Scotland, Jones Run Past Lee County 56-21 in Sandhills 3A/4A Action
Scotland County Tailback Zay Jones rushed for 260 yards and Scotland pulled away from a 21-21 tie to rout Lee County by a 56-21 score in Sandhills 3A/4A conference action. Jones broke free on the game’s 2nd play for a 74-yard score and never slowed down as Scotland scored on 8 of 10 possessions on the night. Lee County kept pace until the final minute of the 1st half, when Scotland scored to take a 28-21 lead at the break.
Lee County was unable to move the ball on the first possession of the 2nd half, and Scotland blocked the Yellow Jacket punt and scored quickly for a 35-21 lead. Lee County mounted a nice drive on the next possession and eventually turned the ball over on downs at the Scotland 7-yard line and Scotland never looked back. Scotland County ended the game with 382 yards on the ground and 530 yards of total offense as the Jacket defense couldn’t figure a way to contain Jones.
Lee County finished with 261 yards of offense in the opening half, but Scotland shut down the Jacket scoring in the 2nd half. Terrance McKendall finished with 93 yards rushing on 17 carries and QB Jack Martin finished with 9 of 14 passing for 134 yards and added 42 yards rushing for Lee County.
The Yellow Jackets are now 1-4 in league play and 4-5 overall and will face Southern Lee next Friday night in the final regular season game.
