Hawks struggle against stout Stratford team

MACON — Heritage School head coach Kevin Prisant preached to his young team not to look at the scoreboard for results this week at Stratford Academy. The Hawks might not have wanted to anyway following a tough 50-0 loss to the Eagles’ well-oiled wing-T offense.

The loss dropped Heritage to 2-5 overall and 0-2 in GISA Region 2-AAA heading into this week’s home game against Westminster of Augusta.

Behind a pair of touchdowns from Connor Corbitt and quarterback John Mitchell, Stratford kept pace atop the region standings while improving to 2-0 and 5-0 while tied with fellow Macon schools Tattnall Square and Mount de Sales. Tattnall shut out Trinity Christian 27-0 in Sharpsburg while Mount de Sales defeated Westminster 41-10.

Coming off a loss to Mount de Sales where Heritage fell behind by 17 points early and managed just two first downs, the Hawks again faced a large first-quarter deficit despite coming up with big plays.

Down 14-0, a 29-yard pass from Brad Macke to Cole Jones picked up one of Heritage’s 10 first downs. But from there the drive stalled before turning it over to Stratford on downs.

Junior linebacker Trevor Sawyers added a sack on the Eagles’ ensuing possession to push the ball back to the Stratford 41-yard line only to have the team convert on a 59-yard touchdown run for a 21-0 lead.

Heritage’s defense put the Eagles in third-and-long situations multiple times only to have Stratford find ways to continue drives.

The Eagles, also had a pair of interceptions in the second half that kept the Hawks off the scoreboard.

Jones added an interception for the Hawks in the loss.
