Thurmond Fends Off Aerial Assault to Improve to 2-0

web posted August 25, 2018

SPORTS - Thurmond's ground attack was met by Aiken's aerial assault in a back and forth Friday night match up that took place at the Hornet's Nest in Aiken.
Aiken struck first with a touchdown pass from senior, QB Kory Wallace.  This was matched by Rebel QB Jequan Harris's touchdown trot tying the game at 7.
Aiken would go up 14-7 with another touchdown pass.  This was met with a junior RB, Stanley Hill's touchdown run tying things up at 14 points each.  Hill would prove himself a workhorse throughout the evening, as the Rebels pushed their ground game.
Thurmond pulled ahead with a touchdown pass to senior TE, Robert Whitt, making the score 21-14.  Aiken responded with their own touchdown pass, once again tying the score at 21.
In the 3rd quarter, Stanley Hill would run for another touchdown.  The extra point failed and the score stood at 27-21.
With 6:51 left in the 4th quarter, Aiken took over the ball, but their drive fizzled and they punted away after only 21 seconds had been used from the play clock.  Thurmond's next possession would also fizzle forcing the Rebels to turn the ball over on downs to an eager Hornet club.
On this possession the Hornets would find themselves near mid-field in a 4th and 1 situation with only 2:53 remaining, and QB Wallace scrambled his way to a 1st down on the Thurmond 35 yard line, but the play was called back on an Aiken holding penalty.
Faced with 4th and 9, the Hornets came up short as Rebel LB Ford Williams made a critical play, swatting down Wallace's attempted pass, giving the visiting Thurmond team another series of downs to chew up the clock.
The Hornets would possess the ball once more, but no further score left the Rebels with the victory.
