Indians keep Dukes penned up

Published 9:50 am Wednesday, October 24, 2018

The Southampton High School Indians wouldn’t give the visiting Windsor High School Dukes the proverbial inch — never mind a yard — during the hosts’ homecoming game on Friday. The Indians won 52-0.

Specifically, whenever any of the Dukes got possession of the ball, they were quickly stopped in their tracks.

Almost four minutes into the first quarter, the Indians got their first goal, and were successful in the 2-point conversion.

The second quarter is when Southampton really racked up the points. At 9:53 on the clock, the Indians made their second goal; the conversion was good; likewise at 7:35, 2:05 and then 17.2 on the clock, bringing the score to 40-0 by halftime.

In the third and fourth quarters, as in the first, the Dukes were unable to catch a break. But, they also kept the Indians from advancing much further. Southampton didn’t get another goal until 53.7 seconds left; and then the last one at 7:31 in the fourth; both attempts for conversions failed.

Scoring by quarters: Southampton had 8; 32; 6; and 6.
