Stephenson leads Trojans to GNRC win over SE Raleigh

Anthony Stephenson rushes for 102 yards and two big TD runs in Garner 25-6 win at SE Raleigh to open their GNRC season. Donovan Evans opens the game with 94 yard TD return score to put the Bulldogs on their heels. Cody Carpenter hits DJ Harris (who snatches two interceptions) with 6 yard fade for 12-0 Trojan lead two series into the game. Stephenson bulls his way to two second half scores, mowing down SER defenders as the Trojans improve to 4-1 on the season. The Trojan defense holds their opponent to less than 100 yards rushing for the 5th consecutive game, 47,2ypg, a pace that will top the 2000 Trojan squad record of 61.7ypg allowed. Dalton Counts adds a pick off for a third takeaway. Garner improves to 18-3 all-time vs the crosstown “rivals” and 8-1 all-time in John Baker Stadium.
