Screven destroys AAA Patriots 42-0 as Prescott goes for 253 on the ground
Amassing almost 500 yards of offense while holding their hosts to not even 100, the Screven County Gamecocks of Ron Duncan manhandled the AAA Westside Patriots to the tune of 42-0 at The Battlefield in Augusta Sept. 4.
Improving to 2-0 on the season and entering the game with a Georgia Sports Writers Association statewide ranking in AA of seventh, the Roosters will host Wade Hampton, S.C., this Friday night at Kelly Memorial Stadium.
The horrendous Gamecock effort of two years ago in Augusta and the tightly contested Kelly Memorial contest of a year ago against the Patriots never materialized this time around.
Scoring on their first two possessions and opening the second half with three scores in the first 3:05 meant there was little doubt.
Even when the first-team offense sputtered with back-to-back poor second-quarter possessions, the Dirty Bird Defense limited Westside to just 26 combined yards on each of the following possessions.
Of those two possessions, one of which ended on a fumble and one of which ended because of a pair of motion penalties, Duncan said, “I think we left two touchdowns off the board in the first half. I was not happy.”
So dominant was the veteran defense clad in Red and White that the Pats ran not a single play inside SCHS territory.
In the middle of the third stanza, Westside had three consecutive snaps from the midfield stripe and lost one yard on the three. The home team totaled 57 yards rushing on 28 carries (1.8) and 34 yards through the air.
Worry over the Patriot running tandem of Josh Reynolds (15 rushes for 12 yards) and Aaron Commings (9-for-21) just never materialized.
With a defensive line that beat the bigger Westside offensive line off the ball in charge from the beginning, ever the coach wanting his team to get better, Duncan still said of his defensive line, “I thought our DL came off the ball at times. I think when we got up we maybe relaxed a little and stopped playing with correct technique.”
Offensively, the line of junior Kameron Kirkland, sophomore Derrick Arnett, junior Stephen Thompson, junior Richmond Whitfield, sophomore Davien Perry, and senior tight end JT Hodges opened the door for their backs to accumulate 431 yards on just 41 snaps (10.5).
Almost gaudy numbers for the starters in the backfield saw senior tailback Malik Prescott with 16 totes for 253 yards; sophomore quarterback Armani Bunbury with 7-for-131; and sophomore fullback CJ Wright with 5-for-20.
Bunbury also tossed for 64 yards and a pair of scores to sophomore Tyquan Johnson.
Prescott, who scored on runs of 40, 6, and 11, had seven runs of greater than 10 yards, while Bunbury had three.
Bunbury also had a scoring run; Jermany Hawkins ran in a two-point conversion; and Tyler Owens was 4-for-5 on PAT attempts.
On Prescott’s night -- the biggest by a Gamecock since 2011 -- Duncan said, “I thought Malik played well with the ball in his hands. He still has to get much better when it is not in his hands.”
Prescott’s 253 yards were the most rushing by a Gamecock since Jeremy Johnson’s 265 in a loss to Swainsboro on Oct. 28, 2011. Johnson also had the most recent 200-plus game with 216 against Westside on Oct. 19, 2012.
