Indians Shut Out Trojans, 42-0

The Stephens County Indians will return home with a second straight win.

Friday night, the Indians traveled to North Hall and shut out the Trojans, 42-0 to move to 2-0 on the season.

“It was a great effort by our guys,” said Stephens County Head Coach Wesley Tankersley. “They came out very prepared and ready to go and I am very proud of them.”

Ben Stowe got the scoring started for the Indians late in the first quarter with a 3-yard touchdown run. Stowe then found Cam Lacy for a 63-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter to make it 14-0.

The Indian special teams then stepped up with a touchdown as Vadole Fleming recovered a fumbled punt snap in the end zone to make it 21-0. T.J. Everett’s 1-yard touchdown run gave Stephens County a 28-0 lead at halftime.

In the third quarter, Ben Stowe threw his second touchdown pass, a 19-yarder to Kelton Cade to make it 35-0, and Everett’s second touchdown run – a 33-yarder – ended the scoring.

Cam Lacy had an interception for the Indians as well and Armand Cunningham also recovered a fumble.

According to the Georgia High School Football Historians’ Association, the win was the 500th all-time for Stephens County High School.
