Sports, Team FYN Sports, TeamFYNSports

The Hayesville Yellow Jackets hosted the Swain Co. Maroon Devils in a conference game Friday night. Swain a traditionally strong program were able to avenge last year’s loss to Hayesville. The Maroon Devils run game was strong all night long and they hit several big passes when needed. While Hayesville struggled with penalties and turnovers, going on to lose 42-14.

1st Half:

Hayesville received to start the game and they were moving the ball pretty well. Until a few penalties followed up by an interception gave Swain the ball. Swain put together a string of big plays and put together a six-play 60-yard scoring drive to strike first. Hayesville would go three and out on their next drive punting to Swain. The defense came up with a big stand, getting the ball back to offense quickly. Hayesville got great starting field position and quickly scored themselves via a Caldwell designed run. Tied up 7-7, Swain would respond in a big way, Scoring 21 unanswered points to take a dominating lead into halftime.

2nd Half:

Hayesville would hang tough in the second half only getting outscored by 1 touchdown. With the second coming with mostly JV’s in the game for both teams. Offensively they got a Taylor McClure touchdown run.  As well Jake McTaggart came back from suspension in the second half and made a big impact. Yet the game was too far out of reach for it to change the outcome. As well Kyle Lunsford had a great night and would have been well over 100 receiving yards had a 50 plus yard catch not been called back because of penalties.
