South Pointe (SC) Tops Buford

Buford (2-1) suffers its first-ever out-of-state loss falling 33-27 to South Pointe (SC) (4-0). South Pointe quarterback Derion Kendrick powered the Stallions victory rushing for nearly 200 yards and two touchdowns while passing for a pair of touchdowns. Buford entered the game allowing only 110 yards rushing through two games, Kendrick rushed for 110 in the first half.

Buford used special teams to take an early lead and to stay in the game multiple times. Mick Reese recovered a high snap on a punt in the end zone for a touchdown to crack the scoring seal as Buford led 7-0.

South Pointe answered on the following possession going 77 yards capping the drive with a Kendrick to Scott Robinson Jr 38-yard touchdown pass to knot it 7-7. In the second quarter Kendrick danced around Buford’s defense capping  another 77-yard drive with a 10-yard touchdown run while evading several Buford defenders before lowering his shoulder for the score and the 14-7 lead. Kendrick accounted for every yard on the drive.

Buford’s special teams got back in on the act again as Eli Turner raced of the right edge to block BT Potter’s 32-yard field goal attempt. Buford cashed it in 61 yards later with an Anthony Grant 3-yard touchdown run pulling even 14-14, which stood til halftime.

South Pointe’s defense led by Eli Adams and Deangelo Huskey gave Buford fits all night. On Buford’s opening second half possession, Jaylen Mahoney intercepted Aaron McLaughlin setting up a 36-yard touchdown pass from Kendrick to Robinson on the following play for a 21-14 South Pointe lead.

The team exchanged punts and again it was Buford’s special teams putting up points as Austin Turner returned a punt 70-yards for a touchdown to pull Buford to within 21-20 with just over six minutes remaining in the third quarter after the extra point attempt failed due to a bad snap and hold.

Potter added a field goal for South Pointe in the fourth quarter to extend their lead to 24-20. Buford answered that score with Grant’s second touchdown run of the game early in the fourth quarter for a 27-24 Buford lead.

The lead was short lived as Kendrick engineered a Stallions drive that he finished with a 17-yard touchdown run for a 28-27 lead. BT Potter added his second field goal of the game to extend South Pointe’s lead to 31-27. After a South Pointe fumble, Buford’s McLaughlin was called for intentional grounding in the end zone for the final 33-27 margin.
