Glencoe made it 21-8 at 9:18 of the third quarter on Stone’s three-yard scoring run, but the Bulldogs kept within striking distance less then a minute later on Keith Jackson’s 64-yartd touchdown catch from Ryan Brown.

That was as close as Susan Moore would get, as the Yellow Jackets closed out the game with three straight scores – the first on Stone’s 17-yard touchdown pass to Andrew Wills, the second on Stone’s 51-yard run and the third on Ozmint’s 82-yard interception return.

Stone finished with 155 rushing yards on 20 carries, while Thomas Ozmint ran 14 times for 90 yards.
