Havelock cruises past Jones Senior

Published: Friday, September 6, 2013 at 09:35 PM.

Havelock quarterback Travis Sabdo threw for two touchdowns, 59 yards to Matthew Boykin and 41 yards to Kyran Bowman, sandwiched around a Boykin had a 6-yard rushing touchdown to lead 28-0 in the first quarter. Sabdo was 4 of 6 passing for 117 yards and for the third straight game as a starter, did not have an interception.

Jones Senior got a 32-yard pass play from Glen White to Nihkee Jones, and converted on a fourth-and-1 play to move into Havelock territory midway through the first quarter, but a penalty pushed the Trojans (0-3) back and they weren’t able to recover.

“We showed some flashes of brilliance, but they the wheels would come off,” Davis said. “That’s going to happen when you’re playing a bunch of freshmen and sophomores. For a 1A school, we probably play the toughest schedule in the state. We’ve got our work cut out for us, but this is great experience and we hope it pays off in October.”

Taylor Woods had a 30-yard touchdown run for the Rams in the second, and Derrell Scott added TD runs of 18 and 5 yards as the Rams led 49-0. Scott totaled 176 yards on just 10 carries.

“It was great, but I have to give the credit to my offensive line,” said Scott, who had a pair of 58-yard runs that did not go for touchdowns. “If they didn’t block for me, I wouldn’t be able to do anything. They really opened up some holes for me.”

Scott said he was pleased with how the Rams played but said they are always looking to get better.

“There’s always ways you can improve,” he said. “Jones Senior came out here and played a great game. I give credit to them. But, there’s always things for us to improve on. Tonight, there are some things we learned, some things we know we need to work on. Every game, no matter what the score is, there’s always things we can learn.”
