It was a rout and it was obvious the night could not go well for South Caldwell. Alexander Central jumped on the Spartans early and cruised to a 54-7 thumping in Hudson.
Junior Bryson Godfrey scored the 1st two times he touched the ball , a 67 yard run on the 1st play from scrimmage and a 70 yard scoring pass from quarterback Gunnar Anderson. If Cougar Coach Butch Carter wanted to make sure he won on his return to Hudson, making certain Godfrey was on the team bus pretty much assured it. Godfrey would finish the night with 168 yards on the ground on just 12 carries. For the 2nd straight game Godfrey also returned a kick-off for a score.
Godfrey wasn’t the entire show though, tailback Devin Weiss ran for two scores and Jacob Parson had one on a 49 yard blast. Tejuen Calhoun scored on a 2 yard plunge and Austin Wooten returned an interception 69 yards for a touchdown. When the carnage was over the Blue and Gold had totaled exactly 500 yards of offense.
Senoir linebcker Tejuen Calhoun, seeing his 1st action of the season after siting out the opener with an injured shoulder led the team in tackles with 11
The win snaps a 5 game losing streak to the Spartans who fall to 0-3 on the season. Alexander Central at 2-0 will host Bandys next Friday evening in Taylorsville.
