PAGE 2-A HOGANSVIIA.E HOME NEWS - THURSDAY, OCT. 2, 2003 s.ppo00 T00oop00 I Callaway Wins Homecoming ing, Callaway was clearly more focused to Cody Gates pass that took the By JODY HALE After starting the season with high hopes for another playoff season, the Callaway Cavaliers found themselves in a mid- season funk after dropping their first four games of the season. The Cavaliers turned in lackluster performances in each of their losses and put themselves in a position where they had to face last year&apos;s region champion Lamar County in what could have been touted as a 'must win' game. Callaway responded with a crucial win, beating the Trojans 27-21 in front of a large homecoming crowd at Callaway Stadium last Friday night. "The halfway point of the season is not where you expect to play such an important game," said Callaway head coach Claude Giddens. "But we were really struggling. Starting 0-5 would have been very demoralizing. 1-4 does- n't sound much better but at least it lets us control our future for the rest of the season." Despite the usual distractions that come with the festivities of homecom- for this game than they have been all year. Carl Epps, one of the players Giddens looks to for leadership on the field, characterized the win as a possi- ble turning point in the season. "This was big, a real big win", said Epps. "We came out with our minds made up to put together a solid game from everybody. We wanted to play football like we know we're capable." It was an Epps fourth quarter touch- down reception that proved to be the difference in the game. The Cavaliers built a 21-7 third quar- ter lead that evaporated when the high octane Lamar offense came to life with two unanswered touchdowns to tie the game midway through the final quar- ter. That's when Callaway turned in what was arguably the most important drive of the season. Starting at their own 19 yard line, Callaway drove 81 yards for the touch- down to put the Cavaliers up by six with just'over a minute left in the game. The drive was highlighted by runs Epps and Demarrion McI)owell and a Justin Bray to the Trojan 31 yard line. A Bray and a Callaway penalty put Cavaliers in a third and 25 Bray and Epps then connected on a fectly timed pass that Epps the 20 yard line into theend zone to put the home up 27-21 with just 1:19 remaining. Lamar gave the Cavaliers a When they drove to the 13 yard line. l with time running out Roger broke through the offensive line forced an errant pass on the Trojans play and sealed the Giddens, who made no his team's uninspired effort last said the game was this team is capable of. "We all feel like an incredible has been lifted off our shoulders," Giddens. "Everybody was on page tonight and we played with intensity it takes to win in this I'm real proud of this team and effort in this game."
