The Godby Cougars sent a clear reminder to everyone in attendance at Gene Cox Stadium why they were the two-time defending city champs on Friday night. With a 48-7 drubbing of rival Leon, the Cougar offensive unit lead by RB P.J. Simmons and QB Darius Bradwell, scored on nearly every possession in the first half. With 8:09 left in the second quarter Leon found themselves staring at a 34-0 deficit. Bradwell finished the night with 130 yards passing and 117 yards on the ground while Simmons added another 110 yards rushing.
Equally impressive was the Godby defense, who easily handled Leon standout ATH D’Anfernee McGriff and kept the Lions to a single touchdown. The Cougars d-line made a home in Leon’s backfield while the rest of the unit caused a series of turnovers and 3-and-outs for the Lions, which was highlighted by a 30 yard fumble return for a score by DB Jacoby Wood.
Next week Leon will host Crestview while Godby will have the week off before a big district game at Wakulla.
