It didn’t take long on Friday for the Georgia Christian Generals to show that, despite not fielding a football team in more than 46 years, they still knew how to win.
The Generals conquered First Presbyterian Christian Academy, 55-12, at Long Bell Stadium in FPCA’s first home game of the season.
The Generals scored on nearly every drive in the first half.
The Highlanders did respond after the Generals’ first touchdown drive when Dylan Stewart ran 65 yards for a touchdown. The 2-point conversion attempt failed.
Generals quarterback Cole Copeland completed a 32-yard pass to Jerry Beverly, which set up a rushing touchdown by highly coveted recruit Tory Carter for a 14-6 Generals lead.
On the next Generals drive, Carter scored on a 19-yard run to give the visitors a 20-6 lead.
Armour had another good return but the Highlanders fumbled on their offensive drive. That led to Carter’s 36-yard touchdown run.
With the FPCA offense back on the field, Crane tossed a lateral pass that seemed to go incomplete, but the officials said it was a completion that was fumbled and recovered by Georgia Christian. That set up yet another Carter touchdown.
With two minutes remaining in the first quarter, the Generals had a 34-6 lead.
Before the half, Carter scored another touchdown to make it 41-6 at intermission.
The Highlanders had another touchdown drive in the second half.
FPCA is 0-3 overall and will play at Pinewood Christian next Friday in Bellville.
Georgia Christian, 2-2 overall, has a bye week before travelling to play Munroe on Sept. 26 in Quincy, Florida.
