SNOW HILL — Trad­ing fum­bles early on against Snow Hill High, the Cam­bridge-South Dorchester High foot­ball team got things to­gether on the next short pos­ses­sion.

Reeling off six first-quar­ter touch­downs, the Vik­ings emp­tied the bench in the se­cond quar­ter, and ran the clock non­stop half­time in a 62-24 vic­tory.

C-SD (7-2) con­tin­ues to hold the top seed in the Class 1A East play­off rank­ings; the Vik­ings wrap up the reg­u­lar sea­son at home Fri­day at 7 p.m. against archri­val Eas­ton. The Ea­gles, now 0-9, visit county ri­val Stephen De­catur on Fri­day, look­ing for their first win since a 24-20 win over Colonel Richard­son on Oct. 24, 2014, a span of 21 straight losses.

After re­ceiv­ing the open­ing kick­off, the Vik­ings started at their own 24. Taj Molock got the call after for the game’s first play, a run that took him to the 33; but he fum­bled the ball, and Snow Hill’s Ru­fus John­son re­cov­ered.

Snow Hill gave the ball right back, though, as Amonty Allen fum­bled and C-SD’s Kobi Ruark scooped it up, run­ning it from his team’s 33 to Snow Hill’s 22. Two snaps later, Tre’ Lake (six car­ries, 131 yards) scored on a 10-yard run. Tyler Hard­ing kicked the first of his four point-after kicks to make it 7-0, Vik­ings.

C-SD got a short field on the next pos­ses­sion, too, after Snow Hill’s next drive ended with a bad punt snap on fourth-and-40 from its 15. C. J. Brum­mell caught a 15-yard pass from Hard­ing on the next snap, scor­ing on the play to make it 14-0.

Lake added three more firstquar­ter scor­ing runs of 9, 32, and 45 yards, and Molock ran one in from 17 yards to make it 42-0, just 12 min­utes into play.

C-SD be­gan to work its backup play­ers in after the open­ing flurry of scores; backup quar­ter­back Jyquan Far­rare scored on a 1-yard run to make it 48-0 be­fore Snow Hill got on the board.

Ea­gle quar­ter­back Takhi Wise did so in dra­matic fash­ion, though, hit­ting Daimian Thorn­ton for a 56yard touch­down. C-SD re­sponded a mo­ment later, as Far­rare hit Jimmy Shulze for a 7-yard pass­ing score that put the game at 55-6 go­ing into in­ter­mis­sion.

Allen’s 11-yard rush, a Wise 4-yard fum­ble re­turn, and Thorn­ton’s 75-yard kick­off re­turn fol­low­ing a 30-yard touch­down run by C-SD’s Shamar Young, ac­counted for the se­cond half’s scor­ing.
