Nobody has been able to slow McBee down since a season-opening 42-12 loss to AAA Lakewood in August.

You can now add the Camden Military Academy to the Panthers’ list of victims.

Playing without their starting quarterback and center, the visiting Spartans were shut out by McBee, 46-0. The victory was the eighth in a row for Charlie Poole’s troops which will close the regular season with a game at Lamar on Friday.

For CMA, Will Rice and company fell to 3-4 on the season heading into Saturday’s finale at Rabun Gap.

With starting quarterback Raeshawn Breckenridge nursing an injured thumb on his right (throwing) hand, the Spartans turned to Romani Susewell at quarterback. He was taking the exchange from a new center which did not help matters for the guests.

"That hurt us because we are inexperienced there," Rice said. "That was tough."

Rice did not use injuries as an excuse as the hosts raced to a 19-0 lead after the first quarter. That advantage ballooned to 39-0 at halftime before MHS tacked on a score in the third quarter.

The Spartans’ boss said he knew how good McBee was after having watched the Panthers on film. But seeing them in person was even more daunting.

"They were actually more impressive than we first thought," Rice said of his impressions of the Panthers. "They’re solid. They have an excellent football team.

"They ran the ball well. They blocked well and they gang-tackled. They just have a complete football team."

One of the positive aspects of the night was that the Spartans did not suffer any further injuries as they seek to end the season on a winning note.

"They just took everything we do away from us," Rice said. "They are one of the best teams that we’ve played in a long time.

"I seem them making a very long run in the (class A) state playoffs."
