Greenville Lions get recovery time this week

GREENVILLE —   A bye this week will give the Greenville’s Lions extra time to get over their heartbreaking loss to Frisco Heritage.

  The Lions, who lost 56-49 in double overtime during Friday night’s home opener, will also get an extra week to prepare for their District 13-4A opener at home on Sept. 27 against the Royse City Bulldogs. Royse City also has a bye this week, as do all the other District 13-4A teams.

  Greenville battled back from two 22-point deficits to lead 42-36 after outscoring Heritage 28-0 in the third quarter. But Heritage rallied to send the game into overtime at 42-42, then matched Greenville’s touchdown and extra point in the first overtime. Heritage scored again on the first possession of the second overtime. Greenville’s bid to score again ended with successive losses on the final two plays.

  The Lions finished with a season-high 448 yards of total offense, nearly four times their total in their previous game, a 48-0 loss to The Colony. Greenville put two rushers over the 100-yard mark to finish with 331 yards rushing. Running back Tyler Matthews pounded out 148 yards on 22 carries, scoring on runs of 2 and 12 yards, plus returning a kickoff 98 yards for another touchdown. Quarterback Spencer   Gilbert II ran for 126 yards on 22 carries, including touchdown runs of 36, 3 and 7 yards. Gilbert was also 6-of-14 passing for 47 yards.

  Bayelei Doty ran for another 74 yards on 12 carries on inside reverses for the Lions.

  Treveon Heard was 4-of-9 passing for 70 yards for the Lions, including a 51-yard touchdown pass to   D’erren Wilson, who led the Lions with seven catches for 98 yards.

  Zarrien Brown (fumble recovery) and Dakota Sandman (interception) produced turnovers on defense for the Lions.

  Greenville Phoenix will host the undefeated Fannindel Falcons in six-man football at noon on Saturday and Greenville Christian School will celebrate homecoming at 2 p.m. on Saturday against Fulton Academy of Heath.

  Fannindel improved to 3-0 with a 69-24 victory on Saturday night over Greenville Christian School in a game that was delayed an hour and a half by an injury to a Fannindel player, who was flown by helicopter to a hospital.

  Quincy Cuba ran for three touchdowns, caught a touchdown pass, threw a TD pass and also earned homecoming king honors for the Falcons.

Jarvis Wilburn went 11-of-20 passing for the Falcons for 191 yards and three TDs.

  Stephen Lock led Fannindel’s rushers with 102 yards on six carries, while Cuba finished with 73 yards on seven carries.

  Joe Henderson scored for GCS on a 50-yard kickoff return and a 15-yard run.

  Tristan Wooten threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to Andy Henderson.
