Concord traveled to Mt. Pleasant to open the 2008 season. After a hard fought first half Mt. Pleasant took control in the 2nd half to defeat Concord 42-27 Friday night.

After a slow start both teams got the offenses going late in the 1st quarter. Mt. Pleasant would strike first with QB Evan Seymour hitting Andrew Carroll for a 32 yard touchdown pass. The first quarter would end with Mt. Pleasant ahead 7-0.

In the 2nd quarter Concord would answer with a 30 yard touchdown from Sean Willix to Jared Nash. Brandon Barnhardt would add the extra point to tie the game at 7-7. On the ensuing possession Seymour would again connect with Carroll this time on a 47 yard touchdown strike. Later in the 2nd Concord would take the lead after a 10 yard touchdown run by Roger Smith. That drive was highlighted by a 43 yard pass to Will Cowan and a 4th down conversion by Roger Smith. Concord's defense would recover a Mt. Pleasant fumble to end the half with a 14-13 lead.

Mt. Pleasant would score on the opening drive of the 3rd quarter on Haywood Forte's 3 yard touchdown run to put the Tigers up 19-14. The Tiger's defense would hold the Spiders and the Tigers struck again as Dalton Brandon would add a 20 yard touchdown run to give Mt. Pleasant a 27-14 lead. The teams would exchange turnovers before Mt. Pleasant would add another score as Seymour would find Brandon on a 57 yard touchdown pass. Concord's offense could not convert and the Tigers would add another score to put the Tigers up 42-14.

Junior quarterback Jordan Havinga came on in relief in the 4th quarter. The Spiders would add a 2 yard touchdown run from Brandon Phillips. Later after a Mt. Pleasant fumble was recovered by Tevin Barnes Havinga would connect with Davion Waters on a short touchdown pass. 

Willix finished 15-28 for 243 yards and 1 touchdown. Havinga would finish 4-8 for 64 yards and a touchdown. Brandon Phillips would lead the Spider rushers with 34 yards. Six different receivers would catch passes led by Will Cowan's 4 catches for 109 yards.  

Concord will be in action next week as they host the J.M. Robinson Bulldogs at Robert C. Bailey Stadium.
