Carver responded with a seven-play drive and tied the score behind a sneak from Holden. Gregory Payton picked up 39 of the Panthers’ 58 yards. The Panthers went ahead 14-7 with 5:42 left in the second quarter when Charlie Patrick scored on a 19-yard run. The 66-yard drive included two passes from Holden to Joseph Mosley for 32 yards. The second completion put Carver at the Grady 19, and Patrick scored on the next play.
Holden and Patrick each scored fourth-quarter touchdowns to seal the victory.
“Once we got out here and realized what was at stake, the kids found the energy they needed,” Myles said.
Grady (7-2 overall, 4-1 6B-AAAA) had won seven in a row after a 7-6 loss to Decatur in the season opener. The Grey Knights will play Columbia in the 6-AAAA region third-place game next week.
