MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- Smiths Station ran over Robert E. Lee, finish Thursday night's game with 390 yards on the ground in a 45-12 rout at the Cramton Bowl.

J.J. Dancy led the Panthers with 148 yards rushing. He scored three touchdowns on runs of 72, 5 and 19 yards.

DeVante Marshall added 119 and Nigel Lawrence 75 on the ground for the No. 6 Panthers (6-0, 4-0 Class 6A Region 3).

Lawrence also scored a touchdown on a 63-yard run. Marshall scored from 5 yards out.

After a shutout victory over Sidney Lanier three weeks ago, Robert E. Lee fell to Central-Phenix City and Spain Park by a combined nine points.

Lee was feeling confident and ready to prove itself when Smiths Station walked in to the Cramton Bowl on Thursday night, but the Generals were quickly humbled.

Smiths Station took a four-touchdown lead at the half and coasted to the win.

After trailing 28-0 at the break, the Generals opened the second half with a spark. Jonah Garrison took the kickoff 80 yards to the Smiths Station 11 yard line. Four plays later, quarterback Anthony Hooks was able to sneak in for a score and get the Generals on the board.

Lee junior quarterback Anthony Hooks bounced back from a 6-for-13 first half to finish 16-for-29 passing for 139 yards with one interception. He added another touchdown late in the fourth quarter on a 17-yard scramble.

The Generals managed just 204 total yards compared to the Panthers' 465.

Smiths Station travels to face Opelika next week.
