HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) - Douglas Freeman had not scored on Hermitage in their last three meetings. They did score this time, but not nearly enough as the top ranked Panthers rolled to a 55-21 win.
Hermitage QB Niko Johnson found Brian Brown for two first half TD passes. Johnson finished with 149 yards passing, 103 of them going to Brown.
But Freeman tied the score in the first quarter on a Kyle Farkas touchdown pass to Kevin Cabas. That was as close as the Rebels would get as Derrick Green carried 20 times for 142 yards and three scores in the win.
The #1 Panthers are now 4-0 while Freeman falls to 2-2.
