Johnson added 119 yards on the ground and another score for Richmond County.

Daily Whitten and Ross Tillman combined for 252 yards receiving and three scores. Dwayne Ratliffle also hauled in a scoring pass. Bama Bonds added a rushing touchdown in the win.

“We set weekly goals and we surpassed our goal this week,” said Speed coach Dedrick Petty. “We had a lot of back-ups step up today and (they) played lights out. I’m proud of my team but we are far from satisfied. Its a new week and we have business to handle.”
