Panthers feel Bulldog bite
even turnovers proved to be much more than the Panthers could overcome as Greenwood defeated Yazoo County 42-0 Friday.
The Panthers (1-6) were hoping to pick up the team’s first conference win after falling 26-6 at Amanda Elzy the previous week.
The home field offered little advantage, however, against a versatile Bulldogs offense and an overwhelming defense.
Greenwood took advantage of a Panthers offensive miscue early to put the first points on the board.
Calvin Lucas scooped up a fumble and raced to the endzone for a 7-0 lead with 2:37 left in the first quarter.
Raheem Sanders grabbed a 40-yard touchdown pass with 11:26 to go in the second to make it 13-0 after the extra point kick failed.
Sanders then turned around grabbed an interception to set up a Greenwood offensive drive that ended with Sammy Epps catching a touchdown reception to make it 20-0 with 1:20 to go in the second quarter.
