School is about learning and we learned a few things on a rainy Friday night at Skyline as the Eagles hosted Huron in a match-up between two teams searching for their first SEC wins of the season.
One, Skyline isn’t as bad as their record shows.
Two, Huron still has some work to do.
Three, Darryn Davis can throw the rock.
The Eagles scored on their first two possessions, built a 28-0 halftime lead and coasted to a 41-0 over visiting Huron before a dedicated crowd that was forced to sit through a steady mist, chilly temperatures and a lengthy delay just before halftime.
Davis threw four touchdown passes in the first half and tossed another in the second half to help lead Skyline.
The senior quarterback tossed a 22-yard TD pass to Brian Scurlock to make it 7-0 with 9 minutes left in the first quarter.
With 14 seconds left in the first quarter, Davis threw a 40-yard strike to Kejon Hunter to make it 14-0.
Meanwhile, the Eagles’ defense didn’t let the River Rats get anything going. They shut down the run and were all over the field in the secondary.
Davis connected with Kenyatta Ewing on a 30-yard TD strike to make it 21-0 with 9:25 left in the first half.
With 1:10 left in the half, Davis threw a perfect ball down the middle to a wide open Hunter who raced into the end zone to make it 28-0.
Andrew Lafferty nailed all of the extra points in the first half.
Davis threw a 28-yard TD pass to Myles Miller with 8 minutes left in the third quarter. Junior kicker Isabelle Crumm kicked the extra point to push the lead to 35-0 and force a running clock.
Miller raced 76 yards for another score to make it 41-0 with 10:27 left in the game.
