Marvin Ridge defeated Concord 30-7 Friday night at Robert C. Bailey Stadium.
After a few punts back and forth Marvin Ridge drove deep into Spider territory but would have to settle for a 27 yard field goal. Later after a Concord fumble Maverick quarterback Tyler Chadwick found Ryan Skibba in the corner of the endzone to put the Mavericks up 10-0. Later in the second quarter Chadwick would throw another touchdown pass(30 yard) to increase the Maverick lead to 17 points. Jacquise Moore returned the ensuing kickoff 53 yards into Maverick territory but the drive would end after a Jordan Havinga interception. The Spider defense held and the Mavericks led 17-0.
The Spider's offensive woes would continue in the second half. After the Spiders defense forced a Maverick punt on their first drive of the second half Matt Chilton picked off a Havinga pass and returned it 25 yards for a touchdown. In the 4th quarter the Mavericks would add another touchdown on a 15 yard run by tailback Kolly Ogar. On the next possession the Spiders avoided the shutout when Jordan Havinga found Jacquise Moore for a 22 yard touchdown. Brandon Barnhardt added the extra point.
The Spiders played Jordan Havinga and Ryan Goodman at quarterback. Havinga finished 4-10 with one touchdown and 2 interceptions. Goodman finished 0-1 with an interception. Tailback Denzel Phillips led the Spider rushing attack with 76 yards on 9 carries. Jacquise Moore led the receivers with 2 receptions for 21 yards and a touchdown.
The defense was paced by linebacker Bradley Phillips' 9 tackles. Brandon Rivers recovered a Maverick fumble.
The game was the first for new Head Coach Glen Padgett. Coach Padgett returned to Concord after former Head Coach E.Z. Smith resigned earlier this year. The Spiders will return to action next Friday as they host Lexington at Robert C. Bailey Stadium. Come out and support Coach Padgett and the Spiders!
