Taz Richardson grabbed four passes for 153 yards and two touchdowns on a wet and rainy night to power Mauldin past Greer in the JL Mann Jamboree.  Dre Massey hit Richardson early in the 1st quarter to give the Mavs a 7-0 lead.  Greer responed with two scores, including a special teams TD to take a 14-7 lead.  Massey again connected with Richardson for a 78 yard bomb to tie the game.  The score remained 14-14 well into the 2nd quarter, when Mauldin mounted a drive from its own 17 yard line behind the power running of Beau Craft and Tyler Reimer.  Massey capped the drive with an 8-yard TD run.  Trailing 21-14, Greer mounted a scoring drive of its own but Ozell Lloyd and Daveion Jackson blew up the Yellow Jackets 2-pt conversion attempt and preserved a 21-20 victory for Mauldin!

The Mavs head to Eastside Tuesday for a scrimmage and will host the Mauldin Jamboree on August 23rd.  Go Mavs!
