After a rough home loss to Oxford last week, the Grenada Chargers took to the road Friday to face the struggling Kosciusko Whippets.
The Chargers broke open a close game in the second period and cruised to a 45-13 road win.
With the victory, Grenada improves to 2-2 on the season. Kosciusko drops to 0-4.
“It was a game that we needed to win,” Coach Ashley Kuhn said. “Our guys came out and took care of business.”
Defensively, GHS held Kosciusko to 127 total yards, 90 of those came against the junior varsity unit.
“We played pretty much everyone that made the trip,” Kuhn said. “It is always good to get other players meaningful snaps.”
The Whippets managed a first down on their initial possession of the game before punting to Grenada.
They responded with a seven play, 81-yard drive. Abbott Hankins connected with Christian Wortham on a 37-yard scoring strike for the game’s first points. Remington Smith kicked the extra point to make it 7-0 with 5:08 left in the opening period.
Grenada made it 14-0 with an eight play, 74-yard drive. Demarquese Gibson had a 25-yard run in the drive. Hankins connected with Emmanuel Forbes on a 19-yard pass to get the ball to the KHS 4. Gibson scored on the next play, and Smith added the extra point to make it 14-0 with 10:03 left in the half.
