After falling to Havelock last week, the Pam Pack bounced back with an impressive 26-0 win over Coastal Conference opponent White Oak on Friday.
Washington 4-4 (3-1) went into halftime locked in a scoreless tie with the Vikings (0-8, 0-4) but came out of the break on fire as it got two touchdowns from full back Marquin Hill, one from quarterback Jimmy Williams and another from tailback William Ellegor.
Hill scored from four and 10 yards out, while Williams scored on a 3-yard plunge. The speedy Ellegor shrugged off a toe injury and gave the Pam pack a 90-yard score.
Washington’s defense rose to the occasion several times throughout the night. The unit’s most notably stand came after a turnover gave White Oak the ball at the Washington 3-yard line, but the defense was able to keep them out of the end zone for the team’s first shutout of the season.
“It was definitely a big win for us,” Washington coach Sport Sawyer said. “It was 0-0 at the half but our guys were able to come out and stop then in the second half. Then we were able to get a few things going on offense.”
The Pam Pack will be on the road again next Friday as they look to string consecutive wins together for the second time in five games when it takes on D.H. Conley
