Other than a few too many penalties for his liking, Northwood coach Austin Brown liked what he saw in his team’s 49-6 win over Booker T. Washington Friday night at Leonard C. Barnes Stadium.
“We did what we needed to do,” Brown said.
The Falcons got a pick-six by defensive back Jeremiah Reed to start the scoring as part of a 21-point first quarter.
Quarterback Mason Welch had a hand in the next three touchdowns scored for the Falcons – passes to Desmond Harris and Marc Denison as well as a quarterback keeper to make it 28-0.
The Lions answered with a score of their own as BTW (1-7, 1-4) cut it to 28-6 at halftime.
In the second half, Quintavion White and Fabien Sanders had touchdown runs and backup quarterback Hutson Hearron threw a scoring pass to Denison to complete the scoring.
“He (Hearron) played the second half and was very efficient,” Brown said.
Neither team scored in the fourth quarter.
The Falcons (5-3, 4-1) will take on Woodlawn next week before taking on unbeaten North DeSoto in the final regular-season game.
“We haven’t peaked yet, which I guess is good,” Brown said. “Because North DeSoto is peaking and we have them in two weeks. We will have to be ready for that slobberknocker.”
