The Rams began second half with a leaping interception by Terray Bryant on the first play from scrimmage. From there, Arabia Mountain capitalized on the opportunity with an electrifying run by Brandon Snowball. The halfback ducked under and dodged by would-be tacklers before cruising to the end zone for 15-yard touchdown. Another successful 2-point conversion pushed the lead to 30-0. White concluded the third quarter with two more touchdowns to put an exclamation mark on the contest. He now has seven rushing scores for the season.
“It was a hard-fought game. I got the first touchdown to set us off. I give all the credit to my offensive line. We kept the intensity up and got the job done,” said White. “After we lost to East Coweta [20-14, Sept. 23], we wanted to go even harder the next game. Our goal was to go undefeated. We wanted to come out here and let everyone know we still have that drive for state. We put 44. We average 33.5 points per game. Our defense is tough. We just have to keep going.”
Miller Grove’s offense sputtered all evening.
The Wolverines had three turnovers and a punt blocked in the loss. Arabia Mountain converted each turnover into points. Miller Grove crossed midfield twice and didn’t reach the red zone until 2:07 left in the third quarter.
Despite their closeness in proximity, this was only the third meeting between the two DeKalb County schools. Arabia Mountain has now won two in a row in this series.
With this latest triumph, Arabia Mountain improves to 5-1 overall and 1-0 in the league. The Rams next face Columbia on Saturday, Oct. 15.
Miller Grove’s setback drops its record to 2-4 and 0-1 in the region. The Wolverines are in the midst of a bad run with a four-game losing streak. Next week, Miller Grove takes on Southwest DeKalb.
