The Glynn Academy Red Terrors could not keep pace with Camden County Friday night as the Wildcats pulled away from Glynn for a 31-14 victory at Chris Gilman Stadium in Kingsland.
Camden and Glynn were locked in a 14-14 tie at the halftime break, but the Wildcats scored the final 17 points of the ballgame to get their first victory of the 2020 season.
Last week, the Wildcats suffered a 28-11 loss at home to Richmond Hill which knocked off Glynn and everyone else in Region 2-AAAAAA to claim the league title before advancing to the semifinals of the Class AAAAAA state playoffs. Camden trailed 14-11 entering the final period last week when the other Wildcats scored the final 14 points to get the victory.
The Terrors won their opener last week at home as they led from start to finish in a 33-7 victory over McIntosh County Academy.
On Friday night, Camden needed just one play to find paydirt as the Wildcats got a 67-yard touchdown pass from Josh Brown to Semaj Parker on the first snap of the opening drive to jump ahead 7-0.
Glynn would draw even late in the opening frame when senior quarterback and Louisville commit TJ Lewis connected with D’Marion Hayes for a 28-yard scoring pass. The two also teamed up for a touchdown last week.
The Terrors would actually go in front with eight minutes to go in the second quarter on a 96-yard scoring run by senior running back Caden Hutchinson. The point-after kick made it 14-7 in favor of Glynn. Hutchinson’s long run came after an interception by Greg West inside the Glynn 5-yard line to end a Camden scoring threat.
Camden deadlocked the halftime score with Brown throwing his second scoring pass of the first half to Deonte Cole that produced the 14-14 score at the break.
The Wildcats would regain the lead with 1:03 to go in the third period on a 21-yard field goal for a 17-14 cushion going into the final 12 minutes.
Camden padded its advantage to 24-14 with 8:30 left on a 1-yard TD run by Ethan Petiote. An interception by the Wildcats led to the points.
The home squad tacked on another score in the closing minute when Jaden Daily scored from 3 yards out to make for the final score following a fumbled punt by Glynn at its own 12.
