Coming off of a bye week, GRC football looked to win their second in a row. A huge victory over Grant County put the Cardinals back to a winning record, and tonight the team took the field with another victory in their sights.

It didn’t take long for the offense to get going, with Nitavius Thomas scoring a touchdown to give the Cards the lead. From there on, they never looked back.

Two fumbles forced by the Cardinal defense, one of which was returned for a touchdown, set up the offense for success. GRC powered their way to a 21-0 lead after the first quarter.

In the second, Pearce Nisbet heated up, firing for two touchdowns. The defense played a huge role in the second quarter as well, securing a 34 point lead at halftime.

The second half was virtually the same story.

The defense continued to show up, allowing only one touchdown, and scoring another defensive touchdown in the form of Tre’Von Jones’ pick-six.

The rushing game for the Cardinals excelled against the Rebels’ defense. The offense continued to pour it on, with a final score of 59-7.

Dr. Oliver Lucas continues to push his players to new heights, and has his Cardinals at 4-2 on the year. GRC travels to Lexington for the second time this season next week, as they look to take down Lafayette in their first district game.
