The North Forsyth Vikings bused more than four hours to tangle with the two-time defending state champion Havelock Rams Friday at Havelock High.

The Rams were waiting, raring to drive a bus of their own.

Havelock unleashed an offensive firestorm that included five rushing touchdowns and 421 yards of total offense in a 48-2 mauling.

Derrell Scott rushed for 201 yards on 23 carries and scored a pair of touchdowns, while Taylor Woods carried 14 times for 97 yards with three scores and also caught a 6-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Travis Sabdo.

“I give all of the credit to the line,” Woods said. “They were blocking their tails off tonight and I love those guys. They played as well as they could tonight.”

Sabdo threw for just 92 yards a week after throwing for 245 against Anson County in the second round, but had had two touchdowns and no interceptions.
