Belmont – The South Point Red Raiders jumped out to a 21-0 first quarter lead against the undermanned Q Foundation and went on to win by a 49-6 final score to remain undefeated (4-0) for the year. Tanner Muse started the scoring on a 55 yard punt return following the Fighting Falcons opening possession. Red Raider quarterback Jaquan Brooks followed up with a 54 yard sprint to the end zone on the first snap from scrimmage and Tyler Bray added the third score of the first quarter on a 2 yard run to finish off the next South Point possession.
The Red Raiders tallied two more scores in the second quarter. The first one came on a 13 yard run by Brooks and Diontrea King added the second score on a seven yard run. Aided by two South Point personal foul penalties, the Fighting Falcons crossed midfield for the first time on their last possession before the half ended. Quarterback Kemani Watts was knocked out of bounds at the Red Raider one yard line as the clock went to all zeroes to preserve a 35-0 South Point lead.
The second half was played with a continuous running clock which shortened the game and limited the number of possessions for each team. South Point opened the second half with Tyler Bray returning the kickoff to the Q’s 35 yard line and Brooks scored on the first play from scrimmage to push the lead to 42-0. After that score the backup players on offense and defense were inserted for the rest of the game for development during game conditions.
The Fighting Falcons lone score came in the third quarter when Kemani Watts connected with Myles Coleman on a 45 yard pass. The Red Raiders added their final score in the fourth quarter on a 3 yard run by sophomore Diontrea King who was playing the quarterback position.
The South Point offense totaled 310 yards rushing and 52 yards passing for a total output of 362 yards with Brooks gaining 143 yards on just six carries. Meanwhile, a swarming South Point defense held the Q Foundation to 47 yards rushing and 97 yards passing for a total of 144 yards. Kemani Watts completed 10 of 21 passes but he tossed two picks, one to Charleston Odom and the other to Ben Washam.
Red Raider coach Mickey Lineberger said, "We want to get better and tonight we were mainly competing against ourself. The biggest room in the world is "room for improvement" and we want to fill that room up."
South Point will be on the road next week for a tough contest against AC Reynolds before entering conference play the following week.
