Eagles Trounce Rival Wolves 36-0




Hinds CC Athletics The Hinds Community College football team put on a defensive display for the ages on Thursday night, forcing seven turnovers, including five interceptions, in a 36-0 defeat of the Co-Lin Community College Wolves in Wesson. Hinds now moves to 2-1 overall and 1-0 in South division play, while Co-Lin, who was ranked 20th in the latest National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) poll, falls to 2-1 overall and 0-1 in the South. Adonis Armstrong of Clinton, a sophomore defensive back, has his second multi-pick game of the season, collecting two interceptions for 112 yards, including a 64-yard touchdown return with 13:21 left in the fourth quarter. Armstrong also recovered a fumble to complete a career night. Godfrey Thompson and J’Vontez Blackmon, both sophomore safeties from Jackson and Zach McKee of Pearl, a sophomore linebacker, all collected an interception apiece to pace the Eagles defense, which allowed only 307 yards of total offense on the night. Jeremy Palmer of Puckett, a sophomore running back, broke an amazing 54-yard touchdown run just seconds into the second quarter to put Hinds up 6-0 after a blocked point after attempt. Kyle Williams of Pearl, a sophomore kicker, drilled a 28-yard field goal attempt with 11:58 left in the third quarter to give the Eagles a 9-0 advantage. Deon Anthony of New Iberia, La., a sophomore quarterback, found Quantavius Leslie of Hogansville, Ga., a freshman wide receiver, on a 23-yard slant for a touchdown, and after a blocked PAT, the Eagles now led 15-0 midway through the third quarter. Roy Williams Jr., of Brandon, a sophomore running back, moved the Eagles lead to up to 22-0 when he went untouched up the middle for a 27-yard touchdown run with 1:44 left in the third frame. Anthony, who finished 12-24 with 151 yards and one TD passing and rushing, would end the third quarter in fashion, scampering into the left corner of the end zone as time expired to put the Eagles up 29-0 after the Williams PAT. Armstrong completed the night’s scoring in the fourth quarter with this 64-yard jaunt after his second pick of the night. Hinds will now hit the road next Thursday, wrapping up the non-conference portion of their schedule with a trip to Moorhead to take on Mississippi Delta Community College. Game time has now been moved to 7 p.m.]]]]> ]]>
