All year long Washington coached Sport Sawyer has wondered what it would look like if his team played four straight quarters up to its potential.
On Friday night he found out.
The third-seeded Pam Pack (12-2) jumped all over No. 2 Currituck (11-3) and never eased off the accelerator, driving off with a 46-6 victory in the third round of the playoffs.
With the win, Washington advances to the fourth round of the playoffs for the first time in over 57 years.
“We’re very excited to get to the next level of the playoffs,” Sawyer said. “We had four quarters of offense and we had four quarters of defense.
“Our defense shut them out. The only score (the Knights) had came at the end on a scoop and score with two minutes left.”
Washington got two-touchdown performances from running backs Stevie Green and Markel Spencer.
Quarterback Brodie West scored on a keeper, while Rakwuan Sattherwaitte and Xavier Clark each scored a touchdown.
“You have to give the offensive line some credit there,” Sawyer said. “We had a lot of rushing touchdowns.”
With a 46-6 victory, there was a lot of credit to go around the table.
“I think our guys were focused,” Sawyer said. “They came out and did their assignments. They flew around the field and we had a game where five different people scored.
“Currituck has a good offense, but our guys gave a total team effort.”
