High school football is back and though fan turnout was not quite as expected due to rain there was good attendance at the local games this past Friday.

Greenville High School and Georgiana School were the only varsity football teams to have games this week.

Greenville High School

The Greenville varsity football team won Friday’s home non-conference game against the Hillcrest Jaguars of Evergreen by a score of 15-0.

It was back and forth all night as both teams threatened several times deep in enemy territory but Greenville High came away with the successes in the red zone.

In the second quarter, Tiger Jacob Foster scored on a 30-yard run and then again in the fourth quarter on a three-yard run to give Greenville the win. Foster gained 120 yards on 14 rushes against Hillcrest.

Greenville’s game against the Mattie T. Blount Leopards this Friday has been cancelled. They will next play the Charles Henderson Trojans in Troy.
