Metter stuns defending state champ ECI
Metter got its football season off to a dramatic start, stunning defending Class A state champion Emanuel County Institute by a count of 21-20 in the second game of Saturday’s Erk Russell Classic at Paulson Stadium. A blowout loser in last season’s inaugural Erk Russell Classic game, the Tigers showed some changed stripes. Metter took an early lead, never trailed, then held off an ECI rally in the closing minutes.
