Chris Gibson scored four times Friday to help lead Peach County to a 47-19 win over Perry at home.
His five-yard run in the first quarter gave the Trojans the early lead – 7-0 with Mitchell Fineran’s kick added in.
Panther Jay Watkins scampered on an 80-yard touchdown run – his first of two scores – following. Tyler Knowles made it 7-all with his point after.
That was to be as close as Perry could get.
Gibson scored again on a three-yard run and with Fineran’s PAT made it 14-7. That’s where it stood after one.
He scored again in the second on a 35-yard run to make it 21-7 and then Fineran connected on a 29-yard field goal.
Quarterback Antonio Gilbert found Trevon Woolfok on a 12-yard pass for a score a short time later, and with the point after added in, put it at 28-7. That’s where it stood at the half.
The Panthers scored once in the third and once in the fourth to finish out. Watkins, on a 54-yard pass from Lane Rucker accounted for the first. By the time that had come, however, Peach County had added three more scores to its total. Gibson scored on a three-yard run for one. Gilbert raced in on a 20-yard run for the other and Fineran kicked a 45-yard field goal for the other.
Carven Malcolm for the Panthers finished the scoring off with a 12-yard run.
The Trojans out-gained Perry in total yards, 466-149. They improved to 2-1 while Perry fell to 1-1.
