The air was hot and humid. Cars jammed the parking lot and areas around Royal Stadium. Football season began Friday night as the Royals looked to win their third straight against longtime rival Hawkinsville.

Jharmir Marshall caught a touchdown pass.

Less than a minute in, Dominic Sasser connected with Bryce Bailey on a 52-yard catch and run. The PAT was good, and BC led 7-0. After a three and out from Hawkinsville, Willie Chambers blocked the ensuing punt. Working from the Red Devil 22, Sasser connected with Marcus Brown on a 23-yard touchdown. It was 14-0 Royals with less than two minutes played.

The Devils appeared poised to score following a 60-yard run to the BC 15. However, the snap was bad on a 29-yard field goal attempt. Arkenzio Hayes recovered it at the BC 39. He would eventually score from eight yards out.

Bleckley struck again with 2:04 left in the first when Bailey connected with Jhamir Marshall from 15 yards out. The rout was on, it was 28-0 Royals. In the second, Hawkinsville again appeared poised to score, reaching the Royal 15. The threat ended when Willie Harris recovered a fumble on the 21. Set up by a 44-yard Javon Butler run, Hayes got his second touchdown of the game with 7:30 left.

Bryce Bailey ran alongside Ty Williams' during his dash to the endzone.

Ty Williams got in on the scoring late in the half, dashing 63 yards. Bleckley took a 42-0 lead into the dressing room at halftime. In the fourth, Hawkinsville reached the BC 30 with about nine minutes left. However, Dytwon Ates intercepted a pass near the endzone, returning it to the 27. Following a penalty, the ball was moved to the 44.
