Football: Mulligan, Warriors rush past Gilmer, 52-25

By AccessWDUN Staff

CLEVELAND, Ga. — Silas Mulligan rushed for a season-high 215 yards and two touchdowns to lead White County past Gilmer, 52-25, Friday night at Warrior Stadium. 

Mulligan's second touchdown, a 51-yard run, pushed the Warriors' lead to a 25-7 advantage in the second quarter. 

Zion McMullen, who finished with 93 yards on 11 carries, scored on a five-yard run to go up 32-7 at halftime. 

In the second half, Gilmer opened with a Brock Titus two-yard run. White County's Tripp Nix answered the score on a nine-yard pass to Colton Turner.

The Bobcats cut the Warriors' lead to 39-25 on back-to-back scores -- a Stonecipher 41-yard run, and a Seth Darling 20-yard pass to Stonecipher. That was the closest the Bobcats could get, as Darius Cannon ripped off an 85-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and a McMullen five-yard run. 

Nix was 8-of-15 for 89 yards, and Cannon hauled in five catches for 63 yards.  

White County will end the regular season at home against Region 7-3A champion, Cherokee Bluff.
