Scott Wallops Holmes 34-7
Bryan Burke - The River City News
Scott scored a nice road win on Friday as they thumped Holmes, 34-7. The Eagles dominated on the ground in their season opener as the trio of Scott running backs thrashed the Bulldogs on multiple big runs.

“I think our kids got tired of hitting each other in practice. We just wanted to face some competition,” said Scott head coach Dan Woolley.

Scott running back Roberto London got the party started early for the Eagles as he scored in the first quarter on a long touchdown run that gave his team a lead they would not lose. Deondre Pleasant also had a spectacular game as he scored touchdowns on a big run and on a punt return and also intercepted a pass in the Holmes end zone.

The Bulldogs struggled to find the big play like the ones that led them to victory a week ago. Tailback Delijiah Ross-Tyus scored the only touchdown for Holmes but was largely kept in check by a fast Scott defense.

“Our defense is playing outstanding. They gave up some drives, but for the most part they played really well. That's what I am really excited about. I knew we'd have some good running backs but the way our defense as a unit is playing is what I am happiest about,” said Woolley.

Scott frustrated Holmes into a multitude of costly mistakes. In addition to the red zone interception, they continued to hurt themselves with what head coach Ben Nevels has called self-inflicted wounds. Pre-snap penalties, dropped passes and a bad snap on a punt were all examples of what went wrong for the Bulldogs. Throw in an injury to Holmes quarterback Desean Brumfield in the first half when they game was still relatively in reach and you had the perfect recipe for disaster. Brumfield returned in the second half.
