A week ago, Donnie Kiefer said he knew his team could put together a more dominating performance.

He wasn’t wrong.

Green Sea Floyds (5-1) blasted Baptist Hill 47-0 on the road Friday. The game was supposed to be a battle of two 1A powers, the reigning 1A champion Trojans against a 1A opponent ranked No. 8 in state (GSF is ranked No. 3). It turned into a Green Sea Floyds clinic.

“I just think we did a better job fundamentally,” Kiefer said. “We had a good week of practice and we actually shored up some things that didn’t look too good last week [in a win over McBee]. We were a lot better as far as execution this week.”

Defensively, the Trojans were overpowering. They held Baptist Hill to negative rushing yards and under 100 yards of offense overall. 

“We sacked the quarterback probably between eight and 10 times and they’re a throwing team,” Kiefer said. “Some of those sacks were like for huge yardage, anywhere from 20 to 30 yards.”

GSF was equally dominant on the other side of the ball.

Quarterback Bubba Elliott rushed for three TDs and passed for another. Wideout Ethan Damron and running backs Jaquan Dixon and Anwain Graham all found the end zone.

“We ran the ball a lot better tonight than we did last week,” Kiefer said. 

GSF will host Timmonsville next week. After Friday’s win, the team’s confidence is high.

“Baptist Hill is normally one of the players in 1A football,” Kiefer said. “They’re usually in the hunt. So to be able to come down here and play well feels a lot better than last week. Great team effort.”
