Forest Hills defeated Charlotte Latin last night in Marshville, 16-14, behind a dominant defensive performance.
Dominant, you say? The score doesn't always tell the whole story. Two Forest Hills' turnovers, one offense and one on special teams, provided Latin with good field position, and good teams cash in on those opportunities.
The Yellow Jackets prevented Latin from any sustained drives on offense thanks to a lightning-fast defensive squad that snuffed out every ball carrier. The pass rush was equally up to harassing the Latin quarterback all night. As a result, until the game stats post, I imagine the Latin first downs were minimal, as were total yards on offense.
