The Woodland Wildcats (2-0) seem to have left its old perception in the dust and continued to look impressive following Friday night’s 55-6 victory over East Hall (0-2).
The Wildcats led 42-0 after the first half of play. Quentin Burgs scored a 7-yard rushing touchdown and Woodland would hold an 8-0 lead following a 2-point conversion on a reception by Titus Jones. On the ensuing East Hall drive, Jayden Ballard would intercept a pass that would set Woodland up in favorable field position. After a few plays, Demarcus Williams would score from seven yards out to give Woodland a 15-0 lead. The Wildcats weren’t done yet. Jakob Foss scored on a quarterback scamper and after Jones’ rushing score on the 2-point conversion, the Wildcats would lead 23-0.
Not only was Jones getting it done on offense, but the senior would grab an interception of his own. Woodland missed a field goal, but on its next drive Jimmy Davis would score from 24 yards out. Not to be outdone, Davis would hit pay dirt once more before the first half came to an end, this one from 30 yards. His second score came after Woodland recovered a pooch kick on the kickoff.
Just before the first half could come to an end, Seth Johnson would come down with another interception and take is back 52 yards for a pick-six. After the first half Woodland was in a commanding 42-0 lead.
In the second half, Davis would score his third rushing touchdown of the day, but it would finally be East Hall’s turn to shine on its first drive of the second half. Its longest drive of the day ended with a touchdown pass to cut into the Woodland lead 48-6. Any hope of a miraculous comeback for the Vikings was thwarted on Woodland’s next drive, which would end with a 37-yard touchdown run from Burgs.
Woodland is now 2-0 on the season and will play Cass next week at 7:30. You can hear the action on bartowsportszone.com
