GREAT FALLS — Great Falls honored its 1991 state championship team Friday night. The problem for the Red Devils was that their opponent, Chesterfield, played championship-level offense and defense rolling to a 53-0 win.
On offense, the Rams were balanced as they passed for 277 yards and rushed for 278 yards. Quarterback Dillon Rivers threw four touchdown passes, and Kendrick Melton had 13 carries for 212 yards and two touchdowns.
Defensively, the Rams held Great Falls to minus 9 yards rushing, 47 net yards and five first downs. Ajorell Mallory had three interceptions, one of which he returned for a 53-yard score. Linebacker Kyle Pollard had four sacks for Chesterfield. The Rams allowed Great Falls to cross the 50 only twice.
Lewisville 54, C.A. Johnson 32
RICHBURG Lewisville won a high-scoring affair on senior night against C.A. Johnson.
The Lions rolled up 440 total yards. Quay Walls led Lewisville (7-1, 3-1 Region 3-A) with 213 total yards.
Walls connected with Quentin McKnight on a 63-yard flea flicker for a touchdown midway through the second quarter to put the Lions ahead 27-26. The Green Hornets answered with a methodical 55-yard drive.
Walls punched in another score in the final seconds of the half to take a 34-32 lead at the break.
Anthony Eaddy paced the Green Hornets with two scores, including a 60-yard kickoff return early in the second quarter. Eaddy left the game after being injured on his first carry of the second half, a 26-yard gain.
Gaffney 49, Lancaster 7
GAFFNEY It was business as usual for a Gaffney team that continues to show no signs of the negatives that can creep into the mindset of team that's totally dominating.
Refusing to allow complacency or overconfidence to hinder their string of blowout victories, the top-ranked Indians (9-0) finally were able to perform for the home folks in the rout of Lancaster.
Gaffney's first home game since Sept. 9 was typical fare as the Indians scored on their first four possessions to lead 42-7 at the half and then sat their starters after adding one final touchdown to open the third quarter.
"We come out and play the same every week and never let up," Gaffney quarterback Joey Copeland said. "Nothing changes. Everybody continues to play good and it's another great win."
Friday's output was the Indians' lowest point total in more than a month.
The usual suspects posted their regular ridiculous numbers as Copeland completed 20 of 27 for 334 yards and six touchdowns, and receiver Quinshad Davis finished with eight catches for 207 yards and four touchdowns.
"I'm certainly very pleased (with the team continuing to play with an edge) and as long as we continue to execute on offense we're going to be in good shape," Gaffney coach Dan Jones said.
