Trojans destroy Clayton 50-0 for Homecoming 2016 win

Garner posts their 3rd straight shutout in 50-0 annihilation of Clayton in the twice postponed Homecoming 2016 game. Collin Eaddy scores 3 TDs and the Trojan defense stifles the Comets who entered the game unbeaten in the GNRC. Daiveon Carrington records 4 sacks and two safeties, stopping Clayton’s only two scoring chances on the night. Eaddy dashes 18 yards for the first score and adds 45-yard score in his 138 yard first half of the game which was postponed twice due to the effects of Hurricane Matthew off the NC coast. Eaddy takes Braxton Brokenborough screen pass 62 yards to paydirt and the route was on well before halftime. After Carrington QB sacked the Comet QB in the end zone sets up a free kick, Anthony Stephenson plows over from 2-yards out for 28-0 Garner lead. After another failed 4th down attempt by the Comets,  Brokenborough 30-yard strike to DJ Harris for 35-0 Garner margin. The Comets threaten with pass to the Garner 3 but consecutive Carrington sacks forces another failed 4th down attempt that sends the Trojans to a VERY happy halftime celebration  Andreis Harris 43-yard interception return TD, his second pick of the night, another Comet safety & Donovan Evans adds 3 yard score in the second half during the NCHSAA-mandated running clock to keep Garner undefeated at 4-0 in the conference, 7-1 on the season.

Eaddy yardage moves him to 7th on the Garner all-time rushing yards list; 3 straight shutouts matches the school record set 1987 & 1988 teams (1964 team had 4 straight including exhibition win over Camp Lejeune cadets; 2016 Trojan defense has allowed 36 yards per game, well below the school record 61.7 per game by the 2000 team & now piled up 70 sacks with 19 interceptions; 10.6 points per game lowest since 2006 (10.3); 23rd straight win for Garner in the series
