Majuan McKoy dashed 15 yards for the game’s only touchdown as Elizabethtown won the Bladen Five Middle School Conference football championship with a 6-0 victory Monday night over visiting Bladenboro.
After a scoreless first half, the Cougars took the second-half kick-off and drove 60 yards for the touchdown.
The Cougars had one second quarter drive stopped inside the Bladenboro five hardline by a fumble that the Bulldogs recovered.
“It was another great defensive game by our guys,” said Elizabethtown Coach Ricky Whitaker. “This was our third defensive shut-out in a row. The defense has really stepped up.”
The Cougars finished a perfect 6-0 on the season. It was the third undefeated season for Elizabethtown Middle in the last 5 years.
McKoy finished with 108 yards rushing to lead the Cougar offense. Teammate Jordan Robinson rushed for 90 yards.
“Majuan McKoy, Jordan Robinson and Cody Butler carried us to the championship,” said Coach Whitaker. “LeFrederick Wooten made a big tackle on their last play.”
“I was really proud of our boys,” added Coach Whitaker. “We had 22 seventh-graders and only ten eighth-graders on the team.”
“It was a tough loss,” said Bladenboro Coach Steve Thurman. “I thought we got a lot out of our kids.” The Bulldogs finished in second-place in the league with a 4-2 record.
