Cyclones roll past Grainger on the road



Elizabethton kept right on track on Friday night.

The Cyclones scored early and often take a 56-6 victory over Grainger County on Friday night on the road.

With the win, Elizabethton improves to 5-0 on the season and 2-0 in Region 1-4A play.

The Cyclones wasted no time get things started. Bryson Rollins scored on a 29-yard touchdown in the opening minutes, and Austin Outland quickly added 33-yard touchdown to give EHS a 14-0 advantage.

Carter Everett found Zach Hartley for a 26-yard touchdown, and the Jaxton Holly extra point gave EHS a comfortable 21-0 lead. The Cyclones, however, weren’t done yet in the first quarter as Outland added another score on a 28-yard touchdown. That gave EHS a 28-0 lead after 12 minutes of play.

Grainger went on a methodical drive in the second quarter. The Grizzlies held the ball for over 10 minutes before breaking into the endzone. Elizabethton answered right before half as Rollins ran in from eight-yards out to give the Cyclones a 35-6 lead at the half.

In the third quarter, Cory Russell scored two touchdowns – one on a 21-yard run and then a 60-yard touchdown catch on a Carter pass – to push the lead to 49-6.

Gavin Lowe capped the scoring in the fourth with an eight-yard touchdown run.

Outland finished with 80 yards rushing on three carries, while Rollins had 48 yards on six carries. Everett was 11-of-19 passion for 212 yards.

Evan Perkins and Russell tallied 72 yards receiving apiece.

The Cyclones return to action next Saturday as they welcome Tennessee High to Elizabethton.

Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
