Indians Blank North Hall, 34-0

Stephens County picks up a win in their home opener.

Friday night, the Indians used big plays through the air and a stout defense to shut out North Hall, 34-0, in non-region football action at the Reservation.

Head Coach Wesley Tankersley said it was a great overall performance, especially by the defense.

“We feel like we have a really good group of kids that just need the confidence they can win,” he said. “It was great for our kids to come out with a win tonight and hopefully, they can gain the confidence they need to go through the season and continue to get better.”

The Indians started strong, getting a four-yard touchdown run from Corey Ibrahim to take a 7-0 lead at the end of the first quarter.

In the second quarter, Ben Stowe connected with Gamarion Carter on a 93-yard touchdown pass to make it 13-0 at the half.

The Indians added another long touchdown pass of 82 yards from Stowe to Carter to make it 20-0 early in the third quarter.

Then in the fourth, touchdown runs of 10 yards from Zach Feaster and 29 yards from K.P. Hayes capped off the scoring.

Defensively, Kyle Watson had a fumble recovery for Stephens County.

The Indians move to 1-1 with the win, while the Trojans drop to 0-2. In other area games Friday night,
