Redskins even record

Bryan County High School improved to 2-2 overall and 1-0 in Region 2-AA with a 33-21 win over previously unbeaten Groves last Friday in Pembroke.

The Redskins, who take on No.5-ranked Benedictine on Friday at Savannah State, piled up 317 yards of offense against the Rebels. Senior running back Tre Smith led the way with 106 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries, while junior running back Dominique Mock added 94 yards and a score on 20 carries and senior quarterback Jeremy McClendon carried eight times for 64 yards and a touchdown.

McClendon also completed 4-of-6 passes for 53 yards and a touchdown. Kajana Dixon caught three of those passes for 28 yards and a score. Willie Lavant had one catch for 20 yards and A.J. Simmons added a five-yard reception.

No defensive stats were available.

Benedictine opened the season with a 24-21 loss to Greater Atlanta Christian, the No. 1 Class AA school in the state, but since then has beaten Liberty County 44-13 and Bacon County 47-0.
