Aggies go to 4-1 with win over Pine Forest
A week ago we saw the resurgence of one program, Escambia, who is undefeated so far this season with a 4-0 record. This week another program put its stamp on a resurgence with a significant victory.
The Tate Aggies earned their second shutout victory in a row defeating Pine Forest tonight 35-0 in front of their home crowd.
Sophomore quarterback Sawyer Smith had four touchdown passes in the game, and gave a steady dose of Tay Samuel who had well over 100 yards rushing in the game
The play that sealed the deal for the Aggies was a 75 yard pick six by Rashan Johnson in the second half.
Tate improves their record to 4-1 on the year, and will face 5-0 Niceville, while Pinbe Forest drops to 0-5, and will face 1-4 Pace next week.
Tate's opponent next week, Niceville had an impressive 57-28 victory over Mississippi Greene County, and once again Eagles WR Tyre McCants started off the game with a big 97 yard kick return for the touchdown, his third game of the season where he returned a kick return for a score.
That would start a scoring spree that would give Niceville a 50-14 lead at halftime and finish the game with their fifth win of the season.
That game for the Eagles sets up Niceville vs Tate in Cantonment next week.
Ryan Bonifant is a sports talk show host with ESPN1450 in Pensacola and calls the Escambia County Game of the Week.
