In Week 6, a versatile Bearden Bear comes up with two take-aways, a Harmony Grove junior quarterback completes 75 percent of his passes for three touchdowns and two Camden Fairview Cardinals make key plays to position their teams for wins. These student athletes have been named the Camden News "Players of the Week."

The "Players of the Week" feature is sponsored by Farmers Bank & Trust.

Usually noted for his performances at quarterback, it was Bearden's Tyler Berry's performance on defense that helped his team secure a 8-6 win against Parkers Chapel last week.

Berry came up with two fourth quarter interceptions-one in the end zone.

It was a total team effort in the Cardinals 27-20 win over Magnolia last week, but two players shined in what had been areas of concern for the Cards. Camden Fairview's Demetrius "DX" Moore and Nic Fogle made critical plays on Friday night. The Cardinals have had its up and down inside the red zone this season with turnovers and special teams, but this week, Moore was the answer with two touchdown runs of 18 yards and 9 yards.

Moore went on to finish the game averaging 9-yards per carry.

Fogle had his best night punting the ball averaging 42 yards per punt with a late punt landing at the Magnolia 1-yard line thanks to the timely hustle of the coverage team. Fogle also flipped the field with a mid-fourth quarter kick off return of 45 yards to put the Cardinals in Magnolia territory at the 30-yard line.

Harmony Grove's Gannon Bearden ability to find the right receiver led to a blowout win over Woodlawn, 64-21.

Bearden went three-for-four in the air for 155 yards.

He had touchdown passes of 37, 42 and 76 yards without any interceptions.



Camden Fairview's Dalvonte Lewis and Gabe Rucks both had season highs in rushing with Lewis registering 84 and Rucks punching in 80. Keith Johnson threw for two touchdowns in the first half. Leotis Easter picked off a Magnolia past and returned it to the Magnolia 20-yard line to set up a touchdown.

Tyree Holliman registered 10 solo tackles followed by Tyree Parham and Daterian Curtis with 6 each.

Harmony Grove' s Zach Smith went three-for-four for 105 yards and one touchdown. Jordan Hicks gained 99 yards and two touchdowns on just two carries. Kentrell Hill scored a running and a receiving touchdown. Shaun Lucas scored a 42-yard touchdown and tallied a key block in a scoring play. Jace Garcia scored on a 76-yard catch-and-run TD while battling a bad hamstring.

Bearden's Devarious Hughes had a big first quarter run to put his team in scoring position.

Cohen Word gained 45 yards on a catch and run to the Parkers Chapel 5-yard line. Jaylen Wade scored on a five yard touchdown run and Robert Miller ran the two-point conversion in. The Bearden defense limited the Parkers Chapel Trojans to just six points.

The Trojans averaged 37 points per game.
