CRAWFORD â€“ Traveling to play teams on the road can be tough, and French Camp has certainly experienced their share of tough road contests this season.
However, the Panthers were able to take care of business on Friday night, shutting out the East Oktibbeha Titans 43-0, and picking up their first road win of the year.
Both teams struggled equally to get on the scoreboard early. The Panthers picked up a great chance early in the first quarter, after senior Jesse Hosket blocked and recovered a punt in Titansâ€™ territory, but turned it over two plays later, as Destin Covington picked off the French Camp offense.
â€śWe had some struggles early,â€ť French Camp head coach Nathan Wright said. â€śEast Oktibbeha made some plays early on both sides of the ball, but fortunately we were able to keep them off the scoreboard and we made some adjustments late in the first quarter that really helped to shift the momentum for us.â€ť
