Drew quarterback Jay Murray (No. 15) tries to avoid a rush from Forest Park defensive tackle Malik Williams in the first half of the Titans win on Thursday at Southern Crescent Stadium.
Mundy's Mill running back Rodney Smith rushed for 320 yards and two touchdowns as the Tigers defeated Mount Zion 31-12 on Thursday for their first win of the season.
Smith had scoring runs of 40 and 20 yards at Tara Stadium as the Tigers improved to 1-4 overall and 1-0 in Region 4A-AAAAA. Mount Zion dropped to 0-5 and 0-1.
"The team came out and played well," Mundy's Mill coach Greg Manior said. "This win means a lot to the team. I've been reminded the kids that we have to stay focused for the rest of our games."
Also scoring for the Tigers was defensive line Raleek Taylor, who scored on a 20-yard interception.
Darius Willis had a 2-yard touchdown run.
Drew 53, Forest Park 7: Marquis Terry scored two rushing touchdowns and Kwamie Jackson was on the receiving end of two more in the Region 4A-AAAAA contest at Southern Crescent Stadium.
