The Henry Horsemen moved their record to 4-0 last Saturday with a 42-0 victory over the Atlanta Agression on the road Saturday.

General manager Tyrone Barnes praised the effort of the offensive line for the team's fast start.

Anchored by Dan Woodruff and Ken Johnson, the Horsemen have averaged nearly 40 points per game in its four victories. The offensive line is also getting quality play out of A.J, Spires, T.J. Riley, and Lilton Markes.

"When you score like we have been scoring, credit has to go to the guys upfront," Barnes said. They are doing a super job."

Like it has done all year, the Horsemen spread the offensive wealth in their last victory. Quarterback Theo Maxie was 7 of 17 for two touchdowns and Brandon Shelby busted off a touchdown of 65 yard touchdown run as part of its potent offense.

The Horsemen also added two defensive touchdowns. The semi-pro football team took control of the game with 16 first quarter points.

They increased the lead to 30-0 at the half and never looked back.

"It really is starting to come together for us," Barnes said. "It wasn't perfect, but it was a good win."

After taking a week off, the Horsemen get back into action in two weeks when they travel to Carrollton for a game against the West Georgia Renegades.

The following week, the Horsemen entertain the Georgia Jets at Strong Rock Christian School.

Both teams are in their first season of play in the Georgia Developmental Football League, and are undefeated.
