EDINBURGH — Fumble recoveries by Zach Smiley and Dakota Sneed resulted in two first quarter touchdowns, helping Edinburgh defeat Southside Homeschool 62-28 on Friday night.
Bobby Simpson completed 8 of 14 passes for 126 yards and three touchdowns for the Lancers (4-3). Kevin Johnson carried seven times for 50 yards.
Edinburgh coach Bill Unsworth said he was particularly proud of his defense.
“We told the kids on our scouting report that they had a tendency to turn the ball over a lot, so we got to the ball and forced fumbles,” Unsworth said. “The kids were really looking for the football. Their game is to run those two wingbacks and two tight ends to pitch and counter.
“They were bigger than we are, and we were a little bit worried. But the kids did pretty good,” he said.
