The Greer Yellow Jackets fell to Travelers Rest 21-14 on Friday night, dropping their record to 1-6 overall.
Greer enjoyed a very promising start, getting out to an early 7-0 lead in the first quarter over a TR team that entered with a 5-1 record.
However, the Yellow Jackets were unable to score again until the fourth quarter. Meanwhile, Travelers Rest put up 21 unanswered points.
Quarterback Hollis Crosby scored on a rushing touchdown for the Yellow Jackets, to cut the deficit to 21-14 in the fourth quarter but were unable to get any closer.
When asked how he felt going into the game, outside linebacker Bryson Adams said, “I feel like Hollis was confident, like he knew what he had to do.” Adams kept that feeling throughout the game, stating “It felt good [playing the game].”
Adams expressed that the team had something to prove in this game, needing “to get the monkey off [their] backs.”
It’s been a difficult year for Greer, but the team is taking solace in their steady improvement after playing so well against one of the top teams in the region.
The loss, however, makes next week’s matchup with Berea even more important as the two battle for one of the final playoff spots in Region 4A-2.
