game winning streak on the gridiron ended Tuesday night in their first road game of the season. The Saints committed three turnovers and had only 91 yards of total offense in a 34-6 loss at Gordonsville. The host Tigers improved to a perfect 3-0 on the season, while the Saints' record dropped to 3-2.
Gordonsville scored all 34 of their points before halftime, as running back Brandon McCoy scored twice, back-up quarterback, Noah King, had another scoring run, while starting quarterback, Payton Watson hit Devin Jackson on a 29-yard touchdown pass. The Tigers also picked up two more points on a safety, as Saints' running back, Zaxtin Fayette, was tackled in the end zone, late in the second quarter.
DeKalb Middle got on the board in the game's final minute, as Kalab Ferrell broke free on a 27-yard touchdown run. The conversion attempt failed, however, and Gordonsville ran out the remainder of the clock to end the 34-6 rout.
The Saints will take two weeks off, then return to action on Tuesday, September 23rd, at Watertown.
