All Williamsburg

Yellow Jackets remain unbeaten in district play with win

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / The Endzone Staff

WILLIAMSBURG — If there was ever a doubt about who would come out on top in Friday’s district matchup between Williamsburg and Berea, the Yellow Jackets erased it on their first play from scrimmage.

Quarterback Dalton Sizemore connected with Corey Shelton for a 14-yard touchdown strike with just 16 seconds gone by in the game and the rout was on, as the Yellow Jackets cruised to the 56-13 victory.

From that point it was all Williamsburg as Jerry Herron’s squad scored on its next two plays from scrimmage when Sizemore connected with Chase Lowrie (34-yard touchdown) and Skyler Griffith (five-yard touchdown) to extend the Yellow Jackets’ lead to 21-0 with 8:57 to play in the first quarter.

After the game, Herron said he was proud of his team’s effort and was quick to point out that no matter what the expectations are coming into a game, the team still has to come out and execute.

“We’ve played Berea for several years now and they’ve about got us a few times, so it’s been kind of like the proverbial trap game for us,” Herron said. “This year we really told the kids that they (Berea) have a good football team and can do some things to slow down the clock and they bought into what we were saying.

“The guys came out and just took it to them and we were really happy with the effort of the entire team,” he added.

Though they were unable to find the end zone on their third possession, the Yellow Jackets tacked on a safety after they pinned Berea back on the four-yard line, pushing the lead to 23-0.

Despite the 23-point lead, the Yellow Jackets weren’t about to slow down on either side of the football.

After Jefferson Patrick stretched the lead to 30-0 on a one-yard touchdown run, a 21-yard interception returned for a touchdown by Lowrie put Williamsburg on top, 37-0, at the end of the first quarter.

A two-yard touchdown run by Michael Dylan Rose-Creekmore stretched the lead to 43-0 and a two-yard scamper by Jefferson Patrick pushed the margin to 50-0 at halftime.

With Williamsburg’s second-string defense on the field to start the second half, Berea was able to get on the scoreboard on its first drive when Deondre Tate scored on a nine-yard touchdown run to trim the gap to 50-7 with 5:35 to play in the third quarter.

A five-yard run by Williamsburg’s Alex Patterson put the Yellow Jackets on top, 56-7 with 10:30 to play in the fourth quarter.

A late touchdown reception by the Pirates’ Brenton Phillips made the final score 56-13 as Williamsburg took a knee for the game’s final play.

Herron and company will regroup Monday as they get set to try and seal a district championship next week against Lynn Camp on the road.

“Our goal is to win all of our district games and get that No. 1 seed so we get home playoff games and get into the region finals,” Herron said. “We’ve got big goals and this team has known that since day one, so we just have to keep working toward them and that’s what we’ll do next week.”
