Unity Christian connected for a 63-yard touchdown pass on the first play of the second half, and that was the difference in Horizon Christian’s 7-0 loss Friday on the road.
Horizon couldn’t build off its offensive outburst in last week’s 42-0 victory over Hearts Academy, the team’s first win following an 0-10 season.
Warriors running back Travis Pittman rushed for 60 yards, but Horizon otherwise struggled to move the ball.
Horizon’s defense, meanwhile, shined. Michael Walker had nine solo tackles. James Kimbrough had two sacks, while Pittman and Chase Brown added sacks.
"Our offense struggled, but our defense played lights out," Horizon head coach Charles Wiggins said. "They were outstanding.
"[Unity] is supposed to be one of the top teams in the GICAA, and we hung with them the entire game."
