Colquitt County 34, Carver 0: Carver held to 90 yards of offense

Moultrie ObserverSeptember 13, 2013 

MOULTRIE, Ga. -- For the second year in a row, Colquitt County shut out visiting Carver High of Columbus at Tom White Field at Mack Tharpe Stadium, but Friday's 34-0 victory was a devastating one for the Packers.

All-State defensive tackle Jamiyus Pittman suffered a broken leg in the second quarter and could be lost for the rest of the season.

Pittman, who has committed to Ole Miss as a defensive tackle, was playing guard on offense when he was hurt.

The rest of the evening was a breeze for the Packers, who held the Tigers to just 90 yards of offense in the game, the second half of which was played with a running clock.

Tigers quarterback Jawon Pass completed 8-of-16 passes for 40 yards.

Colquitt rolled up 290 yards in the first half and led 31-0 at the break.

The Packers added a 42-yard field goal by Luis Martinez in the fourth quarter.

The Packers, who had scored just 48 points in their first three games, erupted for 31 in the first half.

And they wasted little time, driving 52 yards on five plays on their first possession, with Daniel Mobley pitching to Kiel Pollard from 10 yards out and Martinez converted to put the Packers up 7-0 3:20 into the game.

Mobley and Pollard connected on a 4-yard touchdown pass to finish off the Packers second possession and after Martinez converted, Colquitt led 14-0 with 1:35 left in the first quarter.

It was on the third play of the Packers third possession that Pittman suffered his season-ending injury.

The Packers went on to score on that drive on a 41-yard field goal by Martinez to go up 17-0 with 11:01 left in the half.

An apparent touchdown pass from Mobley to Cambrick Taylor was called back by a holding penalty the next time Colquitt had the ball and the Packers were forced into their only punt of the first half with 6:23 remaining.

But the Packers scored on their final two possessions of the first half.

The first came on a 12-yard run by King with 3:35 left and the second on a 7-yard pass from Mobley to Woods with 13 seconds left.

The Tigers had just 24 yards in the first half.

Carver, which score 88 points in its first two games, falls to 2-1. The Packers, who are off next week, will take a 3-1 record into their Region 1-AAAAAA opener on Sept. 27 at Lowndes.
