South San 0
East Central 28

EAST CENTRAL -- After falling to Steele the previous week by the same score, the East Central Hornets got back on track last Friday night with a 28-0 win over the South San Bobcats to improve to 3-1 in district play.

The scoring wasn’t as wild as it could have been, but the Hornets dominated the game on both sides of the football, as they made things look easy at Hornet Stadium.

The scoring got started in the early minutes of the first quarter, as senior running back Chris Armstrong picked up 31 of his 110 yards of rushing offense with a run into the end zone for East Central. Dalton Zigman came in for the extra point, and the Hornets led 7-0 with 9:33 to play in the first.

The Black and Gold added to the scoreboard during the final 90 seconds of play in the first with a good run by junior Johnathan Jackson. His run went for 12 yards and 6 points. Zigman made it two for two on extra points, and East Central celebrated a 14-0 lead at the end of the first quarter.

After a couple of exchanges, the Hornets scored their third touchdown of the night with 3:27 to play in the half. With the ball spotted just shy of midfield at the Hornet 45-yard line, Jackson took the handoff 55 yards for another East Central touchdown. Zigman booted the extra point, and the score stood at 21-0 as the teams approached halftime.

The final points of the game came in the closing minutes of the third quarter, as junior quarterback Jeremy Jones ran across the goal line from 5 yards out. Zigman remained perfect on extra points, and the final score was 28-0, giving the Hornets another district win.

Jackson led the Hornets with 142 yards of rushing offense and two touchdowns on 15 total carries. Armstrong ran 12 times to earn his 110 yards and touchdown. The Jones brothers completed four of 10 passing attempts for 96 yards, as Christian and Jeremy each completed two passes. Vernest Dotson led the way in receiving with two catches for 53 yards, followed by Patrick Smith with a 22-yard catch, and Dustin Toscano with a grab for 13 more. The offense generated a total of 399 yards on the night, picking up 17 first downs, and was forced to punt only twice.

On the other side of the ball, the Hornet defense played with its usual tenacity. East Central allowed just 47 total yards of offense by the Bobcats, including a dismal 38 rushing yards on 37 attempts. South San wasn’t any better through the air, either, as the Bobcats completed 8 of 19 passes for just 9 net yards.

East Central is now 6-3 overall, and 3-1 in district play. With one game remaining in the regular season, the Hornets appear on track for a good run in the playoffs.

The team will close out the regular season this Thursday, Nov. 8, as the Hornets travel to Corpus Christi to take on the King Mustangs. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
