Greer opens 2015 season with 40-8 win over Clinton...


 

The Greer Yellow Jackets went on the road tonight to kick off the 2015 football season against one of their oldest and toughest rivals, the Clinton Red Devils, and came away with an impressive 40-8 victory. These two teams, meeting for the 48th time, had played twice last season. Greer trailed in both, but came back to win each, first on opening night then again in the first round of the playoffs. Tonight there was no such drama. Greer turned away the Red Devils as DJ Sitton and Adrian McGee made a tackle at the one yard line to thwart Clinton's opening drive. The Jackets then went 99 yards in eight plays, the last being a 26 yard scoring pass from Mario Cusano to Dorian Lindsey. Nick Roberson's PAT gave Greer an early first quarter lead at 7-0. Clinton hit a 60 yard pass play that set up the Red Devils again inside the 10, but once again Greer's defense would get a 4th down stop. The Jackets led 13-0 at the break when McGee scored on a 10 yard run capping a 63 yard drive.

The 3rd quarter was a big one for the Jackets. After recieving the opening kick, Greer quickly marched down the field going 58 yards in just six plays and McGee got his 2nd TD on a one yard plunge. The two point conversion was good on a pass to Zack Glidden, but an unknown pentalty erased that and Greer led 19-0. Just four minutes later the Red Devils were punting again and this time Troy Pride returned in 60 yards for a touchdown. Roberson made it 26-0 with the extra point . Lindsay got the ball back quickly with an interception for the Jackets and once again they took advantage of the opportunity. Despite two holding calls along the way Greer reached the end zone on a 6 yard Cusano run to make it 33-0 with still 3:45 to go in the quarter. Clinton finally put together a scoring drive as they went 80 yards in 8 plays. QB Charlie Craven hit Tay Cook with a 22 yard pass, then the Red Devils converted a two point try. But on the ensuing kickoff, McGee scooped up a squib kick at the 40, then using his running back skills in extreme traffic early in the return, broke free just past midfield and outran the angles to paydirt for a 60 yard kickoff return. Roberson closed out the scoring for the night with the PAT to make it 40-8.

Coach WIll Young was pleased with his team and the effort they gave in game 1. "We worked hard & played hard, that's the thing I was most pleased with. We got a win, and we got some good film to watch, so that we can learn how to use tonight to get better. Our offense, moved the ball, we hit some big plays, and our defense nearly shut out a team that scored 30 last week. So all around, I'm pleased with the way we started tonight". The Sims and Karr Players of the Game tonight were Travigea Ware from the defensive tackle spot and Adrian McGee on offense with over 100 yards rushing and three TDs.

Next week the Jackets will host the Riverside Warriors at Dooley Field for their home opener. Hope to see everyone next week! Congrats to the Jackets on a great 40-8 win at Clinton!
