Lightning was the only thing that could stop Burke County quarterback Donquell Green on Friday.
The Bears’ senior quarterback scored on his first two carries versus Thomson and later threw a touchdown pass to put Burke County up 21-0, before the game was stopped early in the second quarter, due to lightning.
The game will not be considered official and is unlikely to be rescheduled, according to The Augusta Chronicle.
Green scored on a 79-yard run on the first play of the game and also has 23-yard touchdown run. He had 235 yards of offense in the first quarter, the Chronicle reported.
–Dalton’s 27-game win streak versus Ringgold was snapped in a 33-27 triple overtime loss. The Catamounts had not lost to the Tigers since 1983. Each team blocked extra points in overtime to extend the game, before Ringgold forced a clinching turnover in the third overtime to secure the victory.
–Lithonia quarterback Rico Bruton threw touchdowns to Micah Stewart and Courtney Lott, and Frank Turner returned an interception in a 36-0 shutout of South Atlanta. It’s Lithonia’s first win over South Atlanta, which has lost eight straight games.
–West Laurens struggled offensively, managing just a 30-year field goal from Bill Leroy, in a 27-3 loss to Vidalia.
