The Colony RB Bryan Hammond outgains Woodrow Wilson in 41-0 win
The Colony scored on its first possession Friday night at Franklin Stadium and never looked back, as they dismantled Woodrow Wilson, 41-0.
The Colony senior running back Bryan Hammond rushed for 174 yards on 21 carries, while the Woodrow Wilson offense was limited to 142 yards total offense.
“It was really important for us to set the tempo for the game,” Hammond said. “Our offensive line got us rolling and our defense shut them out. The defense has really been stepping it up this year.”
After Woodrow Wilson (2-1) turned the ball over on downs on the game’s first drive, The Colony (3-0) responded with a score. Hammond rushed for a 34-yard touchdown to complete a 9-play, 88-yard drive. Sophomore running back Alec Gibbons added a 16-yard touchdown score with 5:27 left before the break.
Woodrow Wilson couldn’t gain any offensive momentum in the first half, notching just three first downs. Senior quarterback Ace Felder was replaced after the first quarter by junior Da’Montae Bright. But a stifling Colony defense held Bright to 1-of-4 passing for just three yards in the half.
The Colony senior defensive back Raquwon Henderson intercepted a Bright pass late in the first half inside the Woodrow Wilson 30-yard line. The Colony looked poised to go up three possessions with less than a minute until the break, but a lost fumble inside the 5-yard line kept the score 14-0 at halftime.
It didn’t get any easier for Woodrow Wilson in the second half. Junior quarterback Andrew Lotz threw a 63-yard touchdown strike to senior wide receiver Matt Jordan, followed by a botched PAT, on The Colony’s first drive. Hammond also rushed for an 8-yard touchdown in the third quarter.
Senior tight end Grant Blankenship, a Notre Dame commit at defensive end, hauled in a 50-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter and senior fullback Avery August scored on a 2-yard run to close it out.
The Colony senior defensive back Paul Lewis also recorded an interception late in the third quarter.
Woodrow Wilson senior running back Tracey James finished with 63 yards on 15 rushes. Bright rushed for 68 yards on 9 carries.
