The Kenston Forest School varsity football team made its 8-man football debut Friday night, and the Kavaliers turned in a solid performance that translated into a 36-19 road victory over archrival Brunswick Academy.

“We played really well for the first game,” Kavs Head Coach Tom Inge said. “Obviously, there’s a lot of things that we see we need to work on.”

Sophomore running back Jah’Tavious Houston fueled much of Kenston Forest’s success on offense, running for an incredible 308 yards and five touchdowns on 12 carries.

“Jah was one of the guys who worked really hard over the summer and really transformed his body in one summer and showed up ready to play, so we expect big things from him every game,” Inge said. “However, we have other kids who could explode like that also.”

Sophomore quarterback Moewuante Morrison ended up with five carries for 51 yards.

The Kavs were stout on defense and were led by sophomore linebacker Thomas Inge, who recorded 14 tackles and a forced fumble. Freshman linebacker Trey Lewis had eight tackles, an interception and a forced fumble and senior linebacker Sam Hodges finished with 12 tackles and a sack.
