King’s Fork dominated Indian River en route to a 36-14 victory at home on Friday night.

“I think defensively they were smothering and very stingy throughout the entire game,” assistant coach Vincent Pisani said. “Offensively, we pretty much stuck to our game plan with a whole lot of people touching the football.”

The Bulldogs generated 328 offensive yards with 11 different players contributing. The King’s Fork ground game produced 267 of those yards.

Quarterback Uriah Adams ran 11 times for 84 yards and two touchdowns, including a five-yard keeper on the option to start the game. Adams passed for 61 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

For the next score, Davon Grayson wasted no time in his first game of the season, hauling in a 23-yard touchdown pass from Adams.

The Bulldog defense made its presence known later in the first half by scoring a safety when DeShawn Johnson brought the opposing player down in the end zone.

Charles Clark took the ensuing free kick 65 yards to make the score 23-0.

Indian River scored in kind on the next kickoff.

Clark responded in the second half by turning a punt return into another 65-yard touchdown. Clark, a senior who has committed to play for Virginia Tech, also had six carries for 72 yards.

Late in the third quarter, Adams finished off the Bulldogs’ scoring with a 22-yard run.

DeShaun Wethington also had 6 carries for 66 yards and one catch for 13 yards.

The Bulldogs face Nansemond River Sept. 14.
