NARROWS –– Galax used a big second quarter to jump out to a 27-0 halftime lead and locked up the No. 3 seed in the Region C Division 1 playoffs Friday with a 41-0 defeat of Narrows at Ragsdale Field.
The Maroon Tide improved to 7-3 overall, 3-1 in the Mountain Empire District and earned a share of the MED championship thanks to Grayson County’s upset win over Fort Chiswell.
Terrance Mazon slung three touchdown passes on the night, all three coming in a 20-point second-quarter explosion.
The Maroon Tide led 7-0 on Jacob Fisher’s 4-yard scoring run when Mazon went to work in the second. Juan Ruiz grabbed a 5-yard scoring toss and Jerad Brown hauled in a pair of TD passes, including a 71-yarder that put the Maroon Tide ahead 20-0.
Quarterback Austin Pack took over in the second half and hooked up with Deion George on a 51-yard scoring throw, and Brown capped the scoring in the fourth quarter with a 51-yard run, his third TD of the evening.
Galax racked up 426 yards of total offense, led by Mazon’s 6-for-9, 127-yard night.
Fisher led a stout rushing attack with 91 yards on seven carries. Jordan Vaughan got back into the action after several weeks off healing a broken foot and carried nine times for 52 yards. Brown added 51 yards on the one scoring run.
Defensively, the Maroon Tide all but shut the Green Wave down. Led by Donte Peoples, who had two interceptions and a fumble recovery, Galax limited Narrows to 81 total yards, including 48 rushing yards on 36 attempts.
The Maroon Tide will host Rural Retreat in the opening round of the Region C Division 1 playoffs Friday, with the winner taking on No. 2 Bath County.
