The St. John’s Christian Academy Cavaliers knew they would have to endure a learning curve in 2013. They just had no idea it would be this harsh.
James Island Christian racked up 52 first-half points on Friday night last week, 30 coming in the first quarter to drop the Cavaliers to 0-2 in SCISA 8-Man football action.
The Lions took just 16 seconds to break the ice. After Cavs tailback Harun Scott fumbled into the end zone following a 75-run run, JICS scored on its next play from scrimmage, an 80-yard run by the Lions’ Josh Smith.
Down 30-0 with less than two minutes remaining in the first quarter, SJCA got on the board with a Scott to Colin Murchison 25-yard touchdown pass. Down 44-8 midway through the second quarter, Scott made it count this time with a 20-yard to make the score 44-16.
The Lions responded with yet another touchdown before Scott and Murchison hooked up through the air again, this time an 8-yard scoring strike to make the score 52-22 at the half.
JICS would go on to score three more times in the second half before the Cavaliers’ Walter Edwards sacked the Lions’ quarterback Jason Carson for a safety.
JICS evens its record at 1-1 while SJCA falls to 0-2.
• Clarendon Hall 74, SJCA 14
In the season opener against Clarendon Hall, the Saints of Summerton scored early and often, notching a 74-14 win over SJCA. Clarendon Hall jumped out to a 30-0 lead in the opening quarter of play.
Down 38-0 in the second quarter, the Cavaliers got on the board when Dustin Parsons connected with Scott on a 60-yard catch and run touchdown pass. Scott would add a second touchdown, an 80-yard run, early in the third quarter to cap the scoring for the Cavaliers.
SJCA travels to North Charleston to face Cathedral Academy Friday night. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m.
