Friday night the Anderson County Mavericks beat the Clinton Dragons 49-10 in Clinton for their ninth straight win in the series and their 18th in the last 19 meetings between the two teams.
AC (4-0) was led by quarterback Stanton Martin, who completed 15-of-19 passes for 356 yards and four touchdowns, and ran for another 100 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Two of his scoring strikes went to Michael Carroll, who caught four passes for 162 yards, and the other two went to Dalton Wilson. Marquise Gallaher was a beast on both sides of the ball for the Mavericks, scoring a rushing touchdown and accounting for three and a half tackles for loss.
Clinton’s defense–which entered the game having allowed only 8 points through their first two games–forced five AC turnovers but simply could not capitalize on the opportunities. Isaiah Washington had 76 yards rushing and scored Clinton’s only touchdown on a pass from Luke Harrison. Cameron Washington was also productive carrying the ball, gaining 77 yards on 14 carries. Trevon Hill recorded two and a half sacks for the Dragons.
The two teams combined for 29 penalties for almost 300 yards.
Clinton fell to 2-1 with the loss, the first in Coach Randy McKamey’s brief three-game tenure.
