After a wild fourth quarter that included four lead changes, Parkwood came up short falling to Forest Hills 27-23. The Rebels fell to
0-2. Forest Hills scored the gamewinner with 1:37 left in the fourth, when senior quarterback Jai Rorie hit senior receiver Keeshawn Tyson on a
slant from seven yards out. Parkwood had one last chance on the ensuing drive, but Jackets sophomore safety Tyquan Rushing intercepted a deep pass to secure the win. The Rebels retook the lead (23-20) on another TD run by Drakeford. The score was aided by a 39-yard reception by junior Austin Cain on the previous play. Drakeford led Parkwood with 119 yards and two scores on 24 carries, while junior Wyne McGriff added a 79-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the closing seconds of the first half. The Rebels also got a standout performance from junior Kyle Knox, who blocked a punt for a safety, recorded a tackle for loss, deflected a pass and caught three passes for a team-high 72 yards. Parkwood hosts Cox Mill Friday Aug 31st.
