Record-Setting Night Lifts Summit to Big Win Over Shelbyville

summit v shelbyville


The Summit Spartans’ offense exploded for a record-setting night Friday at Shelbyville.

After scoring just 20 and 17 in their first two games, the Spartans (2-1) set a new Williamson County Schools points record in its 71-34 win over the Golden Eagles (2-1).

Summit led just 36-27 at halftime but didn’t slow down in the second half. The Spartans outscored Shelbyville 35-7 in the third and fourth quarters with five rushing touchdowns.

The running attack was the driving force all night for Summit. Three players ran for more than 100 yards, and as a team the Spartans 534 yards on 53 rushing attempts. They only had 10 passing yards.

Tai Carter led the way for SHS with 223 yards and three touchdowns on 17 rushes. He also scored on a 63-yard punt return in the second quarter.

Dalton Fisher (13 rushes, 151 yards and three TDs) and Tyler Palmer (10 rushes, 101 yards and one TD) also went over the century mark rushing for the Spartans.

Summit will look to keep its hot offense rolling in Week 4, as it heads back home for a contest against Lebanon. The Blue Devils are 0-2 on the season and have given up 60 points in two games while scoring just seven. They were shut out by McGavock on Friday.
