“I’m just trying to score,” said Davis, who got 113 of his yards in the second half. “I have to give thanks to the line and the wide receivers. Everybody did a good job.”
Hughes outgained East Coweta 473-319 and benefitted from four Indian turnovers.
Davis’ touchdown runs in the second half, from 11 and 20 yards, allowed the Panthers to pull away.
The Panthers (7-1, 3-0 in 6-AAAAAA) survived two East Coweta scoring threats in the second half.
After Davis’ first touchdown, an 80-yard kickoff return by East Coweta’s Demarcus Godfrey gave the Indians (3-5, 2-1) the ball at the Hughes 18-yard line, but teammate Wylin Orr fumbled on the next play and Hughes recovered.
