Hilton Head Prep 35, St. Andrew's 14
Teron Daley rushed for a pair of first-half touchdowns, Noah Sulek caught a blocked punt in the air and took it 30 yards for a score and the Hilton Head Prep defense kept St. Andrew's out of the end zone before intermission on the way to a 35-14 win.
"At the beginning of the season, I don't think a lot of people thought we'd be where we are right now at 5-4," Dolphins coach Kevin Wald said. "I'm very proud of our guys."
Wald said Daley had a good night running the ball and praised his offensive line.
Never miss a local story.
"I thought our line did another good job tonight up front," Wald said.
In the second half, St. Andrew's went to a wishbone in an effort to get back in the game.
"They ran it well. They drove the ball and chewed up a lot of clock," Wald said. "We held them to two scores. I thought that was pretty solid."
Prep did have one hiccup, about 30 seconds before the half. The Dolphins had a 21-0 lead and the ball deep in their own territory.
"I thought we were on the 9 or the 10, when in fact, we were on the 1," Wald said.
A bobbled shotgun snap by quarterback Charlie Wilmot resulted in a sack and two points for St. Andrew's. Wald said, had he realized where the Dolphins were, he'd have called for something different.
"I'd have gone under center, called a sneak and gone in to the locker room," he said.
In the end it didn't matter and the Dolphins can turn their attention to 8-1 Hilton Head Christian, which visits Prep at 3:30 p.m. Friday.
"We've certainly got our hands full," Wald said.
