MACON — Tattnall Square’s Jordan Brooks did a little bit of everything Friday, scoring  three touchdowns in three different ways while the defense did the rest.

The defending state champion Trojans did not allow Pinecrest Academy to cross midfield, rolling to a second straight 47-0 win in the second round of the GISA  Class AAA playoffs.

Brooks returned one of his two interceptions for a 37-yard score, threw a 34-yard touchdown pass to Kevin Lewis and capped his night with a 40-yard touchdown run to help the Trojans remain undefeated.

DeAndre Smelter added a 59-yard run midway through the second quarter and also intercepted two passes.

The Paladins, who dropped to 7-4-1, were unable to move the football with  their spread offense as Tattnall’s defensive quickness proved to be too much.

The highlight of the night for Pinecrest was a 28-yard pass play early in  the second quarter from Zach Wilson to Joe Neiner.

The Trojans’ win sets up a rematch with Deerfield Windsor, which Tattnall  beat 20-7 in the first game of the year.
