Gerald Edwards rushed for 149 yards and two touchdowns and John McDonogh shut down J.S. Clark to earn the District 10-3A win on Saturday afternoon at Pan American Stadium.
McDonogh (2-6, 1-1) got on the board first with a 71-yard touchdown run by Edwards late in the first quarter. The Trojans added a two-point conversion.
The Bulldogs (2-7, 0-3) finally got a sustained drive going just before halftime, but Kalvin Bernard intercepted an Andre Martin screen pass and returned it 57 yards to the Clark 23.
Trevon Green then had his pass intercepted by Martin on the next play, but Martin fumbled the ball and the Trojans recovered it at the Clark 3. Edwards notched his second rushing touchdown with just two seconds left in the first half for a 14-0 halftime lead.
McDonogh scored the final TD of the game on a run by 15-yard run Steven Roberts in the fourth period.
Edwards’ 149 rushing yards came on just six carries.
The game was littered with penalties, with the two teams combining for 18 penalties for more than 150 yards.
