MARIETTA, Ga. – Walker’s Gaines Lahue rushed for 300 yards and four touchdowns to lead the Wolverines past Fellowship Christian 25-20 last Friday night, Oct. 11.
The Paladins took an early lead on a 10-yard interception return by Jack Wise, but a long scoring run by Lahue pulled Walker within 7-6 at the half.
Two more scores by Lahue put the Wolverines ahead 18-7 before the Paladins’ Taylor Cookston recovered a blocked Walker punt in the end zone. After another Lahue TD, Travis Kinney scored the Paladins’ only offensive touchdown of the night, a 3-yard run with just over one minute to play.
Hunter Bryant passed for 169 yards for the Paladins, completing 15 of 25 attempts, but was intercepted twice. Fellowship was held to just 30 yards rushing.
Both teams are 1-1 in their 6-A sub-region and 4-2 overall. The Paladins are at home Friday against Mount Paran (2-0, 5-1), which shares the sub-region lead with Mount Pisgah.
