Courtney Partlow returned an interception for a touchdown and later scored on a run to lead the Red Devils to a 26-14 first-round win over the visiting Jefferson Dragons on a rainy night in Georgia.
LCHS took a 12-0 lead, but Jefferson booted two field goals to cut the lead in half, 12-6. Partlow's run early in the fourth put the Devils ahead 18-6, and freshman Gavin Williams' 8-yard run capped the Devil scoring 26-6. The Dragons added a late TD against the LC substitutes.
Senior lineman Al Hawkes apparently suffered an MCL knee injury during the game. Al had worked hard since last season to recover from injuries to the other knee last year. Our best wishes to Al for a speedy recovery.
