The Providence Day Chargers won 28-16 against rival Country Day in a game that had it’s share of big plays and momentum swings. Country Day jumped out to a quick 9-0 lead on the strength of an interception on the 2nd play from scrimmage and capitalizing on good field position after a 3 and out on defense.
Providence Day got into the game on the strength of QB Cody Cater’s arm and Nickel Fields quick abilities from the running back position. Providence Day would go on to have 28 unanswered points as Cater and WR Jesiah Davis started hooking up on several deep passes down the field and collected a couple of touchdowns as a result.
Country Day didn’t go away though as Tabor was able to escape the pocket and find Stephen Payne for a TD that cut the lead to 28-16 in the 3rd quarter. Tabor almost hit Payne once again on a deep post route as he scrambled in the early 4th quarter, but just missed on the play.
However, Country Day was able to overcome that near miss and drive down to inside the 5 yard line in the middle of the 4th quarter. The play of the game was then made by star DE Jacolbe Cowan of Providence Day. Country Day tried to run their own version of “Philly Special”, the play made famous by the Eagles in the Super Bowl 2 years ago, however on the attempted throw back to the QB, Cowan batted the ball, tipped it to himself, and raced over 80 yards in the opposite direction, nearly scoring.
Though Country Day would end up getting a nice interception at the goalline by Sam Gilbert, that was their last real threat to score. With the win, Providence Day remains undefeated, while Country Day falls to 3-1.
