The members of the Pfafftown Packers Jr. Midget squad flexed their muscle over the weekend when they took on the Lewisville Titans.

The American Football League matchup was held at Northwest Middle School, home of the Packers for over 10 years.

The Packers got things started on defense. On the opening drive, Titans quarterback Ethan Russell was sacked in the backfield on fourth down. The Packers took over inside their own 15 yard line following the turnover on downs.

The turnover turned into quick points for the Packers. Daniel Moyer Jr. found running room on the right side of the Titans defense for the first score of the day. Jordan Timmons added the extra point for the Packers putting them ahead 7-0.

After a quick three plays, the Titans offense was unable to gain a first down and was forced to punt.

Packers return specialist Tazhae Woods fielded the punt at the 50 yard line, danced around a few defenders and raced into the end zone. Woods added the extra point as well, pushing the Packers’ lead to 14.

The Titans defense didn’t seem to have a answer for the Packers’ rushing attack. By the end of the first quarter, the Packers had added two more touchdowns, one by G’Mone Wilson and another by Jordan Timmons.

The Packers added a number of touchdowns in the second quarter as well. Going into halftime, the score was 44-0.
Picking up where they left off, the Packers continued to dominate the Titans in the second half.

Jeremiah Jackson caught the second half kickoff and went 60 yards seemingly untouched into the end zone for another Packer touchdown.
Although it was a very long day for Titans head coach Greg Atwood, he said he was proud of the way his team fought even when they got down early.

“We did not give up,” said Atwood. “It’s easy to quit especially when you’re losing, but our guys didn’t give up and fought until the end.”
A number of Atwood’s players had some standout plays for the Titans, including: Andrew Danley, Ethan Russell, Nick Pyne, James Bennett and Alex Boner.
An assistant coach from the Titans said he believes the team has what it takes to turn the season around.

Packers head coach Gary Warren was pleased with the way his team played, but said the team still had a number of mental mistakes that will be corrected as the season goes on.
“The team played well today, but we have to cut down on our mental mistakes,” said Warren. “Those mistakes could hurt us in the future if we don’t correct it now.”
Key performers for the Packers include Rahkiem Morris, Jashauwyne Stephens, Antwan Spring Jr., and Jaylon Weathers.

The Pfafftown Packers and the Lewisville Titans are both members of the Piedmont Youth Football and Cheer League, a member of the American Youth Football organization. The Jr. Midget division is for boys and girls between ages 11-13. The division also has a set weight limit of 155 pounds.
