|Vidalia runs away from Bolton|
Vidalia High cheerleaders toss small footballs, small megaphones and T-shirts after each Viking score during games at Dee Faircloth Viking Stadium.
Friday night, the cheerleaders needed their arms iced down by halftime after the Vikings scored 46 first-half points in a 46-24 win over Bolton.
"We got some breaks early and managed to get some points on the board and they had to abandon their running game," said Vidalia coach Dee Faircloth. "We just had everybody running all over the field putting pressure on them."
The win improved the Vikings to 3-4 overall and 2-1 in District 3-3A.
Fans may have figured Bolton was going to be in a for a long night when the Bears had to call a time out before their first offensive play. But two runs by Trey Dorsey totaling 25 yards carried the ball to the Vidalia 42 before a fumble recovered by Vidalia's Seth Barlow put an end to any threat the Bears would present on this night.
On Vidalia's third play from scrimmage, Caleb Vines passed 54 yards to a wide open Gary Stewart, who carried it into the end zone for the first score of the game. The conversion failed, leaving Vidalia with a 6-0 lead.
"That's what we needed to avoid," said Bolton head coach Reynolds Moore. "But give Vidalia credit. They took advantage of it. They smelled the blood in the water, and rolled with it."
Bolton fumbled the ensuing kickoff and after converting a fourth-and-two at the Bolton 25, Vines and Stewart teamed up again on a 5-yard pass play for a score. Vines passed to Reggie Reynolds on the conversion for a 14-0 lead.
Pressure from Dillon King and Van Thompson forced an intentional grounding penalty from Bolton's end zone that resulted in a safety and a 16-0 Viking led with 4:28 remaining in the period.
Vidalia made it 24-0 midway through the second period as Quan Riley, who had 237 yards rushing in the first half and finished with 248, scored from six yards out.
"We've been waiting for that from Quan," Faircloth said. "When he runs the ball like that it opens up the passing game more."
Vidalia recovered the ensuing kickoff. Dee Fleming's 50-yard run was called back for holding, but a 25-yard pass from Vines to Tri McCoy led to a 19-yard TD pass from Vines to Stewart. Vines and McCoy teamed up on the conversion.
Vines finished with 104 yards passing, all in the first half.
Riley scored on an 87-yard run with 2:55 remaining in the first half and on a 34-yard run with 1:46 remaining and Vines ran in the conversion.
Vidalia starters saw limited action in the second half as Bolton scored the only points in the final two quarters.
