On a night when Danville wore special purple and gold jerseys, the Admirals were sharp from the opening whistle on the way to a 42-2 win over Garrard County.
The Admirals were in purple and gold to honor the old Bate High School.
Danville (6-0) scored on the first possession and never looked back on the way to victory.
Don Harris then added two long runs to give the Admirals a 21-0 advantage after the first quarter.
The second quarter didn’t start any better for the Golden Lions (3-3) as a snap over the punter’s head set Danville up for another touchdown.
Garrard County finally sustained a drive that was aided by Danville penalties. Danville then picked up a holding penalty in the end zone just before halftime to give Garrard their only points on the night.
The Admirals tacked on touchdowns from Thornton and D’Mauriae VanCleave in the second half to set the final score.
Danville will host Tates Creek (4-1) next week. Garrard County has a week off before hosting Boyle County (5-1) on October 6.
– Don Harris suffered what appeared to be a minor ankle injury in the first half; he seemed to be trying to convince the trainers he could still play but was held out for the entire second half.
– Jaleel Warren, who has proven to be Danville’s most reliable receiver, missed the game with a shoulder injury.
– Christian Hill, who missed the Waggener game, was back for Danville
– Danville dominated from the opening whistle. Garrard County had no answer for Danville’s speed and could never get anything going offensively.
