HSFB: Georgia Thomson’s power brings down May River
May River didn’t want to lose on a Friday night in this uncertain football season, so when the Sharks’ road game at Ridge View fell victim to COVID-19 protocols earlier in the week, they set out in search of a opponent.
Boy, did they find one.
The Sharks ran into a buzzsaw in the Brickyard, as Georgian powerhouse Thomsom quickly took the lead and thwarted the May River ground game, sending the Sharks to a 48-7 road loss.
May River withstood the initial push, responding to two quick touchdowns from Thomson as Garvin Douglas hit tight end Max Kimmel for a long gain and then hit him a yard himself to close the gap at 14-7.
But that was all Bulldogs from there. Thomson increased his lead to 35-7 before halftime, and May River called up two touchdowns on penalties, thwarting any hope of a comeback.
“If we misstated or were out of place it would be hard to stop them,” said May River coach Rodney Summers. “We didn’t perform very well offensively either, and they were a good football team. But we have to play a quality opponent. We don’t try to schedule wins, we try to schedule matches and improve. Victories will come if we can learn and make improvements. “
The Sharks (2-2) return home to The Tank to face Blythewood in their final out-of-region tune-up on Friday.
