A rainy night and White Oak stopped the Havelock High football team Friday night – but just for a quarter.

Derrell Scott eclipsed 5,000 rushing yards in his career, and the Ram defense posted its third straight shutout as Havelock defeated White Oak 54-0 in a Coastal 3A Conference game in Jacksonville.

As the rain came down for all of the first quarter, White Oak played its best of the night. The Viking defense forced the explosive Havelock offense to punt twice in its first two possessions, and White Oak’s option-offense also moved the ball well early.

Early in the second quarter of a scoreless game, White Oak drove inside the Havelock 10-yard line and appeared ready to take the lead as junior quarterback Elijah Harris converted a third-down pass to senior back Kendall White for 22 yards before Harris then picked up another first down on an 11-yard run as the first quarter closed.

“I thought we were focused,” White Oak coach Chad Ashley said.

Havelock coach Jim Bryant sure was impressed.
