Glynn Academy controlled its destiny heading into Friday’s game at Bradwell Institute in Hinesville. A win secured the Region 2-6A title and a No. 1 seed for the playoffs. A loss meant a probable convoluted tiebreaker system determined who would be the champ.
The Red Terrors didn’t leave their playoff fate to chance. Glynn jumped out early and separated from the Tigers in the second half to win 42-21.
Glynn struck first in the first quarter with Sam Wagner capping a drive with a 6-yard touchdown run to make it 7-0 Terrors.
Bradwell rode South Carolina commit Kevin Harris to a touchdown early in the second quarter to tie the game at 7-7. That would be the last time that Glynn didn’t have the lead.
Wagner would connect with TJ Lewis for a 39-yard touchdown pass to make it 14-7 with 3:07 to play in the first half. Glynn would get the ball back and race down the field, covering 59 yards in five plays with Wagner running in for his second touchdown of the game to make it 21-7 at the half.
The Terrors expanded their lead in the third quarter with Lewis scoring from 1-yard out and Quantavious Bostic running in from 15 yards out to make it 35-7.
Bradwell would try to mount a comeback in the fourth quarter, putting their second touchdown on the board with 9:02 to play to cut the lead to 35-14. Caden Hutchinson would run in Glynn’s final touchdown to make it 42-14. Bradwell would add another score before the end of the game for the final total.
The win moves Glynn to 7-3 overall and 4-0 in the region. It’s also the third-straight region title for the Terrors, who will host the No. 4 seed out of Region 3 next week at Glynn County Stadium in the first round of the Class 6A playoffs.
