Cavs come back to hand Spartans fourth loss, 42-32
CMA TAILBACK ANGE GADJI rushed for more than 200 yards with a pair of touchdowns in last Fridays 42-32 loss to the Anderson Cavaliers.
Through the first three games of the season, lack of offense has been one of the chief concerns for the Camden Military Academy football team.After having been shut out in the season opener, the Spartans scored a touchdown against North Central and two more in a week three loss to East Clarendon. Friday night in Anderson, CMA posted a season-best 32 points, but it was not enough to come away with a victory in a 42-32 loss to the host Cavaliers.One constant this season for Will Rice’s charges has been the play of tailback Ange Gadji, who had all three CMA scores coming into this game before adding two more in the Upstate on an evening in which the post-grad student ran for more than 200 yards.Had it not been for a listless first 24 minutes, in which the guests found themselves trailing 21-6 at intermission, things could have ended much differently for the Spartans.“We didn’t play real well to open the game, but we played a great third and fourth quarter,” Rice said. “If we played the first half like we did the final two quarters, it might have been a different story.”CMA got on the scoreboard for the first time late in the second quarter when quarterback Ricky Thornley found John Puhl with an 11-yard scoring toss to trim the deficit to 21-6.It was Gadji who kick-started CMA’s second half comeback when he scored on a 65-yard run on the first snap of the second half as the guests cut the lead to 21-12.
