GOOSE CREEK -- Goose Creek coach Chuck Reedy said his program has had more monumental victories in his time, but he ranks Friday night's 56-7 win over Fort Dorchester near the top of the list.
The Gators rushed for more than 500 yards in dominating the outmanned Patriots at John Fulmer Field.
"To play against a quality football team like this and dominate the game like we did, it certainly ranks right up there," said Reedy, whose team improved to 4-1.
It marks the second straight season the Gators have beaten Fort Dorchester (3-2) after losing five straight in the series, and this one was hardly in doubt after two touchdowns in the final 5:05 of the first half made it 28-7 for the Gators.
Goose Creek scored 14 points in each quarter and topped the 50-point mark for the fourth time this season.
Caleb Kinlaw led three Gators with over 100 yards rushing, finishing with 150 yards and four touchdowns on 16 carries. Quarterback Jaquan Marsh added 114 yards and scored once, while Tramel Terry added 108 yards and a score.
In all, eight different players helped account for the 538 yards on the ground.
"That's what we do," Reedy said. "We've got very good backs, a good quarterback and a big offensive line. I thought we played very physical tonight."
Goose Creek travels to Stratford on Friday.
Fort Dorchester scored 126 points over its first three games but had just 10 points in losses to Summerville and Goose Creek.
The Patriots finished with 234 yards and had two turnovers.
Quarterback Ethan Long completed 10 of 27 for 95 yards with an interception and a TD.
Fort Dorchester meets Colleton County on Friday.
