Wilson Hunt’s ground attack was sufficient to produce a 42-14 Quad County 3-A Conference win at South Johnston on Friday night.

South senior defensive lineman Cameron Howell left the game in the closing minutes by ambulance.

“He’s doing good,’ said South coach Lee Webb on Saturday. “He got a stinger and might have a concussion, but he is resting.”

Hunt attempted just one pass and it was incomplete, but the Warriors had 316 yards rushing. Jahvonne Williams had touchdown runs of eight and 63 yards in the first half as the visitors led, 14-0, at the break.

Williams finished with 14 carries for 145 yards and two scores. Jaiden Terrell had 124 yards on 18 rushes with two TDs as Hunt improved to 5-3 overall and 3-2 in league play.

South (4-4, 2-3) got 214 yards passing from Riley Adams, who completed 18 of 36 with one TD and two interceptions.

Kalib Brown had five catches for 97 yards and one score for the Trojans. Aiden Williams led the ground game for the hosts with 19 carries for 80 yards and a TD.

South goes to East Wake (1-7, 1-4) on Friday night for a 7 p.m. kickoff.
