Appomattox blanks William Campbell on Raider Senior Night

Tonight at Appomattox County High School, the hometown Raiders remained undefeated in the 2020-21 season by shutting out visiting William Campbell 53-0 on Raider Senior Night. 

In the two games played between the teams this year, the Raiders have outscored the Generals by a combined 102-0. 

Early in the first quarter, the Generals had the Raiders pinned at their two-yard line but halfback Jonathan Pennix scored on a breakaway 98-yard run to give Appomattox its first points 2:13 into the game. 

Pennix's long-distance run would prove to be the only score needed to win, but there was still nearly a full game left to play. 

Running back Keyshawn Baker compiled two touchdown runs in the first half, the first one being an 80-yarder. The second was an eight-yard run that was set up by a defensive fumble recovery by teammate A.J. Moore.

Tre Lawing scored on a quarterback keeper and tossed touchdown passes to Jordan Scott and Ervis Davin.

Tez Booker continued to make explosive plays for the Raiders, as he has all season, scoring on a screen pass that he took 40 yards, and later returning an interception 96 yards for the team's last score of the game in the third quarter. 

Appomattox (5-0) plays its final regular season game next Friday at Nelson County.
