"It was very hard fought, but our kids never gave up," said King George Coach Jeff Smith. "Essex was so big on defense, it was hard to move them," Smith said. "But our kids stayed with the game plan and we found a way to win." The victory over Essex follows a Fox- es 72-0 opening win over Washin Drs.

The Foxes play at home against Liberty Friday at 7 p.m. and then travel to Louisa on Sept. 16. "Each week our schedule gets tougher and we will need to get better," Smith said. King George wingback Jordan Aley scored two touchdowns and rushed for 129 yards in the win over Essex. And, Cameron Zylonis pow- ered for 51 yards as the Foxes rolled up 227 yards on the ground with their speedy offense. But it was the second week in a row the Foxes defense, under return- ing defensive coordinator Robbie Henderson, was a key to the vic- tory and held an opponent scoreless. Defensive back Ashton Howard re- turned an interception 85 yards for a touchdown to close out the King George win. "Our kids have bought into what we are doing on defense," said Smith. "Coach Henderson has made a big difference this year. We are putting up points, but we are also stopping teams." Keys on the defense are defensive end Jamal Clark, nose guard Hunt- er Dobson, linebacker Remington Green and defensive backs Devin Williams, Jordan Aley and Ashton Howard. "It was a good win for both the Of- fense and the defense," said Smith. "It went four quarters, but we found a way to win." That is something fans of the Foxes are hoping will continue as the sea- son progresses.
