Phoebus 37, Hampton 14 (10/22/10)

October 23, 2010

by Jon Ford

It was a cold night at Darling Stadium in Hampton, VA, and as usual Phoebus vs. Hampton was the biggest thing in town. The two cross-town rivalries drew a crowd of 10,000 plus for the battle of the unbeatens.

The 1st quarter was full of defensive stops. With Hampton leading 3-0, a costly penalty against them allowed Phoebus to get in the red zone for the go ahead score.

With 2:20 minutes left in the 2nd quarter, Phoebus forced a punt and took advantage of the short field position to go straight to the air and expand their lead to 17-6. Hampton tried to put a scoring run together while taking momentum away from Phoebus, but too many mistakes left too much time for the passing game of Phoebus, who scored again on a difficult pass play down the middle of the field and a2-yard run on a quarterback sneak. The score was 24-6 Phoebus at the end of the first half.

Phoebus wasted no time scoring in the second half as they scampered for a 70-yard opening kick-off return for a TD. The 3rd and 4th quarters continued to be no contest as Phoebus continued to pour it on. A 4th quarter Hampton touchdown was too little and too late. Phoebus continued their winning streak with a final score of 37-14.

The game’s outcome was no surprise, but the margin of victory was with fans walking out in disbelieve at the lopsided score.
