The Coyote’s passing game was firing on all cylinders on Friday night as senior quarterback Joey Perkins threw for four touchdowns during Clarksburg’s convincing 43-10 victory over Springbrook. The win keeps Clarksburg in contention as they improve to 3-1 on the season.
The scoring started from the opening kickoff as the Coyotes returned the kick for a touchdown to take a 7-0 lead before single snap. The Coyotes defense would stifle the Blue Devils most of the game, as the offense racked up points. Clarksburg scored on their first possession to take 14-0 early in the first quarter.
On the next Clarksburg drive, Perkins would begin his assault on the scoreboard. His first pass was an eight yard strike to extend the lead to 21-0.
After starting at their own 20 thanks to a good Clarksburg punt, the Coyotes defense forced the Blue Devils offense to move in the wrong direction. The drive ended with a bad snap recovered by Springbrook in their own endzone giving Clarksburg a safety. The Coyotes took a 23-0 lead with 2:40 remaining in the first quarter.
Less than two minutes into the second quarter, Perkins and the offense would score again, another eight-yard pass to go up 30-0 with less than a minute remaining in the first quarter. In the second quarter, Perkins would throw his third touchdown, this one a long strike to extend the lead to 36-0. The Coyotes would score again in the first half on another short pass to go up 43-0.
Springfield was able to get 10 points late in the fourth quarter to avoid the shutout and cut lead to 43-10.
Clarksburg will travel face Gaithersburg in the Battle of ‘Burgs on Friday, Sept 28. The Trojans 1-3 and are coming off a 33-0 shutout by Northwest last Friday. The Coyotes won the Battle of ‘Burgs 28-14 last year.
