Irby redeemed himself by running 45 yards to bring the team 13 yards to goal. Liggett completed the rush by running the touchdown the next play.
On the defensive side of the ball, Charles Jones was all over the field making at least three solo tackles and assisting as well. Carter Kelley and Kinzer Pratt were helping the defense greatly.
In the second quarter Greenfield continued to make big plays but was slowed down by Stewart County’s defense.
