Scott, ground game key Havelock victory

Published: Saturday, December 1, 2012 at 08:08 PM.

That time was in the second half. Scott had 109 yards on the ground, and his 2-yard dive lifted Havelock to a 35-21 lead with 5:14 left in the third quarter.

Scott then added a 13-yard scoring run in the first minute of the fourth quarter, giving Havelock a 42-21 lead and giving the Rams the idea that they had gained control of the contest.

Scott was quick to give credit to the offensive line.

“With all those other guys out there, it’s not just me,” Scott said. “They’re the ones who made all the holes for me and made it happen. I just kept believing them and kept trusting them.”

Havelock coach Jim Bob Bryant said the Rams made adjustments at halftime, looking at more runs outside to give Scott open running room.

“We tried to get Derrell on the edge,” Bryant said of his super junior, who had 18 carries in the contest. “Our wide receivers did a good job with some crack blocks on the linebackers. Our offensive line set the edge, and we were able to get him outside.”

Senior offensive lineman Donnie Richards said the front five had a difficult time in the first half with just four offensive possessions.
