Area high school football homecoming night

MILLEDGEVILLE — Homecoming night graced all three-area high schools Friday.

Baldwin High School beat Rutland 28-16, John Milledge won big 49-7 over Covenant Academy and Georgia Military Prep School lost 30-7 to First Presbyterian Day School.

  • Baldwin Braves beat Rutland for coach's 100th win

BHS head coach Dexter Copeland got the water cooler treatment Friday for reaching the century mark win mark.

Baldwin led 21-13 at the break.

“We played well the first half but made some mistakes and got bogged down with holding penalties,” Copeland said.

After moving to 28 total points out of half, Baldwin's punt was blocked by Rutland leaving the Hurricanes with what looked like easy pickings for seven points.

BHS flexed its defensive muscle and held Rutland to a field goal.

Tony Horton, Shelton Graves, Quandarious Holsey and Quentin Barfield all showed up big.

“That was a big defensive stand at the end. We had a punt blocked, but you can't sit around and be mad at it you have to go play,” the Baldwin coach said. “Defense bowed their neck, and they stopped them. They played well. I'm so proud of them I don't know what to do.”

Jaylen Mosley, Malaquias Alexander and Lamarcus Tuft held down the edges against Rutland. Quavez Hill intercepted the Hurricanes to ice the game.

Kentavious Thomas struggled for 67 rushing yards but the receiving core picked up the slack.

BHS quarterback Tajhea Chambers threw for 299 yards due to great routes and execution by Brandon Goodman, D'Kemon Gaines and Jerrel Simmons.

Gaines had three catches for 36 yards, Simmons caught seven balls for 69 yards at one touchdown, while Goodman paced everyone with eight catches for 136 yards at one score.

Thomas did have two catches for 30 yards and two one-yard touchdown runs.

Baldwin gets to rest for a week before facing Westside Oct. 18.
