RED BOILING SPRINGS -- Friendship Christian remained perfect on the season taking care of Red Boiling Springs 49-0 Friday. The 7-0 Commanders went to work early scoring on their first six possessions en route to a 40-0 halftime advantage.
"Our goal tonight was to get a win and not get anyone else hurt," explained FCS head coach John McNeal.
McNeal’s Commanders accomplished both goals picking up seven first downs and totaling 379 yards of total offense.
Much of the first team offense and defense saw playing time limited in the first half as junior running back and leading rusher John Markham picked up 55 yards on one attempt for the opening touchdown before calling it a night.
Peyton Alsup continued to turn in impressive numbers on special teams returning the Bulldogs first punt 76 yards for the Commanders’ second score.
Junior QB Lee Maasen had five yards and a touchdown on his only carry while completing four passes for 121 yards and a touchdown.
Junior wide receiver Parker Teeter hauled in three passes for 88 yards -- his longest of 41 set up Maasen’s first quarter TD.
Backup quarterback Kyle Neal scored twice for the Commanders on runs of 19 and 40 yards while sophomore receiver Chris Hall caught a 21 yard pass for a touchdown.
On a historic note, senior Camille Cross booted a 20 yard field goal in the third quarter, marking the first ever female football player to make good on a field goal for the school.
Cross booted an extra point attempt last week while missing another and just missing a field goal wide left from about the same distance in the Monterey win.
Freshman back Dekolas Reeves had 77 yards on 15 carries and a touchdown while eighth graders Destin Manous and Jacob Hodges picked up 29 and seven yards each.
The Commander defense kept up their stingy ways giving up only 64 yards of offense against the winless Bulldogs.
Friendship is 4-0 in Region 4,1A tied with undefeated rival Trousdale County.
The Commanders stay in the region and travel to Smith County Oct. 17 to face the Tigers -- who are 3-4 on the year.
Gordonsville defeated Monterey 23-22 Friday.
