The T.C. Williams football team fell to South County 44-37 at Parker-Gray Memorial Stadium Saturday in a game that featured big plays and a heartbreaking finish for the Titans, according to The Washington Post.
The Titans (4-2, 2-1 Patriot District) couldn’t capitalize on 13 penalties for 135 yards from the Stallions (5-1, 3-0 Patriot), despite a huge day from senior tailback Malik Carney.
Carney, a North Carolina commit, rushed for 233 yards and two scores on 15 carries. He found the end zone on runs of 89 and 85 yards, helping the Titans dig out from a 21-0 first-quarter deficit.
Quarterback Darius Holland added to the Titans’ big-play display with a 49-yard touchdown run in the third quarter and a 37-yard scoring strike to senior receiver Alexander Bledsoe in the fourth quarter. The touchdown pass pulled the Titans within six at 44-37.
A desperation pass from Holland late in the fourth quarter was broken up in the end zone, sending the Titans to just their second loss of the campaign.
Holland finished the game with 123 yards on 6-for-29 passing and 68 yards rushing with no turnovers. Sophomore tailback Malique Booth rushed for 58 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries.
T.C. Williams travels to Lee on Friday, Oct. 18 for its next game. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m.
