TROY – The Charles Henderson Middle School Trojans waited until the second half to score two touchdowns and beat visiting Greenville 16-6 on Thursday night at James A. Baker Field.
Trojan tailback Anthony Terry scored both touchdowns for CHMS.
Greenville received the kickoff to open the second half, but could not move the ball against a stiff Trojan defense. Charles Henderson rushed the Greenville punter on fourth down forcing him to rush the kick.
The Trojans took over at the 30-yard line and from there quarterback Martesi Carlisle handed the ball off five straight times to Terry, who scored his first TD of the night from the two yard line. Carlisle passed to Quavian Lewis for the two point conversion.
Thanks to a nice kick return and a face mask penalty, Greenville was sitting pretty at the Trojan 23-yard line. But the CHMS defense stuffed the Tigers on fourth down, stopping the threat.
On the Trojans’ first play from scrimmage, Terry went off the left side for 80-yards and his second touchdown.
"I’m real pleased with the effort our kids showed tonight," said CHMS head coach Forrest Lee. "Greenville traditionally brings a strong football team to play us and they did tonight."
The Trojans had an opportunity to score earlier in the game in the second quarter. Carlisle hit Lewis on a deep pass to move the Trojans to inside the Tigers 10-yard line. But Charles Henderson fumbled at the one-yard line on third down.
