On Tuesday the Georgia High School Association Division 1, Area 8 tournament continued featuring a night cap matchup between the Therrell Panthers and the Druid Hills Red Devils as they looked to advance to the final four round of the tournament. After forcing the Red Devils into a three and out their opening drive, the Panthers would strike quickly on the first play of the ensuing possession as quarterback back, Emoni Scott would connect with Janethia Kendall for the first touchdown of the game.

With an early 7-0 lead and back on defense, the Panthers would once again make their presence felt coming up with an interception that would lead to Scott throwing her second touchdown of the night as she connected with SeMiya Strozier and Therrell would go on to take a 14-0 lead. The Panthers’ defense would once again return to the field on the ensuing Druid Hills possession and would come up with another key turnover as Keniya Butler would intercept the Red Devils’ quarterback pass and return it for a touchdown.

Up 20-0, the Panthers kept the pressure on as Scott and Strozier would connect once again for a touchdown late in the second quarter, helping Therrell take a 27-0 lead at half time. And while the third quarter would be a scoreless period, the Panthers would strike again in the fourth quarter as Scott would throw her fourth touchdown of the night to Akeelah Walton, as Therrell would go on to pcik up the 33-0 win.

“They came out strong and they pretty much stayed on it all night long,” Therrell head coach, Matt Hazel said following Tuesday’s win, praising his players for not slowing down after getting off to a quick start. “Tonight, they were clicking on all cylinders, offense, defense, putting their foot on the gas all night,” Hazel added about the Panthers performance. And as for the four touchdown night by Scott, “she’s electric, hands down,” Hazel said of the Therrell signal caller. Tuesday’s win marks the fourth consecutive game in which the Panthers held their opponent scoreless.
