Havelock senior running back Derrell Scott was restricted to the sidelines for most of 28-16 victory over Richlands on Sept. 27.

Against Jacksonville on Friday night, he was right back cutting and slashing between the lines, in a 42-0 shutout victory over the Cardinals.

Scott rushed 21 times for 174 yards and four touchdowns to lead Havelock to a 7-0 record and its third victory over the Cardinals over the past year. Havelock has outscored Jacksonville in those last three meeting by a combined score of 130-12.

“All of the credit has to go to my offensive line,” Scott said. “They opened up the holes and I couldn’t do it without those boys.”

Scott had suffered a bruised back against Northside on Sept. 20 and ran just three times against Richlands.

“It felt great getting back out there after sitting last week,” he said. “I love football so much, and to be back 100 percent, it felt great.”
