I was real pleased with our effort tonight, said Spring Garden head coach Jason Howard. The good thing is that we got to rest our starters for the entire second half. We had a real physical game against Cedar Bluff last week, and we needed to get healed up. Woodvilles a very young team, and theyll get better with experience.
Scott finished with 112 yards and two touchdowns on only three carries.
Zach Matthews added 64 yards and a touchdown on nine carries.
Michael Matthews and Reese Johnson also scored touchdowns.
