Cosby Rushing Attack Too Much for Matoaca

Midlothian, VA (WWBT)- Initially, Cosby and Matoaca were set to kick off their respective seasons on Thursday night on the Warriors' home field.  As of Thursday, however, Matoaca did not have power at its football stadium, so the game was moved to Friday at Cosby, and the Titans made the most of their added home game.

Cosby took advantage of a solid running game and topped the Warriors, 42-27, to jump to 1-0 on the season.  The Titans wasted no time getting on the board as Jainard Lambert took the handoff and busted a 74 yard touchdown run on the first play from scrimmage to give Cosby an immediate 7-0 lead.  After the defense forced Matoaca to punt, the Titans would add another score and hold a 14-0 lead after one quarter.  The Warriors would chip into the lead near the end of the half, scoring a touchdown, but a failed PAT kept the score at 14-6 heading into halftime.  The second half saw Cosby come out strong again, as C.J. Stancil rushed for a 26 yard score to make it 21-6, but the Warriors had an answer, scoring 15 unanswered points to tie the game at 21.  That's when the Titans pulled away and slammed the door.  Cosby scored three straight touchdowns, including Lambert's second rushing TD of the game.

Lambert finished the day with 191 rushing yards on eleven carries and the two touchdowns.  Stancil stepped up big on the defensive end, tallying eight tackles to go along with the 26 yard TD rush.

The Titans will host Hopewell next Friday, while Matoaca will travel to Manchester.
