Biggersville began their district slate on Friday with a home game against the Myrtle Hawks in what was Myrtle’s first ever district game.
The Lions rolled to a 46-20 victory over the visiting Hawks to move to 3-1 overall and 1-0 in district. After two by weeks in the first part of the season, Friday night’s game marked the first of 7 straight district matches.
Biggersville jumped out to a 14-0 first quarter lead behind a pair of touchdown runs, one from Goldman Butler and one from Quinton Knight. Knight also hit JaRell Jones with a 60 yard completion in the first. The speedy Jones also took a reverse for a 17 yard touchdown in the first half to give Biggersville a 20-7 first half advantage.
In the third quarter, Myrtle got within a single score after AI Nugent’s 2nd rushing touchdown moved the score to 20-14 but an unsuccesful onside kick game great field position to Biggersville.
Biggersville went on to get 3 more rushing touchdowns from Butler and picked up a score on a Knight to Zae Davis completion to close the door on the game.
Butler and Bryson Pollard led the team with 11 tackles.
