MACON — Top-ranked Unity took control with a dominating first half to stay unbeaten.
Defensive linemen Tyler Crowl, Christian Whicker and Anthony Vasquez made life miserable for the hosts. Vasquez had six tackles and four sacks, Crowl had six tackles and two sacks and Whicker had four tackles.
“Going into the season, we figured they would be one of our strengths,” Unity coach Scott Hamilton said. “The front-three guys have played really hard and have improved. They were our meal ticket on defense.”
Connor Grace rushed for 251 yards and three touchdowns and Justin Deters added 133 yards rushing and four touchdowns for the Rockets, who gained 484 yards on the ground.
Mitchell Snodgrass caught a 26-yard touchdown pass.
“We got off to a good start,” Hamilton said, “and we were pretty balanced again.”
