ACCS defeats Columbia Academy 42-14

NATCHEZ — Jakarius Caston accounted for three touchdowns, two on offense and one on defense, all in the first quarter as the Adams County Christian School Rebels defeated the Columbia Academy Cougars 42-14 Friday night at Bobby Marks Stadium.

Ras Pace threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Holden Smith with 9:02 left in the first quarter to give Columbia Academy a 6-0 lead. It was all ACCS the rest of the quarter.

Caston scored on a four-yard run and caught a pass from Sterling Yarbrough for the ensuing two-point conversion to give the Rebels the lead for good at 8-6 with 6:55 to go in the opening quarter.

Caston then picked off a pass and returned it 12 yards for a touchdown just 40 seconds later. Jasin Wesberry’s extra point gave ACCS a 15-6 lead. Yarbough hooked up with Caston on a 15-yard TD pass with 1:08 remaining in the quarter for a 21-6 Rebels lead.

Corey Sewell added a defensive touchdown of his own when he recovered a fumble in the end zone and Yarbrough’s two-point conversion pass to Caston gave the Rebels a commanding 29-12 lead with 8:58 left in the second quarter Yarbrough added another touchdown pass, this time a 19-yarder to Yohan Thompson midway through the second quarter and he scored on a one-yard run midway through the third quarter for a 41-12 advantage.

Caston ended up with six carries for 31 yards and a touchdown to go with two catches for 30 yards and a touchdown. Yarbrough went 6-for-12 passing for 82 yards with two touchdowns and one interception.

The Rebels’ defense held Columbia Academy to minus-22 yards rushing and forced four turnovers.

The game was marred by 27 combined penalties for 275 total yards and a lightning delay in the second quarter.

ACCS (4-0) hosts Oak Forest Academy for homecoming next Friday at 7 p.m.
