| A two-score halftime deficit was no problem for the Blue Jackets.
A blocked PAT by Aynor’s DQ Nash ultimately started the comeback the Blue Jackets since the Swamp Foxes couldn’t convert the two-point conversion on their next scoring drive.
Damion Riggins scored on a two-yard rush in the third quarter for Aynor’s first score, and quarterback Nathan Peeples completed a pass to Nash on the two-point conversion to cut the Blue Jackets’ deficit to four. Ronique Smith then caught a six yard pass from Peeples in the fourth quarter, which sealed the deal for Aynor.
The Blue Jackets had possession of the ball for 11 minutes and 30 seconds in the fourth quarter as they forced Marion to turn the ball over twice.
Aynor’s defense was helped by BJ Haywood as he recorded 5 tackles (one for loss), and Cole Capps who had two tackles (both for loss), three assists, and one fumble recovery.
