CAMBRIDGE — The Cambridge-South Dorchester High School Vikings traveled to Snow Hill on Thursday, where they defeated the Eagles, 53-3. The Vikings’ record improved to 4-1, while the Eagles’ fell to 0-5.
There was a bit of déjà vu going on with this one — like in last week’s victory over Colonel Richardson, the Vikings scored twice in a few seconds in the first quarter. On the second play of their first drive, Donald Banks charged 30 yards from midfield to the Snow Hill 21.
On the next play, Nisim Hawkins took it all the way in, and after a James Frazier kick, the score was 7-0.
Snow Hill’s next drive didn’t go their way. On the third play, Jayden Jones snagged a pick, and ran 20 yards for a touchdown. Another good kick, and it was 14-0 with six minutes left in the first period.
On C-SD’s next possession, QB Henry had to throw himself on a loose ball after a high snap. He took a kick to the helmet during the play, and headed straight to the sideline.
On the next play, Dario Belizaire ran 73 yards out of the Vegas package for a score, barely keeping himself inbounds at one point. Frazier kicked into the wind again, this time for a point, and the scoreboard said 41-0.
Belizaire was primed for more action than that — with Henry being the only quarterback dressed for the game and out of action, Dario was the emergency QB. So with the game well in hand, and no point risking further injury, it was Belizaire’s turn to take snaps as Henry sat out the rest of the contest.
As the last seconds of the first half ticked away, the Eagles’ Brandon Anderson made a 25-yard field goal, with the wind at his back. That put Snow Hill on the board, 41-3 at halftime.
The fourth quarter ticked away quickly, with Malcolm Edwards getting into the act with a 20-yard score from a Belizaire handoff. The extra point missed, and the score was 53-3.
On April 9, the Vikings will be on the road at Kent County. Game time is 6 p.m.
