Hebron Christian senior Colten Gauthier has committed to the South Carolina Gamecocks.

ELBERTON — Hebron Christian’s football team posted a nice win Friday night at the Granite Bowl, defeating host Elbert County 23-7.

The Lions, who jumped out to a 17-0 halftime lead, gave new head coach Stan Luttrell his first win with the program. They also rebounded from a season-opening loss last week at North Cobb Christian.

Jonathan Burke made three field goals in the win.

Hebron got an early 7-0 lead on a 44-yard TD pass from Colten Gauthier to Jaiden Stowers. Burke converted a 37-yard field goal later in the first quarter for a 10-0 lead.

A 42-yard TD pass from Gauthier to Jack Luttrell pushed the halftime lead to 17-0.

Elbert cut the deficit to 17-7 early in the fourth quarter, but Burke made a pair of 34-yard field goals later in the quarter and the Hebron defense stood strong.
