Middle School Review: Gravelly Hill football, soccer win

Updated: October 21, 2019

The Gravelly Hill Grizzlies men’s soccer team had a thrilling, last minute win over A.L. Stanback last week.

Konner Johnson scored as the Grizzlies rallied to defeat the Bulldogs 3-2, coming back from a 2-0 deficit. It was Johnson’s second goal of the game. Gravelly leads the Orange-Person Athletic Conference Southern Division by two games with two games to play entering the final week of the regular season.

Carson Condon scored the opening two goals for the Grizzlies. Ben Miller earned the victory in net. On Tuesday, Gravelly Hill faces Northern Middle School. If the Grizzlies win, they advance to the OPAC Championship match on October 29.

Football: Gravelly Hill defeated McDougale Middle School 28-24 to earn its second win of the season on Thursday. Malachi Poole, Tyler Fields, Derek Yanko and Christian Moore all scored touchdowns for the Grizzlies.

Gravelly Hill ends its season on Wednesday with a road trip to Culbreth.
