Cloudland took care of business on Friday night.
The ‘Landers jumped out to a 13-0 lead in the opening two minutes and never looked back in a 59-6 non-conference victory over North Greene at Orr Field.
With the win, Cloudland moves to 2-0.
After the season opening thriller, the ‘Landers made sure there would be no drama against the Huskies.
Hayden Houston took the opening offensive play 52 yards and then put CHS on the board on the next play with a one-yard run. After Cloudland recovered a NG fumble, Josh Blair raced 17 yards for a touchdown as CHS took a 13-0 lead two minutes into the game.
Another NG three-and-out set up a 65-yard touchdown pass from Malachi Benfield to Triston Lacy.
Connor Birchfield added a three-yard touchdown run while Jordan Coffey scored on a 48-yard run as CHS took a 32-0 advantage into the second.
Benfield hit Hunter Blair for a 32-yard score to open the second, and J. Blair put his second touchdown on the board with a 16-yard run.
After a NG touchdown, Jacob Singleton was on the receiving end of a 32-yard Benfield pass to push the CHS advantage to 52-6 at the half.
Dillon Johnson wrapped up the scoring in the second half with a 14-yard scamper to the endzone.
Benfield finished the game 6-of-12 passing for 186 yards and three touchdowns. Coffey had 89 yards on five carries, while Houston added 53 yards to the Cloudland total.
J. Blair had 33 yards on two carries – both of which were touchdowns.
