Bryan County ran its record to 3-0 as it beat Wheeler County,  20-0, Friday night at Redskins Stadium in its home opener. 

The win did not come as easily as the final score may indicate as the Redskins were plagued by untimely penalties that slowed drives.

The Redskins were not able to ice the game until the closing minutes.

Bryan County led 7-0 thanks to a 1-yard run by Jacari Carney in the second quarter. Carney's score capped a 12 play 79 yard drive that ate seven minutes 14 seconds off the clock.

It was still 7-0 when nose guard Carlin Covington recovered a fumble at the Wheeler County 30 with 3:46 to play. Three plays later Clemons scored on a 14-yard run.

The Redskins forced a three-and-out on the ensuing series and following the Bulldogs punt Clemons bolted 68 yards on first down with 1:19 to go.

Covington then got a second fumble recovery to close it out.

Clemons finished with 164 yards on 16 Carrie's and Erin Greene had 16 carries for 121. Carney added 56 while Sean Kelly Hill was 3-for-5 for 46 yards.

 Bryan County will be off this week before going to Portal on Sept. 15. The Panthers are also expected to be unbeaten.
