DOUBLE SPRINGS — Winston County’s Austin Owens was unstoppable against Sumiton Christian on Thursday night at Malcolm Blake Stadium in Double Springs.

The junior running back had four touchdowns — all on plays more than 30 yards — as the Yellow Jackets built a big lead early on their way to a 48-7 victory.

Owens touchdown runs covered 43, 34, 35 and 86 yards.

Winston County struck first with a 1-yard touchdown by Ryker Morgan at the 8:24 mark of the opening quarter. The two-point conversion gave the Jackets an 8-0 lead.

From there, Owens took over. He scored on a 43-yard run and added a two-point conversion run with 16 seconds left in the opening quarter. He struck twice in the second quarter, scoring on runs of 34 and 34 yards. Morgan added a 2-point conversion on the second score for a 30-0 halftime lead.

Winston County(3-6, 1-5) scored touchdowns in both the third and fourth quarters.

Owens went 80 yards for his fourth touchdown of the night with 8:03 left in the third quarter. Isic Clark added a nine-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter that pushed Winston County’s lead to 46-0.

Sumiton Christian (1-8, 0-6) broke through with 5:39 left in the game on a Jeremy Brown six-yard touchdown run.

Both teams close out the season next week. Winston County hosts rival Lynn while Sumiton Christian makes the trip to Victory Christian.

The 2A No. 10 Bulldogs dominated the Hornets on Thursday night.

Rice registered three touchdown runs (15, 25 and 58 yards), tossed two touchdown passes (24 and 35 yards) and returned a kickoff 90 yards for another score in the road contest. Luke Chambers and Justin Mather each had one touchdown reception.

Caleb Crider also added a 1-yard touchdown scamper in the second half.
