When DeMatha's Jermaine Johnson fumbled a punt return to start the fourth quarter, he was devastated. He clutched his helmet as he trotted to the sideline, shaking his head. The No. 8 Stags were up nine but susceptible to an upset by No. 12 Friendship Collegiate, which was taking over at DeMatha's 20-yard line because of his turnover.
"I just told myself it's all behind me and everything is for the best," Johnson said. "Make another play and don't drop the punt."
The DeMatha defense didn't allow a yard on the following possession, as Friendship turned the ball over on downs. On the ensuing drive, Johnson made up for his mistake. He took a bubble screen 50 yards, and DeMatha scored a few plays later and never looked back, escaping Saturday night with a 27-18 victory on the road.
