WINTHROP — The Lisbon football team suffered for the past two weeks missing key players due to ineligibility.

Their returned on Friday night against Winthrop proved a huge advantage.

The Greyhounds, at full strength, gained 434 offensive yards, all on the ground, to defeat the Ramblers 48-0 in a Campbell Conference Class C game at Maxwell Field.

Winthrop head coach Joel Stoneton said the team was unable to fully prepare for the contest, not knowing who was going to line up for the Greyhounds.

“They had six guys who were coming back, but we didn’t know what they were capable of,” Stoneton said. “Not knowing that, great game plan, they just physically blew us over just like Traip last week, and they wanted it more. That’s it.

“We scouted and were looking at the kids out last week, looking at the possible scenarios. But you can’t really get a feel of what a kid can really do and you can’t replicate that with the JV look offense. They just outplayed us, that’s the bottom line.”

Greyhounds head coach Dick Mynahan said because of the number of missing players, the team ran a different offensive package than the Power I rushing attack they use Friday night.

“We went Pole Cat (offensively) and they really didn’t get a chance to see or prepare for us, or even know what we had,” Mynahan said. “I think that was pretty tough for them, to not get a good read on us.”

Quincy Thompson led Lisbon with 113 yards rushing on five carries. He scored three touchdowns, all in the first half.

“It feels good to have everyone back,” Thompson said. “For everyone to execute. It feels good to get our first win.”

Joining in with the offensive output was fellow running back Jordan Torres, who rushed for 106 yards on four carries and scored two touchdowns.

The Greyhounds needed just 50 seconds for the first touchdown of the game, capping a 54-yard drive with a 30-yard touchdown run by Thompson. The extra point by Zach Stevens gave Lisbon the 7-0 lead. Thompson struck again on the next drive, this time on a 23-yard rush, to bring the score to 13-0.

Lisbon set itself up nicely on the next drive, as Jordan Glover blocked a Winthrop punt to give the Greyhounds the ball at the Winthrop 22. Two plays later, Torres scored from 11-yards out on a sweep. Thompson ran in the two-point conversion to make it 21-0.

The Greyhounds scored on their first two plays of the second quarter. Thompson scored his third touchdown on a 38-yard run to make it 28-0 and Torres scored from 65-yards out.

CJ Adams scored on a 3-yard run to make it 42-0 at the half. The Greyhounds outgained the Ramblers 301-80 in offensive yards in the first half.

Running back Henry Adams scored on the game’s final touchdown on a 63-yard run.

Winthrop has now been outscored 83-0 in the past two games, having lost 35-0 to Traip Academy a week ago.

“We’re just trying to find a niche, and we can’t seem to find it,” Stoneton said.
