GOOSE CREEK—Jacob Park remained on target and Stratford remained undefeated.

Stratford jumped to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter. Jordan Johnson scored the first of his two touchdowns on a 6-yard run. That’s when Park began his air show. He threw an 88-yard TD pass to Thad Thompson and added a 17-yard strike to Tyree Scroggins to push the lead to 21-7.
Park and Thompson hooked up on an 80-yard score and Park then connected with Scroggins again for a 64-yard score.
