Lashone Garnett rushed for four touchdowns in a 47-0 victory by Southridge against Goleman (0-3) Thursday night at Southridge Park.
“I just saw a lot of cutbacks and a lot of holes,” Garnett said. “My receivers were blocking for me out there and the O-line is getting stronger every day.”
Garnett picked up his first score on a 7-yard run and scored again when his next carry went for 51 yards. Receiver Freddie Pinder scored the only touchdown catch of the game on a 33-yard pass from Drakar Jerry. The Spartans (1-2) led 20-0 at the end of the first quarter.
In the second quarter, the Spartans got a score on another 7-yard run by Garnett. In the third quarter, Garnett scored his fourth touchdown on a 20-yard run. Two more rushing touchdowns were added in the fourth quarter.
