Red Elephants score another shut-out
Thacker, who broke his thumb in practice three weeks ago, lost out on helping seal a 56-0 victory over Gilmer two weeks ago, but he returned with fervor Friday night to show fans his mettle. Thacker caught a 65-yard touchdown pass from Junior Stephen Edwards in the first quarter. The senior Elephant also executed a 23-yard interception return to set up a touchdown in the third quarter. He completed the touchdown by diving the final three yards over the goal line. Also outstanding was Mike Malone, a senior Red Elephant, who scored a second touchdown on a 34-yard run. Malone rushed for 115 yards and totaled three touchdowns during the game. Stephen Edwards scored a touchdown and threw for 151 yards. Intense pressure on Dragon running back Robert Bridges limited him to 29 yards for the game, 128 below his game average. Gainesville has allowed only 4.5 points per game. This is the fourth shutout of the season. If Gainesville wins over Fanin County next Friday night, the Elephants will clinch the Region 7-AAA title and host the first-round playoff game against the fourth seed from Region 6-AAA.
