GCMS football stays unbeaten with win over Ridgeview/Lexington

LEXINGTON — Mitch McNutt and Nathan Garard each rushed for a pair of touchdowns, as GCMS cruised to a 47-0 win at Ridgeview/Lexington last Friday night. 
McNutt’s score on the opening drive extended the Falcons (7-0) streak to seven straight-games they have scored on their first possession. The two trips to the end zone put McNutt at a total of 17 rushing touchdowns on the season. 
Garard also threw for a touchdown, connecting with junior Ryland Holt on a 9-yard pass that Holt brought in with one hand. That makes six-consecutive games with a passing touchdown for Garard and a three-game streak with a receiving touchdown for Holt. 
The GCMS defense gave up only 68 yards of total offense to the Mustangs (3-4). Luke Freehill and Josh Bleich led the Falcons with six solo tackles each, while Josh Hardman paced the Ridgeview/Lexington attack with 11 carries for 25 yards.
