Hilton Head Christian picks up easy road win over Northwood Academy 44-8

Summerville – On a soggy field after an afternoon of rain the defending SCISA AA lower state champion Hilton Head Christian Eagles made quick work of the home standing Northwood Academy Chargers scoring three times in the first quarter on there way to a 44-8 road win.

The Eagles needed only six plays in the first quarter to score their 20 points. Play number one was a 67-yard touchdown pass from JP Peduzzi to Cameron Strickland. On their second play, after a Northwood turnover, Peduzzi took off to the right and outran the Charger defense for a 19-yard touchdown run.

The third and final score of the quarter number one took three plays. Jace Blackshear switched places with Peduzzi at quarterback and on his third throw of the drive he found Peduzzi down the right sideline for a 26-yard touchdown and just like that the rest of the game was a mere formality.

In quarter number two the Eagles would add 17 more points for a 37-0 halftime lead. Jayden Void would score the first points of the quarter on a 26-yard run where he carried three Chargers into the end zone. Unfortunately, Void was hurt on the play and did not return.

Peduzzi would add a 22-yard field goal to his scoring total. On the night he scored in every way possible expect for a two-point conversion. The field goal ended a 12 play 75-yard drive.

Jackson Lanier scored the final points of the first half as he accounted for all the yards on a 27-yard drive. His 14-yard touchdown ended the first half scoring and gave the Eagles a 37-0 lead.

The Eagles scored their final points of the night on their first drive of the third quarter as Blackshear hit Strickland for a 37-yard touchdown strike. It was Strickland’s second touchdown of the night and Blackshear’s second scoring toss.

The Chargers kept fighting all night but were just outmanned but they final cracked the score board when Douglas Watson scored on a 9-yard touchdown run and then he added the two-point conversion. On the night he led the Chargers offense with over 60 yards rushing.

“We knew coming into the game that we just had to play our game,” said HHCA head coach Ron Peduzzi before the game.

The 2-0 Eagles will be on the road again next week as they take on 3-0 Orangeburg Prep a 27-6 winner over Dorchester Academy while Northwood (0-1) will host 1-1 Beaufort Academy.
