KINGSPORT — A week after tying a school record for touchdown passes in a single game, Sullivan South’s quarterback did one better on Friday night.
Dylan Wieger threw six touchdown passes to break South’s record for TD tosses in a game, and the Rebels cruised to a 41-14 victory over Johnson County in Three Rivers Conference play.
Wieger threw five TD passes against Sullivan North last week to tie the mark. He completed 13 of 15 pass attempts for 239 yards against the Longhorns on Friday, hitting Evan Headrick with four scoring strikes.
Dalton Johnson and Christian Comsa also had TD catches for South, and Wieger ran for 66 yards on six carries.
Johnson County made things interesting by scoring a touchdown with four seconds left in the first half to close within 21-7 at the break.
Warren Kerley’s 2-yard scoring run was the first points South had allowed all season to a conference opponent.
Patrick South had a remarkable night for the Longhorns, rushing for 164 yards on 30 carries with a touchdown. Johnson County rolled up 258 yards on the ground, but South still managed to outgain the Longhorns 382-295.
