#5 Ayden-Grifton at #4 Pender

IN THE 1-AA TONIGHT, NUMBER FOUR PENDER HOSTED NUMBER FIVE AYDEN-GRIFTON. PENDER FANS BRAVE THE COLD TO SUPPORT THEIR PATRIOTS. QUARTERBACK ANTHONY BLANKS WARMS THEM UP ON THE THIRD PLAY OF THE GAME, SPRINTING, STUMBLING, AND RECOVERING FOR A 60 YARD TOUCHDOWN RUN. THEN THE P-A-T SNAP IS MUFFED BUT THE HOLDER KEN DE GRANT PICKS IT UP AND THROWS IT TO BLANKS FOR THE UNINTENDED TWO POINT CONVERSION. 8 - ZERO, PENDER. AYDEN HAD TROUBLE GETTING THE OFFENSE GOING, ON THIS PLAY MAURICE CORBETT TAKES DOWN JEREMY HARDY IN THE BACKFIELD. AND HERE AYDEN QUARTERBACK MATT DOUGHERTY LAUNCHES THE BALL DOWNFIELD--RIGHT INTO THE HANDS OF PENDER DEFENDER RENNY HARVEY. HE PICKS UP SOME NICE YARDAGE AFTER THE INTERCEPTION. AYDEN'S DEFENSE WAS UNABLE TO STOP THE RUN, AS JAMES HENRY BREAKS OFF A TWENTY YARD SCAMPER. THE PATRIOT DEFENSE DOMIANTED AS PENDER WON 22 - 0 TO ADVANCE TO THE THIRD ROUND FOR THE SECOND YEAR IN A ROW.
