Valdosta puts up dominating win over Houston County

Houston County stayed closed on the scoreboard but it couldn’t stay close on the field. Valdosta pretty much dominated it there, on its way to a 48-6 win.

Twenty-one of those points came in the fourth – a blocked punt and fumble didn’t help. Seven came to start the game – the only points scored in the first quarter. It was on a nine-yard run by Caleb Robinson and the finish to a 63-yard drive. The Wildcats put up their second score on a 31-yard field goal by Angel Martinez. That was set up via a short field after a blocked field goal.

Terrell Denson made it 20-0 with a 24-yard run. That’s where it stood at the half.

The Bears finally got on board via a blocked field goal in the third. Cedric Carter returned it 63 yards for the score.

Valdosta missed a field goal and Houston County punted before the Wildcats scored again – a Denson run of five yards. That made it 27-6, which is where it stood after three.

A 37-yard run by Zammarion Riley made it 34-6 before another blocked punt against the Bears put it on the 27 and set up Charles William Jr.’s 32-yard run (after a five-yard penalty). That made it 41-6 with 6:38 left to play.

A Bears fumble set up another Denson score – another 32-yard run to make it the final.

Houston County fell to 4-5, 0-2 in Region 1-AAAAAA. Valdosta improved to 4-5, 1-1.
