The Burke County senior quarterback ran for four touchdowns and passed for another – all in the first half – as the Bears rolled to a 55-0 win over Hephzibah.

Burke County, the No. 2 team in Class AAAA, notched its first win after having its season opener two weeks ago at Thomson cancelled due to lightning – the Bears led that contest 21-0 in the second quarter when it was called. Last week, Burke County had a bye.

“We needed to play some football tonight,” Bears coach Eric Parker said. “We’ve been kind of sitting on the shelf, not getting a chance to play, getting a little bit of teaser at Thomson. That was the big thing, getting a chance to get out here and start doing what we do on Friday nights.”

In 14 minutes against Thomson, Green scored three touchdowns and added 235 yards of total offense in 14 minutes of action against Thomson. But the cancellation erased his stats.

In his first official action, Green picked up where he left off. On the first play from scrimmage, the speedster broke off a 25-yard run. He followed with runs of 17 and 5 yards.

With Green running the high-speed, up-tempo offense, the Bears took the opening kickoff and went 80 yards in six plays. Donqual Young capped the drive with a 14-yard run 101 seconds into the contest, the first of his two scores.

Then, Green took over, recording touchdowns on the next five drives. He finished with 187 rushing yards on nine carries and added 69 yards on 4 of 5 passing.

“Everything moved fast,” he said. “In practice, our whole team moves fast. We always focus on speed. So if we can keep the tempo fast, everything will run smooth.”

Hephzibah (1-1) allowed 421 yards of total offense while gaining just 44 total yards.

“We showed a lot of fight,” Hephzibah coach John Bowen. “It just got away from us. That pace will just wear you out.”


PLAY OF THE GAME: Quarterback Donquell Green broke around the right side, hurdled a defender at the 35 and darted down the sideline for a 58-yard touchdown run to give Burke County a 14-0 lead less than three minutes into the game.

STAR OF THE GAME: Green had 256 total yards of offense by halftime.

WHY BURKE COUNTY WON: The Bears’ offense was unstoppable.

WHY HEPHZIBAH LOST: The Rebels had no answer for Green and couldn’t muster any offense.

NEXT: Coffee at Burke County, 7:30, Friday. Hephzibah at Westside, 7:30, Friday.

Act like you've won before. Crissake, the score was 55 to zip, you gotta crow? How bout dig through your daddy's stuff, may have to reach back to yo Grandpa, and dig up a fragment of class. And then, try not to act like the classless Thomson fans. Just an idea. Cause guess what, you won't be good forever. The sun don't shine on the same dogs butt all the time.
