Hilton Head Prep loses players, game against Northwood Academy

The Dolphins are on the wrong side of a numbers game and going the wrong way.

With several players already out with injuries and two players suspended, Hilton Head Prep (2-3) lost a couple more to injury in Friday night's 40-13 loss to previously winless Northwood Academy.

"The kids played hard," said Hilton Head Prep coach Kevin Wald, whose team finished the game with 14 healthy players. "They didn't quit. I thought we competed a little bit better than the score indicated."

Wald said Charlie Wilmot played a good game at quarterback despite being hurt.

"Charlie has a banged-up shoulder, but he was able to get through the game," Wald said.

Wilmot completed an 80-yard touchdown pass down the sideline to Logan Clark and rambled 10 yards for another score. He also had a 35-yard touchdown pass called back by penalty.

"I'm proud of our kids," Wald said. "They play hard, do their best and move forward. We'll get a couple back next week. "
