Hampton used a methodical approach to take the upper hand in a county clash.
The Bulldogs captured a 36-0 win over Happy Valley on Friday night in Region 1-2A action at JC Campbell Stadium.
With the win, Hampton improves to 2-2 on the year with a 1-0 mark in region action, while HV falls to 0-3 on the season and 0-1 in region action.
On the game’s first drive, Hampton quickly moved into HV territory, but big defensive plays from Mason Norman and Joseph Sowards slowed the drive, and the Warriors held strong on fourth down.
The Warriors were unable to get anything going on their first offensive series as Shayden Oliver and Jaylen Burleson recorded a sack to force an HV punt.
The Hampton offense was able to drive deep into Warrior territory and convert on fourth and goal as Dylan Trivett had a 15-yard touchdown to Maddux Wilson.
Trivett added the two-point conversion as Hampton held an 8-0 lead.
After a quick stop on the defensive side of the ball, Hampton marched down the field and scored again as Trivett raced 14 yards for a touchdown to give HHS a 14-0 lead.
Trivett added his third touchdown of the night later in the quarter – this one on a four-yard run – as Hampton held a 20-0 halftime lead.
The Bulldogs saw momentum continue to be on their side despite a hard-fought HV effort.
After a safety on an errant punt snap, Geno Carrico capped off a quick drive with a three-yard touchdown, and Elijah McKinney intercepted a Warrior pass on the ensuing drive.
J.C. Andes had a couple of big plays for the Warriors and forced the Hampton offense off the field on fourth down.
Gabe McDougald, Aiden Paul, Jamie Esterline, and Sowards each had key plays as HV mounted a drive into Bulldog territory. However, the drive came up empty as the Bulldogs’ Trivett nabbed an interception inside the 10 as HHS took a 28-0 lead into the final quarter.
In the final quarter, J.J. McElyea scored on a three-yard run to account for the final score.
Trivett was 10-of-18 for 142 yards passing while adding 12 carries for 65 yards on the ground. Burleson added 15 carries for 68 yards, while Geno Carrico had eight carries for 59 yards.
