Nance carries Lions to big win
Unity Christian quarterback John Nance amassed more than 400 yards of offense for the second week in a row as the Lions roared to a 52-17 win against Horizon Christian in their GICAA region opener Friday at Grizzard Park.
The freshman was 23 for 34 for 384 passing yards and six touchdowns, and had 46 yards on the ground for a total of 430 yards.
Eli Wells, who was one of nine different Unity (2-1, 1-0) receivers with catches, finished six catches for 132 yards and two touchdowns. Travis Williams had three receptions for 70 yards and a touchdown.
The Lions owned a 34-17 lead at halftime, and held the Warriors scoreless through the final two quarters to get the win. Nance was involved in all but one touchdown, throwing TD strikes to Levi Lodge, Williams, Caleb Thompson, Samuel Mumpower and Jayden Slaughter. Unity’s other score came on a 1-yard run from Thompson.
Unity will hit the road next Friday for a matchup against Peachtree Christian in Covington.
