CLEMMONS — After two weeks on the sidelines because of COVID-19, West Forsyth injected some excitement back into its football season by blasting visiting Reynolds 42-12 on Friday night.
The Titans cashed in on three long scoring drives in the first half, while chalking up better than 250 yards of offense to run their record to 3-0 overall and 1-0 in Central Piedmont 4-A play.
West’s offense road-graded Reynolds throughout, piling up 484 rushing yards, with tailbacks Jevante Long and Nasion Johnson combining for 461 yards and four touchdowns. The Titans bounced back from two weeks on the sidelines after the discovery of COVID in the program.
The Titans missed games with CPC rivals East Forsyth and Glenn. They have games with Reagan and Davie remaining. It took them almost the entire first quarter to score, with Johnson getting the final yard in a 98-yard scoring drive.
The Titans' defense forced five turnovers.
Jevante Long, 24 carries for 280 yards, two touchdowns
Nasion Johnson, 17 carries for 181 yards, two touchdowns.

The Titans ground down the Demons’ defense, scoring on drives of 98, 48, 64 and 90 yards. They piled up 484 rushing yards on 48 carries. Long gained 172 yards on 17 carries in the first half alone, breaking off eight runs longer than 10 yards. Of his 24 carries, 13 went for at least 10 yards.
Davis had three turnovers in the first half: two fumbles and a pass interception. A muffed snap ended one Reynolds threat, and an interception ended another in West territory.
