Goochland ground game steamrolls Prince Edward

Goochland’s ground game has been picking up steam of late, but even considering that fact, Friday was an explosive performance for the rushing attack in a 52-22 victory over Prince Edward.

The Bulldogs piled up 500 yards and six touchdowns as a team, with three players rushing for more than 100 yards, as David Dyer’s 181-yard, two-touchdown night led the way. Jaylen Allen went for 121 yards on just seven carries — including a 43-yard sprint — while Connor Saunders had 101 yards on nine touches.

That offensive explosion prevented Jordan Jefferson from having to air it out ofte, as he went 2 for 6 for 50 yards and a touchdown.

Dyer got the scoring started with a 4-yard touchdown in the first quarter, which kickstarted a 27-point first half for the Bulldogs who led 27-14 at the break.

Goochland will finish the regular season on the road against Amelia County as the Bulldogs continue to gear up for the postseason.
