Saturday, September 26, 2009

Fort Scott's first three touchdowns came as the direct result of Hutchinson turnovers and the No. 6-ranked Greyhounds went on to a 31-0 shutout of the No. 4-ranked Blue Dragons in Jayhawk Conference college football at Frary Field Saturday afternoon.

A Hutchinson fumble led to the Greyhounds' first score, a 3-yard run by Jasmin Hopkins in the first quarter. A LaVonte David interception was converted into Justin Woods' 3-yard score early in the second quarter and another fumble led to quarterback Dominique Davis' 1-yard keeper with 11 1/2 minutes left in the first half.

Fort Scott's other scores were a Kyle Ericson 40-yard field goal with 5:45 to go in the third and a 99-yard TD pass from Davis to Chad Peake with 4 1/2 minutes left in the contest.

Hutchinson (2-1 KJCCC, 3-1 overall) came into the contest ranked No. 1 in the conference in scoring offense, scoring defense, total offense, total defense, rushing offense and rushing defense were held well under their offensive averages by the Greyhounds (3-0, 4-0) and Fort Scott's offense gained well more than Hutch's defense had allowed on average going into the contest.

Davis completed 15 of 20 passes for 275 yards. Hopkins rushed for 118 yards on 25 carries. David had two interceptions for the 'Hounds, who allowed only 199 total yards to a team that came into the game averaging 465 yards per game.

More details will be provided in Tuesday's edition of the Fort Scott Tribune.
