South throttles Boone

Daniel Boone’s winning streak came crashing down Friday night in Colonial Heights as Sullivan South blew out the Blazers, 56-0.
Despite entering the contest as winners of their past three games, Boone appeared to be a team still looking for answers as turnovers were again a problem as was a defense which just couldn’t stop talented Rebel quarterback, Dylan Wieger.
Wieger passed for 174 yards and three scores and added 87 yards on the ground with another two touchdowns rushing. Most impressively, however, was all of Wieger’s touchdowns came in the first half.
Wieger got the scoring under way in the first quarter with a 9-yard touchdown run. A possession later added his first passing score on a 38-yard touchdown pass to Christian Comsa.
The Blazers gave South their third touchdown of the opening quarter on an interception returned 75 yards for six more.
The Rebels would keep their foot on the gas in the second quarter, adding three more touchdowns, the first coming on another Wieger—Comsa connection, this time on a 43-yard touchdown pass.
South’s other scores in the second would be on a 20-yard Wieger run and an 11-yard Wieger touchdown pass to Josh Booker.
The third quarter wasn’t any better for Boone as Booker rushed for a 25-yard touchdown to put the hosting Rebels up 49-0.
Comsa would complete his big game and close out the scoring with the second pick six of the game, intercepting a Boone pass and running 76 yards for the touchdown.
On offense, the Blazers couldn’t get going. They struggled to only 156 yards of total offense, completed just over 20 percent of their passes, and averaged under 3 yards per carry on the ground.
South moved to 5-1 on the season with the win, and Boone fell to 3-2.
It won’t get any easier for the Blazers next week as they will travel to Kingsport to take on Dobyns-Bennett.
