GRAY — Sullivan South, the fourth-ranked team in the Associated Press Class 4A poll, rolled up almost 500 yards of offense Friday evening in a 42-14 rout of Daniel Boone.

Rebels running back Blake Christian accounted for four touchdowns and ended the night with 115 yards on 14 carries. He opened scoring in the first quarter with a 25-yard run and followed up with a TD in each quarter.

Rebels quarterback Dylan Wieger matched Christian on the ground by rambling for 116 yards on 20 rushes.

While the Rebels controlled both sides of the line of scrimmage and rolled up the statistics, they also totaled 14 penalties that went for 158 yards.

“We really shot ourselves in the foot with penalties tonight,” said South coach Sam Haynie. 

“I did feel we were the most physical and that we got after them on the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball. We overcame those penalties and that is what I am the most proud of about our team.”
