Undefeated Dobyns-Bennett maintains perfect record with win against Crockett

In Jonesborough Friday night it was the battle of the beaten against the unbeaten as undefeated Dobyns-Bennett (7-0) turned a 28-0 first quarter lead into a 56-7 beat down against the winless Pioneers (0-7) of David Crockett.
For Crockett, there is no shame in losing to Dobyns-Bennett who thus far looks to be a favorite and definitely a contender for the 2011 TSSAA State Championship. The Tribe has toyed with most of their opponents this season, blowing out the majority of teams they have faced.
Crockett entered the contest needing a perfect performance to stay in the game but DB was explosive, efficient, and merciless in the first half.
Junior receiver Malik Foreman followed up the first touchdown of the game, a 33-yard Devaun Swafford run in the first minute and half into the game to score three first quarter touchdowns.
The first came on a 25-yard touchdown reception, the second on a 50-yard punt return and his final score came on defense where he picked up a Pioneer fumble and returned it 20 yards to put the Indians up 28-0.
The second quarter brought with it more points for Dobyns-Bennett who added three more scores before intermission.
Swafford scored his second touchdown of the game to open the second quarter on a 5-yard run.
Seth Barger got his first touchdown of the game a few minutes later on a 1-yard plunge into the end zone and Austin Straley broke away from 40 yards out to send the game to the half with the Indians on top 49-0.
After the half, DB began rotating in the reserves and the fatigued Crockett defense finally began getting some stops.
The Indians’ only touchdown of the second half came midway through the third quarter when Kevin White scored on a 5-yard run to push the lead to 56-0.
Crockett wouldn’t be shutout however, after 47 minutes and 53 seconds had ticked off the clock, senior running back Anthony Campbell put the Pioneers on the board with just six ticks remaining in the game, scoring on a 3-yard run.
The Indians finished with almost 400 yards of total offense, with most of that coming in the first half. The Pioneers struggled on offense, compiling just over 100 yards for the game.
Crockett will continue their search for a first win on Oct. 14 where they will travel to Sullivan South.
