Senior Colby Lawrence led the team with 82 yards rushing and a touchdown, while Rekarche Griffin went 4 for 13 through the air for 39 yards.
The Bulldogs’ leading receiver on the night was Chris Burney with two receptions for 24 yards, while Parker Williams led the defense with five tackles and Nick Bentley snagged an interception in the contest.
While the first outing for GMC Prep was not the one Simpson and his players were expecting, he admits that the Bulldogs fought for four quarters and continue to fight every down.
“The biggest take away is the kids continued to fight to the final horn,” Simpson said. “We mounted a nice drive at the end of the ball game, and people came in and stepped up.”
After a bittersweet week for local high school football, all three teams return home next Friday night, Sep. 6 at 7:30 p.m. with JMA taking on Tattnall Square, GMC Prep against Glascock County and BHS will compete with rival Peach County.
