SUMMERVILLE — Senior running back Kalil Jenkins scored four touchdowns in the first half to pace third-ranked Fort Dorchester to a big early lead and eventual 49-0 win over Cane Bay.

The Patriots, now 2-0, led 42-0 at halftime with Jenkins scoring on runs of 1, 9, 3 and 6 yards. Fort Dorchester took advantage of early miscues by Cane Bay (1-1), totaling only 72 yards on their first four scoring drives, all in the first quarter.

Fort Dorchester also got first-half scores from Dwayne Wright (3-yard run) and a 35-yard scoring pass from freshman quarterback Zolten Osborne to Joel Seaman. Osborne finished with 79 yards passing.

“He’s going to be really good so we’re just bringing him along,” head coach Steve LaPrad said of Osborne.

Senior quarterback De’Andrae Sabb completed all six of his pass attempts for 94 yards while the defense failed to yield a touchdown for the second consecutive week.

“We are getting a little better each week,” LaPrad said. “That’s what we look for as coaches. We are starting to click a little better on offense.

“Our defense played well again. Another shutout so that’s good, and I think we played about everybody. It was a good night. The kids have been working hard.”

The second half was played with a running clock and the Patriots scored on their first possession of the third quarter on Wright’s 2-yard run. Wright also had a 42-yard pass reception from Sabb, who was 3-for-3 passing on the drive.

Cane Bay opened the season with a win over West Ashley last week, and is off next week while Fort Dorchester is scheduled to play in Viera, Florida, pending conditions after Hurricane Dorian.

“It doesn’t look good right now,” LaPrad said in regards to next week’s game. “Really wanted to play. They’re a really good team. We need a good game like that but the good Lord handles that stuff.”

Cane Bay finished the game about 100 yards in total offense. Running back Leon Staley paced the Cobras with 64 yards rushing on 26 attempts.
