Hunter Reece had a career night for East Limestone Friday as the Indians grabbed their sixth straight victory of the year with a 66-28 win over Lawrence County.

The senior kick returner scored three touchdowns in the first half on a 90-yard punt return, a 21-yard run from scrimmage and a 78-yard kickoff return to total 240 yards of offense. He almost had another punt return touchdown, but it was called back because of a penalty.
