Football: Armwood 37, Durant 14

SEFFNER — Armwood had 14-0 lead less than six minutes into the first quarter. But Durant made it interesting as Crispian Atkins' 85 yards and two TDs in the first half kept it close. After a scoreless third, Armwood's defense forced costly turnovers and unforced errors to finally pull away.

Drive of the game: Durant held the ball for over six minutes and 14 plays on a drive that could have pulled the Cougars to within a TD. But they turned the ball over on downs in the third quarter.

Play of the game: With 44 seconds left in the third and Durant rolling, DE Byron Cowart sacked QB Erick Davis for a 6-yard loss. Less than three minutes later, Noah Johnson scored, putting Armwood up 35-14.

Star of the game: Sterling Hoffrichter's 60-yard average on punts allowed the Hawks defense to pin the Cougars' ears back.

Stat of the game: 12 penalties on Armwood, down from last week's 24 in the loss to Plant.

Final word: "We've got a ways to go, no doubt. We have some concerns about some areas and it showed. … Byron finally played like Byron's supposed to play. … It didn't happen till the third quarter, but we're hard on Byron because he's got those kinds of expectations that come with his play." — Armwood HC Sean Callahan
