The score was already 24-0 at the half when Sprayberry coach Billy Shackelford had an opportunity to send a message to his team.
"(During halftime) I told the guys...that I would learn more about their character in the next two quarters than I have maybe in the last four months," Sprayberry coach Billy Shackleford said. "Everybody battles when it's even, everybody battles when its close, but it takes a real champion - a guy with guts and grit to battle when you're down."
The Yellow Jackets (2-3, 1-1) played better, but it was too much East Paulding.
The Raiders (6-0, 3-0) remain undefeated, and coach John Reid's defense hasn't allowed a point since beating Douglas County 51-6 Sept. 9.
Kamani Thomas led the way running for 91 yards and three touchdowns.
East Paulding received the ball first, and Christian Browder charged down the sideline 81 yards, before being caught by Myles Atkins at the Yellow Jacket 14-yard line. The Sprayberry defense forced the Raiders to try a field goal on fourth and 8, but Miles Hemphill pushed the 29-yard kick wide right.
On their next drive, the Raiders put together a 10-play drive that ended with a Hemphill field goal, this time from 24 yards out.
When they got the ball back, East Paulding marched right back down into Yellow Jacket territory, and this time Mitchell Webb found Andrej Suttles for a 25-yard touchdown with 31 seconds left in the first quarter.
After the next Jacket three-and-out, East Paulding only needed one play to take advantage of an errant punt that started them at the Sprayberry 28-yard line. Thomas found a hole in the right side of the line and darted to the end zone for his first score of the night.
Thomas would again show his elusiveness, dodging several Yellow Jackets before punching it in again on second-and-goal from the 9-yard line with 3:13 left in the first half. The score would remain at 24-0 through the half.
The Yellow Jackets held the Raiders to just one more score, an acrobatic leap by Thomas over the goal line for a 1-yard touchdown with 7:39 left in the game.
