Dominating defense carries Jackets past Emerald in conference opener...


First time in 18 seasons Jackets started at 4-0 on season...

The Greer Yellow Jackets have now passed all tests thus far and are sitting at 4-0 on the season after tonight's come from behind 28-13 win over the Emerald Vikings. Trailing 13-0 after three first half turnovers and not much success on offense, the Jackets broke through with an eight play, 57 yard touchdown drive late in the 1st half when QB Mario Cusano ran it in from 11 yards out. Nick Roberson's extra point brought Greer within 13-7 at intermission and gave them some much needed momentum. But they almost led, but then again they almost trailed 20-7. After the Greer TD, Emerald failed to catch the ensuing kickoff and Zeke Whiteside dove in and covered the ball for the Jackets at the Viking 31 with just over a minute to play in the half. But on the first play, Cusano's pass was intercepted at the goal line by Emerald's KJ Chamberlain. He looked as if he might return it 100 yards for the score, when Adrian McGee fought off 3 Viking blockers just long enough at the 25 to allow Whiteside to streak in from behind at the 10 yard line and strip the ball away during the tackle. From there Greer was able to run out the clock.

The 3rd quarter saw Greer's defense hold Emerald without a 1st down and Cusano's 6 yard pass to Xavier Wright tied the game at 13 with 2:19 to play in the quarter. Less than a minute later Greer would take their 1st lead of the game when Viking QB Isaiah Brown was scrambling and inside his own end zone, McGee was illegally blocked, giving the Jackets a safety and the 15-13 lead. Another defensive stand led to an 84 yard punt return by Dorian Lindsay to the Emerald 5. Two plays later, Cusano found Wright again, this time in the back of the end zone right in front of the goal post. Roberson's PAT made it a two score game at 22-13. Greer got it's final points moments later when on 3rd and long, Brown saw the center snap sail over his head. McGee scooped it up on the first hop and raced 10 yards for another defensive score. On the night, the Greer defense held Emerald to just 16 yards of offense on 27 plays. The longest "drive" of the night for Emerald? Four plays. Dominant performance by the Greer defense. The Sims & Karr Financial Soulutions Players of the Game for Greer were Isaiah Long on defense and Xavier Wright on offense. 

The Jackets return to Dooley Field with a 4-0 record, the first time since 1996 that Greer has been 4-0 on the season. Greer will host Travelers Rest on Homecoming Night and will now have four of their final six regular season games at home. And with the win tonight, the Jackets are 1-0 in the Peach Blossom Conference. Great job tonight to the Greer Yellow Jackets to keep fighting, play outstanding Swarm & Sting defense and find a way to win a tough game on the road!
