Turnovers Plague Car­di­nals

Washington County Enterprise-Leader - - HOMECOMING - By Mark Humphrey

FARM­ING­TON — A 42-point swing oc­curred late in the third pe­riod con­tin­u­ing into the fourth with the Car­di­nals los­ing fum­bles twice and then throw­ing an in­ter­cep­tion.

Green­brier (4-2, 2-1 5A West) also blocked a punt to hand Farm­ing­ton (3-3, 1-2 5A West) a dis­ap­point­ing 28-14 loss on Home­com­ing Day. Three con­sec­u­tive Farm­ing­ton pos­ses­sions ended with a turnover in Green­brier ter­ri­tory. Each time Green­brier scored go­ing the other way to put up 21 unan­swered points, build­ing a 28-7 fourth quar­ter lead off Car­di­nal mis­cues.

“We turned the ball over four times last Fri­day and you can’t ex­pect to beat any­one, much less a good team like Green­brier, when you do that,” said Farm­ing­ton coach Mike Adams. “Three of those turnovers came in­side their 30-yard-line — if we fin­ished those drives it would have been a com­pletely dif­fer­ent game.” Green­brier Farm­ing­ton 7 0 0 7 14 0 7 7 — 28 — 14 Green­brier — An­drew John­son 15yard run (Cody Pow­ell kick), 9:08.
