ROUNDUP

Miami Central routs Don Bosco Prep 50-21

 

Special to the Miami Herald

Miami Central took the initial punch from Don Bosco and didn’t flinch. Instead, the Rockets put all of their weapons to use and pulled away from one of New Jersey’s best teams.

Dalvin Cook and Da’Vante Phillips each had two touchdowns in the first half as Central opened a 29-14 lead on the way to a convincing 50-21 victory that pushed its record to 3-1.

The Ironmen (1-2) put together a scoring drive off the opening kickoff and held a 14-10 lead midway through the second period only to see the Rockets come back with three touchdowns in a 5:14 span in the second quarter, all off turnovers.

Cook followed his own interception with a 16-yard score, and Phillips got the next two on 11- and 7-yard strikes from Keith Reed after Don Bosco fumbles, the latter off a sack of Marquis Couch.

Cook finished with 155 yards on 10 carries and three touchdowns. Yearby added 128 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries and Tavius Brown had 106 yards on 6 receptions as the Rockets racked up 459 total yards on offense.

The defense chipped in with eight sacks, including two 2 1/2 by Carlin Clark, and allowed only 77 yards to the Ironmen in the second half.

• Late Friday — Archbishop Curley 43, Ransom Everglades 15: Marlin Harris led the way with two passing touchdowns of 33 and 25 yards and also added two rushing touchdowns. Germaine Smalls returned the opening kick for a 93 yard touchdown and accounted for 290 all-purpose yards. The Knights forced five turnovers en route to the one-sided victory.
