It was Homecoming night for the Highlanders and the seniors stepped up with another big win (48-24) over Kingston. It marks the third time the seniors have defeated the Yellow Jackets.
Several Scott High players were playing like they had something to prove and they did just that. From quarterback, Billy Hall proving that he was back, to Hayden Byrge showing he is still a power runner to JoBen Terry proving that he could catch the ball with a cast on his rand hand.
Hall completed 14 of 21 passes for 285 yards and two touchdowns. He finished with 397 total yards of offense and five touchdowns.
"Billy Hall, welcome back in a big, big way," Scott High coach Keith Shannon said. "His arm is a bit more lively and it's a little stronger. He's playing with more of a sense of urgency now."
Byrge carried the ball 13 times for the Highlanders and finished with 141 yards, two touchdowns and several highlights.
Terry told his coach earlier in the week that it hurt every time he caught the ball, but that didn't stop the senior from recording six catches for 95 yards and a touchdown.
"JoBen is a special person," Shannon said. "With some of the things that he's overcome to play sports, it's a pretty courageous story."
Scott High scored first on a 39-yard touchdown run by Byrge to take a 7-0 lead with 6:26 remaining in the first quarter.
Hall tossed a 69-yard touchdown pass to Byrge to give the Highlanders a 14-0 advantage and they never looked back.
A 16-yard touchdown run by Hall and a one-yard touchdown run by Byrge gave the Highlanders a 27-17 lead at halftime.
Hall rushed for two more touchdowns in the third quarter and Terry caught a nine-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter to round out the scoring.
