CODY OWENS HAD ONE of two interceptions for CMA in Saturdays loss to the Raleigh Titans.
Having already missed the mark on one extra point kick attempt, Camden Military Academy head coach Will Rice went for the win rather than to try and extend Saturday’s game with the Raleigh Titans to another set of downs.It was the Titans, however, who snuffed out the Spartans’ two-point try in overtime to preserve a 21-20 victory, which ruined homecoming at CMA.The loss dropped the hosts to 0-6 on the season, but the decision to go for the victory rather than go to a second round of 10-yard series was not an option for the hosts.“We missed out first extra point try and I wasn’t confident with it,” Rice said, “so, we went for the win.’Trailing, 21-20, after the visitors drove 10 yards for the touchdown while getting the PAT kick after the first possession in overtime, CMA went to work with Tim Coleman under center in what was a revolving door method at quarterback for the hosts.The 6-foot-1 Coleman called his own number and scored on a keeper to draw the Spartans to within one, at 21-20. Rice never hesitated in going for the victory. But the Titans stuffed the two-point run attempt to leave with their third win in seven starts.Coleman, who had been a wide out and running back for CMA, shared the signal-calling duties with Ricky Thornley, who had started CMA’s first five games.
