Ayden-Grifton football brought its regular season to a close on a high note, defeating South Lenoir, 42-0, on Thursday night.

Quarterback Blake McLawhorn threw two touchdown passes on the night, both going to running back JC Darden, who looked much like his older brother, starting running back Ray Darden, who added a rushing touchdown of his own.

The Chargers’ deep stable of running backs continued to impress, as sophomore Marlon Cannon also had two rushing scores. Micheal Webb rounded out the touchdowns for Chargers (7-4,4-2) and their backfield.

“Our message for the week was to start fast and finish,” Chargers head coach Paul Cornwell said. “We scored on our first possession, and credit to South Lenoir, they went out and tried to grind us down, but we went into the half up 28-0. I told the guys at halftime to just go out and finish, which I’ve thought we haven’t done a great job of doing so far. We played hard in the second half and got some younger guys in to play, so that was great.”

The Chargers likely earned a playoff berth with the convincing win. A-G is playing well at the right time, as the offense once again exploded against the Blue Devils.

“We’re excited about the opportunity to play another week,” Cornwell said. “We know that we will probably be on the road and possibly playing a one seed, so we aren’t worried about anyone else, just us and what we do. We’re playing good defense and that’s a key. If you can go out, play good defense and don’t turn the ball over, you have a good chance to win every game.”

The Chargers will await the release of the playoff seedings Saturday. Check back with The Daily Reflector for a comprehensive look at the details.
