Rogersville City Tops North Greene Middle 32-6

The team who controls the line of scrimmage almost always wins the game. That was the case on Thursday night as Rogersville City controlled the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball at got the win on the Tundra over North Greene Middle 32-6.

The first half was tightly contested as Rogersville City put up two scores on QB keepers to go up 14-0. The momentum seemed to be short lived as Brandon Weems took a Rogersville kickoff to the house as time expired in the first half, making the score 14-6.

In the second half it was more of the same for Rogersville moving the ball up the field with a read-option style offense. They found the end zone again in the 3rd quarter on another keeper from the QB which was setup by a 30-yard pass up the sideline marked down at the 1 yard line.

The Huskies tried to get the ball moving again in the fourth quarter with a first down pass connection when Matthew Boyd hit Thomas Darnell down the sideline for a big gain, but the drive stalled out from there.

Rogersville added two touchdowns late in 4th quarter to seal the game, one on an interception returned for a touchdown, and another on a touchdown run coming with about 40 seconds left in the game, making the final score 32-6.

NGMS is back in action on Tuesday as they take on the Cosby Eagles.
