Trick play is highlight of Spartans' win



GLENN HILLS 27, HEPHZIBAH 0

PLAY OF THE GAME: With Glenn Hills backup quarterback Jeffery Cannon lined up in the shotgun and starting signal caller Michael Evans lined up as a receiver, the Spartans caught the Rebels off guard. Cannon threw left to Evans, who threw to Demontrez Calloway for a 67-yard score.

WHY GLENN HILLS WON: The Spartans' defensive front-8 was in the Hephzibah backfield all night. Glenn Hills had four sacks and forced an intentional grounding penalty before knocking Rebels quarterback Chris White out of the game.

WHY HEPHZIBAH LOST: The quarterback tandem of White and Connell Reddick completed only 15.8 percent of its passes with four interceptions.

STAR OF THE GAME: Calloway had 112 total yards and scored three times.

QUOTABLE: "We were setting it up with our rush and waiting for the right time to spring it on them." - Glenn Hills coach Ernest Tolbert, on the 67-yard gadget play.

WHAT'S NEXT: Glenn Hills (1-1) travels to Josey next week, while Hephzibah (0-2) returns home Friday to host Monroe Area.
