Battery Creek made its first win of the season an impressive one Friday, blowing out visiting Creekside Christian 31-6.
Jaeon Allen and Tre Booth had big games on the ground, and Kyseem Jabbar returned a punt 55 yards for a touchdown to lead the Dolphins.
Booth opened the scoring with a 61-yard touchdown run and added a 6-yard TD run in the second half, finishing with 153 yards on 17 carries. Allen rolled up 112 yards on 14 carries, including a 4-yard TD in the first half and a 2-yard TD in the fourth quarter.
The Dolphins’ defense also had a great night, holding the Cougars scoreless until the fourth quarter and wreaking havoc in the backfield all night. Brandon Wilson had five tackles (one for loss) and two sacks, Shamar Hamilton had three tackles (one for loss) and a sack, and Elijah Dean recorded four tackles (one for loss) and an interception to lead the dominant defensive effort.
The Dolphins (1-3) host Lake Marion to open region play on Friday.
