Skyline runs wild (337 rushing yards) in 54-7 win over Jesuit
Skyline continued its stroll through District 9-5A with a 54-7 victory over Jesuit on Friday night at Haggar Stadium, handling probably its toughest district opponent with ease.
The Raiders (6-0 3-0) finished with 558 yards and held Jesuit’s usually explosive offense to just 197 yards.
“We’re just trying to get better each game,” Skyline coach Reginald Samples said. “I like the way we’re playing.”
What’s not to like about a balanced offense that rushed for 337 yards and passed for 221 yards?
David Greene rushed for 109 yards and 3 touchdowns. Quarterback Devante Kincade was 11-of-14 for 214 yards and one touchdown, a screen pass that Rashaad Samples took 92 yards.
But the stat that most impressed the coach: No turnovers.
“That’s the thing that impresses me,” Samples said. “We’re a young team. These kids have grown up.”
The Raiders have outscored district opponents, 152-14, with victories over Berkner (36-0) and Richardson (62-7) before playing the Rangers (4-2 2-1).
With their speed, the Raiders can turn simple plays into big gains. Kincade ran for touchdowns of 52 yards and 17 yards.
Ellis Onic ran for a 45-yard touchdown, and when Jesuit punted on the next drive, he went 65 yards for the score. Green’s biggest gain was a 61-yard touchdown.
Skyline shut down the Rangers until Marty Murad’s 1-yard run with 9:49 left in the fourth quarter. Jesuit quarterback Brian Buell was 22-of-35 for 188 yards. But the Rangers only managed 9 yards on 17 running plays.
