Cason Banks took the opening kickoff back 82-yards Friday night, and the Vidalia Indians never looked back as they ran past the Brantley County Blue Herons 46-6. The Homecoming win was the 6th of the year for Jason Cameron’s Indians, moving them to 6-1 overall and 2-1 in Region 3AA play. During halftime of the game VHS crowned a new Homecoming Queen, Tamira Spikes. Banks’ touchdown was the first of five first-half scores giving the Indians a 32-6 lead at the intermission. During the halftime festivities, Senior Tamira Spikes was crowned Homecoming Queen. During the first-half scoring barrage, Jackson Berry threw for two touchdowns, the first coming with two seconds to go in the opening quarter when he hit Antonio Barron for a 20-yard score to make the score 14-0. Berry’s second touchdown pass of the night came with ten seconds to go in the half when he hooked up with freshman D.J. Wallace to make the score 32-6. The TD was Wallace’s second of the night and his career, with the first coming just 46 seconds earlier on a 34-yard pass from Barron.
Barron finished the night 3 for 4 with one touchdown, while Berry ended with two touchdowns on a 7 for 9 night and 119 yards. Barron also finished with 113 yards on the ground and two scores. Vidalia’s other touchdown came from senior Darrell Brown on a 3-yard run with 11:07 to go in the game. The Indians finished the night with 391-yards of offense, including 209 yards through the air and 182 yards rushing, while holding the Blue Herons to just 145 yards of total offense. Next for the Indians will be a trip to Baxley, where they will face off with Region leading Appling County on Friday night beginning at 7:30 p.m.
