MARIETTA, Ga. – Penny Hart had a huge game on both offense and defense to lead King’s Ridge to a 41-27 victory last Friday night, Oct. 18, at Walker.

Hart caught six passes for 174 yards and a touchdown and intercepted three passes, returning two for TDs. Hart gave the Tigers an early 7-0 lead with an 86-yard touchdown catch from Henry Jones, who passed for 210 yards.

Connor Henderson carried 18 times for 82 yards and three touchdowns for King’s Ridge, including scoring runs of 8 and 13 yards in the first half.

The Tigers limited the Wolverines to 34 yards in the first half to lead 27-0, holding Walker running back Gaines Lahue to minus 9 yards one week after he ran for 299 yards and four touchdowns against Fellowship Christian.

Walker closed within 34-21 before the second of Hart’s two interception returns for touchdowns put the game out of reach.

King’s Ridge is 1-2 in its 6-A sub-region, 3-4 overall. Walker is 1-2 and 4-3. The Tigers play Friday night at Fellowship Christian (1-2, 4-3), which fell behind early against region co-leader Mount Paran Christian (3-0, 6-1) and lost 52-21 at home last Friday night.
