Scarlett, Hunt fuel University School’s attack in victory over Gulliver Prep

Jordan Scarlett and Lajuan Hunt both rushed for three touchdowns as University School routed Gulliver Prep 47-7 at Nova on Friday night in the Region 4-4A semifinals.

The Suns (10-2) will play the winner of the Booker T. Washington-Glades Central game, which is scheduled for Saturday.

If the Tornadoes win, it will set up a matchup that most of South Florida has been waiting for in the Class 4A playoffs, featuring a pair of defending state champions that now reside in the same class and region.

“We just had it in our minds all week in practice and had to establish a good run game,” Scarlett said. “We just executed. The schedule has prepared us to match up with [Booker T.]. We are ready. They are a great set of guys. We just need to be smart and execute.”

Hunt rushed 15 times for 117 yards, and Scarlett had nine carries for 102 yards.
