Vikings blow out Blue Jays
Lake, Molock combine for seven TDs
SEAFORD, DEL. — Cambridge-South Dorchester High’s football team rebounded from its loss to North Caroline with a 54-6 blowout victory over Seaford on Friday.
The Vikings (2-1) amassed 493 yards on only 21 plays. Tre’ Lake rushed for 244 yards and three touchdowns, and backfield mate, Tajh Molock, added four touchdowns on 154 yards.
“I felt we had a very good week of practice,” Cambridge-SD head coach Jake Coleman head coach. “The kids were very, very sharp and focused.
“Last week, North Caroline exposed a lot of things we needed to work on, and I felt the good week of practice addressed those things,” Coleman said of his team’s 35-21 loss to the Bulldogs. “The team came out with a strong performance tonight.”
The Vikings marched 53 yards in five plays on their opening drive. Molock carried for 18 yards and quarterback Tyler Harding delivered a strike to C.J. Brummell on a corner route for a 21-yard gain. Lake capped the drive two plays later with a 2-yard touchdown run for a 7-0 lead.
After the defense recovered a fumble on Seaford’s next drive, Lake sprinted 78 yards for a touchdown to make it 14-0.
The Vikings’ defense forced a three-and-out on the next Blue Jay possession. A bad snap on the punt attempt put the Cambridge-SD offense in prime possession to score at the 10-yard line.
Harding (2 for 2, 31 yards) wasted little time, connecting with receiver Jimmy Schulze for a touchdown pass and a 20-0 lead.
Aaron Collins got the ball right back for CambridgeSD, recovering a fumble at the Blue Jay 40. Lake’s 28-yard run set up a 9-yard touchdown scamper by Molock for a 27-0 lead at the end of the first quarter.
Seaford tried to get back in the game, and marched
inside the Vikings’ 10-yard line on a 10-play drive. On first down from the 9, Cambridge-SD defensive tackle Ethan Carmine stuffed running back Stephon Short (13 carries, 128 yards) at the line of scrimmage.
Two straight incompletions by quarterback Isaiah Lake set up fourth-andgoal. Lake rolled right and found Short, but Brummell made a crunching hit to stop Short before reaching the goal line.
When Cambridge-SD took over, Harding handed to Lake, who burst through a hole into the open field. Lake made a quick cut and raced to the end zone for a 92-yard touchdown for a 34-0 lead.
Molock added to his scoring totals on the next drive before halftime with a 12-yard touchdown run for a 40-0 lead.
Seaford could not stop Molock or the running clock in the second half. On Cambridge-Sd’s first play of the second half, Molock burned the Blue Jays for a 68-yard touchdown run for a 47-0 lead.
“Tajh is a playmaker,” Coleman said. “He is as fast as grease lightning. It is definitely a big bonus having a kid like that to hand the ball to.”
On the Vikings’ next offensive drive, backup quarterback Koby Jones handed to Molock who got an escort from lineman Joshua Matthews, before cutting right and scoring his fourth touchdown for a 54-0 lead.
Short capped the games’s scoring with a 58yard touchdown of his own in the fourth quarter.
Cambridge-SD returns home to face 1A rival Kent County at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 23.
