Elizabethton was unable to get anything going on Friday night.
The Cyclones dropped a hard-fought 21-0 decision to Greeneville in a crucial Region 1-A contest at Burley Stadium
“Tonight was about us having zero offense,” Elizabethton Head Coach Shawn Witten said. “We couldn’t establish the run game. We just couldn’t get anything going.”
Greeneville opened the game hot as Brady Quillen found Mason Laws for a 50-yard score two minutes into the game. EHS was forced to punt on the next drive, and Adjatay Dabbs scored on a 24-yard pass from Quillen to send Greeneville into the second quarter with a 14-0 advantage.
The Cyclone defense settled down and made Greeneville work for every inch as the second quarter was scoreless.
Elizabethton continued to battle but was unable to get anything going offensively in the second half.
After EHS had to punt on the opening drive of the third quarter, Greeneville went to work methodically and scored when Quillen broke free for a 21-yard score.
The Elizabethton defense came up big with a Mason Ball fumble recovery and a Dalton Mitchell interception.
However, EHS was unable to get onto the board in the closing stages.
Elizabethton was held to just 64 total offensive yards in the game.
Cade Russell tallied 34 yards for the Orange and Black.
Elizabethton is set to return to action next Friday against Daniel Boone in a game that has been moved to ETSU’s Greene Stadium.
