SPIVEY'S CORNER -- Rosewood ran into a buzzsaw as Midway earned a 44-7 victory on Friday night.

Midway jumped ahead 7-0 on the second play of the game and made the score 14-0 on its second possession.

Trailing 21-0 in the second quarter, the Eagles got their only score on a three-yard plunge from Spencer Garrison. The momentum was short-lived, however, as the Raiders drove the ball into field goal range before the intermission and tacked on three points.

"I think right now because of our youth on defense we are making some mistakes that are allowing our opponents to keep drives going," Rosewood head coach Robert Britt said. "We need to do a better job of getting off the field on third down."

Aaron Thurman led the Raiders with 133 yards and two touchdowns.

Josh Davis paced the Rosewood offense with 115 yards rushing on nine carries. Garrison added 107 yards on 26 carries.

Rosewood (1-2 overall) visits North Stokes next Friday.
