St. Stephens used a 56-yard touchdown run by Matt Williams and a momentum swing going into half-time to collect a 56-36 win over North Buncombe on Friday.
The win marks the Indiansâ€™ third in as many weeks and sets up St. Stephens (3-5, 1-2) to take on 3a rival Fred T. Foard next week.
Trailing 20-14 in the second quarter, Williams touchdown run lifted the Indians to a 21-20 lead to end the opening half.
After Jon Sweet gave St. Stephens a 28-20 lead, the Indians put together back-to-back scoring drives that both ended with Williams crossing the goal line.
Williams finished the night with 117 yards and three rushing touchdowns, as well as a passing touchdown to Ian Martin.
With a 42-20 lead going into the fourth quarter, the Indians extended their lead, first with Williamsâ€™ touchdown pass to Martin, and then with a 17-yard run by Jarnarion Knox. North Buncombe scored late but it wasnâ€™t enough to disrupt the Indiansâ€™ war path.
On the ground St. Stephens was led by Sweet who rushed for 200 yards and three touchdowns on 19 carries.View more articles in:
