It was a last-minute scheduled game between the Georgia Christian and Valwood on Thursday night that saw a dominate performance by the Valiant in a commanding 34-6 victory.
The Georgia Christian Generals dropped to 2-2 on the season.
The Generals had a tough time getting the offense going and had trouble stopping the Valiant offense, led by three touchdown runs in the first half.
The Valiant were able to run the ball at will and compiled 126 rushing yards in the game, including 96 in the first half alone.
“We are a spread team and that’s what we try to do,” Valwood Head Coach Ashley Anderson said. “We spread it and see what they are going to give us and throw it or run it.”
“I thought we ran our offense well,” Georgia Christian Head Coach Kent Copeland said. “We could have made one or two extra catches for yards. Alex King ran the ball unreal. We were able to get the ball moved (up the field).
Sophomore running back Alex King ran the ball 12 times for 70 yards and the lone Generals’ touchdown.
The Valiant pulled their starters after the first half of a 28-0 game, although it was not due to the score.
“We had some guys that we wanted to get some work tonight,” Coach Anderson said. “We got rained out of our first game of the season so we are a game behind. We had some guys that we wanted to get some work and once they got it, they were done.”
In the second half the Generals’ offense started to gain momentum, even though it was not the Valiant starters on the field, Coach Copeland was pleased with what he saw. GCS accumulated 41 total first half yards and 128 yards in the second half.
Georgia Christian struggled on special teams.
They gave up an opening 65-yard kickoff return that led to a touchdown. GCS also gave up a 75-yard kickoff return for a touchdown immediately after scoring their only touchdown.
The Generals were scheduled to play Tiftarea but due to injuries the game got cancelled and GCS scheduled the game against Valwood Thursday morning.
“Thanks to Valwood for giving us the opportunity to play,” Coach Kent Copeland said.
