DEEP RUN -- South Lenoir got off to a good start with a 42-7 victory over Spring Creek on Friday night.

The Blue Devils jumped on top in the first quarter when Will Graves broke free for a 68-yard scoring run. On the team's next possession, quarterback Garrett Holland hit Jaquin Williams with a 17-yard touchdown pass.

Spring Creek got back in the ballgame late in the first quarter when fullback Anthony Russo found paydirt from two yards out. Russo made the extra point and pulled the Gators within 14-7.

"I think we did some things well offensively in the second quarter," Spring Creek head coach Aaron Sanders said. "We need to work on getting stops so that we don't get so far behind early in the ballgame."

South Lenoir put the game away in the second quarter with touchdowns on three consecutive possessions that led to a 35-7 halftime score.

The game was called due to lightning and heavy rain early in the fourth quarter.

Spring Creek (0-1 overall) plays host to Lejeune next week.
