Friday night the Admirals came up one yard short of continuing a last minute drive that would’ve won the game, had the Admirals been able to score a Touchdown. Farragut led for most of the game, and was ahead by 11 points with 9 minutes left in the ball game. Dobyns-Bennett started the game with a long drive, but Farragut’s defense was able to stop the drive and hold the Indian to a 45 yard FG by Landon Salyers. The Admiral’s offense took the ball down the field and quickly answered with J-Bo Partin’s 3-yard run to give the Admirals a 7-3 lead with 5:09 left in the 1st quarter. DB went ahead 10-7 with a TD pass from Skylar East to Makale Foreman covering 33 yards with 1:57 left in the 1st quarter. The 2nd quarter was eventful to say the least. Admiral safety R.J. Stewart intercepted, but fumbled in the process of being tackled, which gave DB the ball back at their own 14. On the very next play , Stewart again intercepted a pass, and returned it to the Indians’ 45 yard line. Kicker Carter Phillipy booted a 34-yard FG to tie the game at 10 with 3:08 left in the 1st half. Derek Williams intercepted East’s next pass, and the Admirals started their drive at the DB 22. QB Jacob Naumoff threw a 31-yard Touchdown pass to Cole Morgan to take a 17-10 lead with 1:48 left in the 1st half, but DB wasn’t prepared to take it to half just yet, after a quick drive, Salyers’ 25-yard field goal cut Farragut lead to 3, 17-14, at halftime. After halftime, the Admirals were stopped on a drive, but Phillipy’s 43-yard field goal put Farragut up 20-13 with 9:08 left in the 3rd. The Indians were also stopped on a long drive, but again Salyers would boot a 34 yard FG which made it 20-16 at the end of the 3rd quarter.On the first drive of the 4th, Farragut marched down the field and scored from 4 yards out with a Tanner Thomas TD run and put the Admirals up 27-16 with 10:02 left. DB quickly drove down the field to answer, when RB Jacoby Thompson scored on a 12 yard run and after a sucessful 2pt conversion, pulled the Indians with in 3, at 27-24 with 8:45 left in the game. The Admirals went 3 and out on the ensuing drive and Punter Joseph Doyle punted the ball back to the Indians. After nearly being sacked, QB Skylar East threw a 47 yard touchdown pass to Makale Foreman, who had five catches for 143 yards. The score was 31-27 6:49 left in the game. The Admirals again went 3 and out and after a big stop by the Admiral defense on 4th, got the ball back. The Admirals got a drive going, but on 4th and 17, at the DB 31, QB Jacob Naumoff completed a 16 yard pass to WR Franklin Stooksbury, but came up one yard short. This time, Farragut faced a fourth-and-17 situation at the D-B 31-yard line with only seconds left. Jacob Naumoff threw a 16-yard pass to Franklin Stooksbury, who was stopped short of the first down. The game ended and Dobyns-Bennett emerged victorious, 31-27. The Admirals will go back and correct mistakes this week and work hard in preparation for this week’s game against Oak Ridge.
