Hoke County Handles Cavaliers 31-7 in Sandhills 3A/4A Action
After the Southern Lee Defense collected an interception by Senior Jaylyn Scruggs and turned away Hoke County on 4th down twice in Cavalier territory in the first half, it was the Cavalier offense that put the visitors on top at halftime at Raeford.
Trailing 3-0 after a 31-yard field goal by the Buck’s Ryan Ramirez, Southern Lee used an 11-play 80-yard drive culminating in a 12-yard run by Junior Tyrice Douglas to lead at halftime, 7-3. But the Cavs couldn’t find the endzone again on the night, as they fall to Hoke County, 31-7.
Douglas finished the night with 123 yards on 22 carries for Southern Lee, including the 2nd quarter touchdown run. Despite not being able to score points, the Cavs did convert 5 of 11 tries on 3rd down.
Southern Lee (0-4, 1-7) is off next week, but return to action at home to face the Vikings of Union Pines (0-3, 2-5) at Cavalier Stadium.
