After gashing foes with an all-terrain ground attack in recent weeks, unbeaten Greer took to the air Friday night to crush Berea 61-0 in a Peach Blossom AAA road game.
Byrnes got the offense going quickly, as quarterback Micah Young hit Re’Jon Scott on a 22-yard route to put the Rebels ahead. Jaylan Foster then returned a Riverside punt 45 yards for a touchdown, and on the following drive, Young found Demarcus Gregory for a 52-yard score.
If Blue Ridge receiver Jason Sammons hauls in a difficult diving catch in the end zone with little time left, the outcome of Friday night’s contest at Traveler’s Rest might have been different.
As it stands, the Devildogs defeated the Tigers 33-28, sending them to a 2-5 mark on the season.
The Peach Blossom AAA championship is almost within Greer’s reach, but the Yellow Jackets must overcome several hurdles during the stretch run of the 2015 football season, beginning with Chapman.
Just a year after one of the school’s best seasons in recent memory, the Warriors are struggling to give anybody on their schedule a game.
The Eagles could not hang on for their third region win of the season, falling to Southside 27-16 at home last Friday night.
Eastside (4-3, 2-2) has now dropped its last two games after opening region play 2-0.
