WINNSBORO — The passing game had an off night and the team uncharacteristically had some foolish penalties, but little of that showed up on the scoreboard for the Griffins Friday night versus the Columbia Capitals. The defense pitched a shutout and a mix of reverses and power running plays carried FCHS to a 50-0 victory. The Griffins now are 6-0 and have the fifth longest winning streak in school history. Larry G. Bell got the scoring started in the first quarter with a one-yard run and Stanley McManus added a two-yard run for the two-point conversion. The touchdown was one of two on the night for Bell.

Second quarter touchdown runs came from DeAndre Belton and Joseph Young.

Young added another score in the third quarter on a run from the wildcat formation.

FCHS closed out the scoring by breaking a long run up the middle for a score where the running back, number 32, was pretty much untouched on his way to the end zone. For a full recap, see Tuesday’s edition of The Herald Independent.
