|Ferriday rebounds with win|
District play is still two weeks away, but Ferriday High head coach Freddie Harrison knows how crucial his team's win over Jena Friday was in the overall scheme of things.
Ferriday quarterback Rodney Lawson scored on a 1-yard quarterback keeper with 2:02 remaining to give the Trojans a hard-earned 15-12 win over the Giants Friday in Jena.
"I always tell the kids to keep working hard, persevering and don' quit," said Harrison, whose team snapped a two-game losing streak to Block and Vidalia and improved to 2-2. "The kids kept fighting back and things went our way. This might be the turning point we need for the rest of the season."
Lawson completed two passes to DeVante Scott on the final drive to key the winning touchdown.
"We had two tough losses where we had a chance to win," Harrison said. "It was good to finally get over that hump."
After a scoreless first quarter, Ferriday scored first as Bobby Madison, who finished with 97 yards on 19 carries, broke loose on a 50-yard run. Marques Lewis added the kick.
Jena got on the board later in the period as Deandre Wallace scored on a 32-yard run. The conversion run failed.
Jena went up 12-7 in the fourth quarter as Wallace scored on an 8-yard run.
Ferriday held Eric Brown, who rushed for more than 200 yards in the Giants' previous two games, to 79 yards.
"The defense stepped up to the challenge there," Harrison said. "They were not going to let one man beat them."
"They did a good job on keying on him," Cooley said. "They shut him down more than anybody has so far. They are so fast they just ran him down from behind."
Jena defeated Block by one point and lost a close game to a good Iowa High team.
"Our kids played hard the whole time and fought down to the wire," said Giant head coach Bernie Cooley. "We had a couple of opportunies, but had some miscues. They had some fourth and shorts where we jumped offsides."
