The ‘Kings of the Jungle’ have done it once again. The undefeated, roaring CPA took a big 35-20 win over Fairview to advance to the Semifinals next week.
It wasn’t until the end of the first quarter that CPA led off the night with a 25-yard run by Jay Hockaday to bring it 7-0. The Lions would strike again leading off into the second with another Hockaday TD into the end zone with only 8:17 left in the first half.
The Lions didn’t stop there. An explosive 87-yard touchdown pass into the end zone, but a missed PAT, would bring CPA up 20-0 with minutes to go in the half.
In the second half, the Yellow Jackets struck back with full force.
Dreshad Moore braced a 17-yard run to grace the end zone and gave Fairview its first points of the night, 20-7. A little over a minute later, CPA answered right back with a Hockaday 20-yard TD.
Starting off the fourth, Chance Meier ran another in for CPA to finalize a 35-yard TD for the Lions with only eleven minutes left in the game. Nic Harvey fought back with a 69-yard run into the end zone to bring the Yellow Jackets up 35-14.
You could see how bad Harvey wanted the win as he finalized the Yellow Jackets 20-points for the night only second left in the game. Garret Wall sailed a 69-yard pass into Harvey on the last play of the game, and the Lions took the victory.
CPA will take on Lewis Co. next week in the Semifinals at home, once again.
