A new face joined star tailback Shaquan Johnson in the backfield Friday night to help rally Thomasville from an early deficit, but the Bulldogs were unable to complete the comeback, dropping a 34-26 contest to the Southeast Guilford Falcons at Cushwa Stadium.

Thomasville quarterback Justin Hubbard was removed from the game in the first quarter in favor of sophomore Shakeem Peterson. The team responded to the underclassman, as Peterson entered the game after the first series and completed 9-of-13 passes for 147 yards, including an 8-yard TD to Sharaun Mouzone.

The aerial attack posed enough of a threat to keep the Falcon defense from honing in on the Thomasville running game in the second half. Johnson carried 32 times for 206 yards and added three touchdowns.

Peterson appeared to be the answer at quarterback, logging his most explosive play of the night just before the end of the first quarter when he completed a 53-yard pass to Mouzone that brought the ball to the Falcon 3 yard line. After a 2-yard run by Johnson left Thomasville with 2nd-and-goal from the 1, however, a fumbled exchange between Peterson and Johnson resulted in the Bulldogs’ second turnover of the night.

On the following series, Falcons quarterback Will Greene threw an interception backed up deep into his on territory to give Thomasville the ball back at the 16 yard line. Three plays later, Johnson delivered a 6-yard TD run to make the score 7-6 with 9:17 left until halftime.

The teams exchanged touchdowns before halftime, giving the Falcons a one-point advantage at the break.

Southeast struck first in the second half with Jamal Petty’s 59-yard TD run that gave the team a 20-12 lead midway through the third quarter. Johnson answered just two minutes later with a 40-yard sprint to pay dirt, but failed to convert the 2-point attempt, leaving the Bulldogs down 20-18.

Thomasville temporarily took the lead, but a 41-yard TD completion to Dezmond Wilson was called back due to an illegal shift. The Bulldogs put the points back on the board, however, with an 18-yard TD run by Johnson. That score gave Thomasville its first lead of the game at 26-20 with three minutes left in the third quarter.

Petty had the last word, as he put Southeast on top for good with two TD runs in the fourth quarter, 15 and 22 yards respectively, giving the Falcons their final margin, 34-26.

    Thanks Andy….I had just looked this up on the web. No one from SEG sends stats to the News N Record or any of the websites. That’s why most of the stats you see in the News N Record are incorrect (they come from the opposing team). Some times it’s difficult for me to discuss the game if I’m getting up dates from Mom. Her updates can be basically summed up with the following quote…’He’s running my son to death. Can’t he give someone else the ball. He’s going to get my baby hurt.’ My Stepdad’s updates are a little more informative, but it’s tough to talk about players on the offensive other than Will and Jamal. Will and Jamal AREN’T the team. However, their success is the result of good teamwork. I also have to give Coach Fritz credit for opening up the playbook. I’ve never seen a SEG QB throw 20 passes in a game. Will has the green light to let it fly.

    Derrick Biggs has had many solid yards this year. He gets no press however. I was not at the game this week but I’m sure he got many quality carries. It is amazing how much Will Greene has improved since he started playing in middle school. He is a very good athlete. As you say Damon there are many solid players on this team who do not get listed in the stats.
