The Holy Ground Baptist Academy football team wrapped up its second perfect regular-season run in a row by topping Hearts Academy in a 49-8 decision for Senior Night on Friday in Roopville.
The Stallions, who are riding a 22-game winning streak, enter the GICAA state playoffs as the No. 1 seed and will host Peachtree Academy in the opening round next Friday.
Junior Jackson Yates led the HG attack with 142 yards and three touchdowns on 11 carries, while Chris Organ added 71 yards and two touchdowns on 10 carries to go along with 68 receiving yards and a touchdown.
Jackson Yates started the scoring on Friday evening on a 27-yard run and Organ followed with the two-point conversion for the 8-0 advantage.
Isaiah Rice tacked on another six for HG on a six-yard run, but the conversion failed, leaving it 14-0. A short touchdown run by Organ, who also had the two-point conversion, stretched the score to 22-0.
Yates and Organ hooked up again to cap off an eight-play, 65-yard drive as senior guard Brock Wright served as a major force on the line of scrimmage.
Holy Ground kept its foot on the gas with another Yates touchdown on an 11-yard run and an Organ to Brock Wright two-point pass made it 35-0 at the half as an Ethan Butler interception halted Hearts Academy's final possession.
The second half was more of the same, as Organ rumbled in from 23 yards out before Hearts Academy finally got on the board with a 65-yard run. Yates capped off the scoring for the evening with a 54-yard run, as HG head coach Jamie Perry emptied his bench to let the younger players take the field.
Merick Rabun ended the Panthers' final drive with an interception in the end zone to seal the victory.
