Hite, with the Demons on their own 48-yard line near the midway point of the first quarter, got the call on first down. A run up the middle: Plus three. He also got the call on the second play: Run up the middle – minus two this time. Third play. Hite again. This time, however, he broke off the left side and rambled for a 61-yard score.
Matt Monday punched through the point after and Warner Robins was off and running en route to a 34-6 win over Evans.
The Knights at that point still showed life. They picked up a couple of first downs – their third and fourth of the ballgame – but then had to punt.
The Demons took it on their own 28 and went the distance. Hite again provided the bulk of the carries – five of the nine. One belonged to Deanthony Mack and the others to Jaquan Burns. His came once Warner Robins got to the 11. He finally finished the drive off from the 1. Monday made it 14-0. By then the game was about three minutes into the second.
Rod Harris, who had a standout night on the defense as well as on special teams, scooped and scored from about the 40 on a fumble on the kickoff following that. Monday made it 21-0. Harris, later in the quarter – after Monday had kicked a 43-yard field goal to make it 24-0 - intercepted a ball in the endzone to end the Knights’ attempt to get back in it.
With just inside two minutes before the half, Caden Johnston hit a wide-open Mack for a 41-yard score. Monday then made it 31-0, which is where it stood at the half.
Both teams, with a running clock, punted to start the third. Eventually Evans quarterback Chandler Shoemaker – in the endzone even – hit Damian Foreman with a pass that went 97 yards and the score. The point after failed.
Monday then made it the final with a 38-yard field goal.
