Rose wins Greenville showdown

When J.H. Rose took over possession for the final time on Friday night, it had a rare opportunity to drive down the field for a two-possession lead, but quarterback Copeland Spell simply needed to kneel down inside his team’s 20-yard line to complete a 41-34 victory over rival D.H. Conley.

Neither team held a lead of more than seven points in the latest close game in the series, which featured a win by each team last year.


Prior to the kneel down by Spell, who scored on a 59-yard run for the game’s first score and ended up passing for 226 yards and running for 155, a fourth-down pass intended for DHC running back Myles Taylor was knocked down in the end zone by Rose’s Josh Moore with 36 seconds remaining.
