Cavaliers dominate Warriors for win


  • Follow High school

PLAY OF THE GAME: With a healthy lead nearing halftime, Augusta Prep showed off some trickery. On fourth-and-10 from their own 27, the Cavaliers had Kevin Huggins take a pitch to the left. Instead of running with it, the lefty threw deep, and quarterback Nate Pylant hauled down a 31-yard reception in double coverage.

STAR OF THE GAME: Pylant led all players with 177 rushing yards on 10 carries. He also scored on runs of 53, 82 and 10 yards.

WHY AUGUSTA PREP WON: The Cavaliers dominated from the get-go, out-gaining the Warriors 436-35 in total yardage. Nolan Brandon (95 rushing yards) handled the inside running duties, opening the other running lanes for Pylant and the rest of the Cavaliers.

WHY SKIPSTONE ACADEMY LOST: The Warriors gained only a pair of first downs and were simply outmatched, leading to a running clock in the second half.

QUOTABLE: “It makes me feel incredible because it means to me that we’re playing as a team; that my line is doing what they need to do, that Nolan is doing what he needs to do, and we’re all working as one.” – Pylant on his offense’s efficiency in the opening-round playoff victory.

RECORDS: Augusta Prep 9-1; Skipstone Academy 4-5.
