Panther take ‘W’ at homecoming
NICOLE NORRIS/THE GREENVILLE STANDARD
The Georgiana Panthers are 6-0 for the season after Friday night’s homecoming game against the St. Luke’s Wildcats.
At the end of four quarters, Coach Powell had led his team to a 56-35 win.
“It wasn’t pretty, but we got the win,” said Powell of the Panther victory.
The Wildcats meant business and a win for the home team would be a hard fought battle, as the first quarter ended 8-8. At the half Georgiana was on top, but a touchdown and PAT were all that seperated the two teams.
“St. Luke’s did a great job of executing their game plan,” Powell said of the Wildcats.
The third quarter started with a score of 29-21. The Panthers buckled down and by the final buzzer they had pulled out the win.
Offensively, Cameron Longmire and Jamichael Stallworth led the team. Longmire had 143-yards rushing with two touchdowns and Stallworth had 202 passing yards with four touchdowns.
Powell said, “We made enough plays offensively to stay ahead and win.”
Also taking the ball into the endzone for the Panthers were Kyle Powell, Christian Williams, Jamarcus Sims and DeArion Squaire.
Game changers on the other side of the ball were: Lecedric Haynes, five assists and six solos; Cameron Longmire, five assists and five solos; and Jamarcus Sims, four assists and five solos.
The Panthers are on the road to Red Level this week. The game will begin at 7 p.m.
“This is another good football team that will challenge us. Hopefully we can get another win,” said Powell.
