Page 41-7 over Davie County last night and we didn’t have any local write-ups along the media trail and Joe Barile was kind enough to send us this piece on the Page Pirates from the Salisbury Post….Fine job Post!!!!!
Some tidbits from the Salisbury Post:
“The first quarter was a hair-raiser for Davie. Page returned a punt 48 yards to the Davie 18, and it was 7-0 three plays later. Page quarterback James Summers scored on a 46-yard run, barely getting touched.
Two plays later, Page was in the end zone again, this time courtesy of its defense. William Henry picked off Adam Smith and went 37 yards. Page’s third offensive possession resulted in a third score, this time on a Summers 10-yard pass to running back Drew Rogers.
1:15 left in the first quarter, it was 27-0.”
Summers ran for 248 yards on 16 keepers, 2 TDs. 85 passing yards, 2 TDs.
RB Drew Rogers piled up 69 yards on nine carries before leaving early in the third with cramps. Page was backed up at their 12 yard line with 8:29 left in the 3rd. Rogers had just been carted off with cramps. Summers kept the ball around left end and ran 88 yards for the score, making it 34-7.
Summers with a 12 yard TD pass to Orlando Hatfield. 41-7
Salisbury Post Quote:
“I’m glad he’s on our team,” Page coach Kevin Gillespie said. “He’s a special kid. When things are going down, our tailback is going out cramping, he comes up and says: ‘Coach, give me the ball.’ There’s only certain players that I’ve coached in 20-plus years that look you right in the eye and say, ‘Coach, I’ve got you,’ and I believe them.”
