1 days 6 hours ago | | | Email

GREENWOOD — Call them soaring winners because Richard Winn Academy (9-0) played one of its closest games of this season against Greenwood Christian School (6-2), and still flew away with a 17-point win.“They’re a good football team” said Dan Dickerson, head football coach for Richard Winn Academy. “I think our conditioning helped us in the second half.”After a 30-point second half, the Eagles emerged victorious, 51-34.“Once we were up by two scores, we felt pretty good,” Dickerson said. “They would have to drive the full-length of the field to score on us, and that gets harder and harder to do later in games.”
