Concord hosted Pine Forest Friday in the first ever meeting of the schools.

The Spiders took a 7-0 lead after Jadon Bell’s 36 yard touchdown pass to Nick Santiago.

Early in the 2nd Landon Trott added a 35 yard field goal to give the Spiders a 10-0 lead.

The Trojans got on the board midway through the 2nd quarter with a 24 yard touchdown pass from Richard McEachern to Jordan Gladney.

With seconds left in the first half Bell found Joe Bond who hauled in an 8 yard touchdown pass. The drive was kept alive by a spectacular catch by wide receiver Ikym Hall. <photo>

Bond’s catch pushed the Spiders to a 17-7 halftime.

Pine Forest freshman quarterback Jadon Jones provided a spark for the Trojans in the 2nd half.

Jones scored from 11 yards out to get the Trojans with striking distance at 17-13.

After a Spider punt Jones hit Rowdell Robinson on the slant. 63 yards later the Trojans had a 19-17 lead with just over 10 minutes remaining.

After giving up scores on two straight possessions the Spiders needed a spark. Antonio Campbell came through with a 90 yard kickoff return touchdown. The Spiders reclaimed the lead and never looked back.

On the next possession Spider linebacker Clint Bost, Jr. stepped in front of a Trojan pass and set the Spiders up at midfield.

Landon Trott hit his second field goal of the night, this time from 26 yards to give the Spiders a 9 point cushion with minutes remaining.

The Spider defense buckled down and Emmanuel Arias broke up a 4th down pass to effectively end the Trojan threat.

He didn’t find the endzone but sophomore tailback L.J. Currie had a sparkling performance. Currie rushed for 173 yards on 27 carries.

The Spider defense came through when it mattered most. Clint Bost Jr. and Jordain Heilig paced the Spiders with 7 solo stops each. The duo 

Rick Sandidge had 2 sacks and Joe Coleman added one sack.
