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.
