Football Cruises By St. Andrews 56-6
DAVIDSON — The Davidson Wildcats scored twice in a 12-second span of the first quarter and never looked back in a 56-6 rout of St. Andrews Saturday night at Richardson Stadium.
The Wildcats averaged 9.3 yards per play (56 plays, 523 yards) and built a 28-0 lead in the first 13:56 while registering their second straight lopsided win and improving to 2-1.
Running back Coy Williams galloped 70 yards untouched up the middle at the 9:43 mark of the first quarter to give the Wildcats a 7-0 lead. On the next play from scrimmage, defensive end Jonathan Hammond intercepted a pass at the goal line and scored to give the Wildcats another quick score and a 14-0 lead.
From there, the Wildcats, who had 11 players rush for at least 22 yards, scored on six of their next seven drives. Williams added a 1-yard touchdown run, and quarterback Jayden Waddell’s weaving 61-yard scoring run made it 28-0 with 1:04 left in the opening quarter.
Aaron Maione scored three times — first on a 5-yard run, then on a 6-yard pass from Waddell and finally, on a 6-yard run. Mari Adams’ 16-yard touchdown run with 53 seconds left in the third quarter finalized the scoring.
Jaden Pask and Marcus Heard Jr. led the Wildcats with six tackles apiece.
The Wildcats open the eight-game Pioneer Football League schedule next week at Presbyterian.
