GMC routs Buffaloes at home

MILLEDGEVILLE — In only their second home contest this season, Georgia Military College defended Davenport Field well with a big 44-16 victory over Arkansas Baptist College on Saturday.

Improving to 5-0 on the season, the Bulldogs jumped out to an early 39-10 lead at halftime and never looked back against a Buffalo squad that showed much potential in their first four ball games of the season.

“They’re off to the best start they’ve had in a number of years,” Bert Williams, head coach, said. “We were expecting a tough battle, and so we came out and executed real well in the first half there.”

GMC had a strong day defensively, with many of the Bulldogs’ defensive players getting some playing time in the contest on Saturday, which Williams admits, “I was happy to get them out there.”

Dezmin Reed led the team in total tackles against the Buffaloes with five, followed by Alonzo McGee and Jaden Le with four tackles and a fumble recovery each.

Also snagging four tackles in the contest was St. Pierre Anilus, who also had a tackle for loss as well.

Leading the Bulldogs up front was LeGrande Harley with two sacks, while Solomon Parker came away with the team’s only other sack and a forced fumble against Arkansas Baptist.

“It was very even across the board defensively,” Williams said. “Solomon Parker, he got a lot of play in the second half and did some good things to add to our depth in that position.”

Offensively, Jovon Robinson continued to show off his ability with 10 carries for 177 yards and four trips to the end zone on Saturday.

“It was another big game for Jovon,” Williams said. “Everything went well, and we were able to get out there and get a big lead and let our young guys get some reps.”
