starters would put one more score on the board as Bryan’s fi­nal pass of the night went for a 14-yard touch­down to Noah Boaz with 4:28 left in the third quar­ter. The back-ups would ac­count for the fi­nal points of the night on a 14-yard run by fresh­man quar­ter­back Nick Han­son with 2:28 to play.

South­east’s fi­nal TD came on a 12-yard pass from John­son to Os­car Gon­za­lez late in the third quar­ter with Her­itage’s No. 2’s in the game on de­fense.

Grant fin­ished with

123 yards on just three catches, while Bryan paced the run­ning game with 44 yards on five car­ries. John­son was 19-of-32 for 204 yards for the Raiders, while Lan­don Ea­ton had seven catches for 87 yards. How­ever, South­east fin­ished with just two net yards on the ground on 25 at­tempts.

“In­di­vid­u­ally there are a lot of guys that are de­vel­op­ing,” Slaugh­ter said. “Blake just con­tin­ues to get bet­ter and the guys around him just con­tinue to get bet­ter. The of­fen­sive line is im­prov­ing and Coach (Chris) Hight is do­ing a tremen­dous job with our spe­cial teams. We take a lot of pride in our spe­cial teams and

they did a heck of a job tonight.”

With the win, Her­itage moved to 2-0 in Re­gion 6-AAAA and im­proved to 6-0 for the first time in school his­tory. Still, with a big game loom­ing at North­west Whit­field next Fri­day, Slaugh­ter said his team still has a lot to im­prove on as they get deeper into the re­gion slate.

“We had some penal­ties and we had some busts de­fen­sively,” Slaugh­ter said. “We are get­ting bet­ter, but we’ve got some good teams com­ing up in the next few weeks and we can’t have things like that if we want to com­pete for a re­gion cham­pi­onship.”
