The Richmond Hill and Bryan County football teams finished their spring practices Friday with a three-way scrimmage at Wildcat Stadium, facing off against each other on the gridiron for the first time in several years.
The evening began with Richmond Hill taking on McIntosh County Academy, followed by Bryan County facing MCA. The evening was capped off by the Wildcats against the Redskins. Each contest lasted two quarters, with a running clock in the second quarter and no defensive rushes on kickoffs, punts or extra point attempts.
Richmond Hill shutout MCA 23-0 and Bryan County 24-0, while the Redskins and MCA tied 7-7.
“Our offense showed that even though we lost some major fire power last year, we are still highly efficient and can score from anywhere on the field,” Wildcats Coach Matt LeZotte said. “Our defense played as physical as any team since I’ve been here. This is the most depth we’ve ever had across the board.”
Luke Carter was 9-for-13 passing for 185 yards and three touchdowns for Richmond Hill, while Aaron Bedgood was 4-for-5 for 53 yards and a score. Bedgood also caught two touchdowns, as did Kollins Pettaway. Jalen Rouse ran the ball 11 times for 86 yards and a touchdown.
On defense, Stephen Henderson had six tackles, including a sack, and forced a fumble. Anthony Salazar hit a 47-yard field goal and all four extra point attempts.
The Redskins scored on their opening drive against MCA behind 58 yards on three carries by Terron Dixon. Dazon Anderson scored on a 5-yard run, followed by Jack Perry’s extra point.
