by Benita Fuzzell

South Fulton Middle School Red Devils defeated Ballard County, 28-14, during a home game Sept. 1.

Ballard was first to score in the first quarter of play, but the Red Devils answered back on a 20 yard run by Trevor Stunson. The two-point attempt was no good, and at least for the moment, Ballard held on to the lead, 8-6.

Mason Parrish made a four yard run in, for the Devils’ second quarter TD, and Grant Joyner connected with Jesse Davis on the two-point conversion, as South Fulton took hold of contest for good.

Stunson found the end zone for the Devils twice in the third quarter, on an 11-yard run and a 53-yard sprint. Lejend Everett made good on the two-point conversion from the 11 yard run, but the same attempt on the 53 yard run-in was no good.

Ballard managed one more touchdown, in their 28-14 loss to the Devils.

In Rushing, Stunson was 10 for 142 yards, Everett, 8 for 87, Carson Choate, 5 for 49, Parrish, 7 for 27, and Joyner, 6 for -17.

Grant Joyner connected on three of four passes, for 35 yards.

Carson Choate was good on one of his two passes, for 41 yards.
