Kent sacks Snow Hill in prep for QA’s
WORTON — The Trojans enter tomorrow night’s football game against their border rivals from Queen Anne’s on an emotional high after piling up 56 points last week.
Sophomore quarterback Thomas Goldsborough had a career night Sept. 21, completing three of four passes for 120 yards in the shutout of Snow Hill. All three completions came on the first play of a drive and were for touchdowns.
Jose Olavarria also threw for a score, salvaging what was a bad snap on a field goal attempt into a touchdown pass of 8 yards to Ty Wilson.
Drue Walters was 5-of-6 in extra-point attempts and Olavarria ran in a 2-point conversion.
Kent (2-2) took control from the opening kickoff, which Taekwon Duggins returned for a touchdown with only 12 seconds elapsed.
Snow Hill, which dressed only 18 players, fumbled on its first series. Peyton Taylor scooped up the loose ball on the Snow Hill 33. On the first snap, Goldsborough found Corey Robinson in the end zone.
Walters’ kick was true and the lead was 14-0 with 9 minutes, 11 seconds still to play in the opening quarter.
Robinson hauled in another tight spiral from Goldsborough, this one a scoring strike of 33 yards, to extend the spread to 28-0.
Tre Wright on a counter had the Trojans’ fifth score of the first quarter as the lead swelled to 35-0.
The second half was played with a running clock.
Head coach Dave Boyle cleared his bench.
Robinson and Wright each finished with more than 100 yards of total offense. Robinson caught two passes for 66 yards, rushed for 44 yards on four carries and scored three times. Wright gained 43 yards on two carries and caught a touchdown pass of 54 yards.
Kent totaled 183 rushing yards. Wilson had 33 yards and Goldsborough gained 31 yards on two carries.
Taylor and Wilson each had a fumble recovery and Kevin Mallory picked off two passes.
Some of the younger and less experienced players also contributed on defense. These included Collin Futty, Keith Butler, Brandon Myers, Chris Geist and Buddy Welch.
