Brock Wood rushed for 308 yards against Scotland County on Friday, October 13.

After completing the grind of the Clarence Cannon Conference schedule, Coach Rob Wilt’s South Shelby Cardinals stepped out of conference play for the first time this year and came away with a convincing 54-16 win over Scotland County Friday night in Memphis.
   A big second quarter put the game away for South Shelby as the Cardinals led 34-10 at the half.
   Scotland County was able to move the ball on the Cardinals at times, especially through the air. Its first drive stalled out at midfield, but the Tigers tried a fake punt but came up short, giving the ball to the Cards on the South Shelby 44 yard line.
   Brock Wood picked up eight yards on first down, and then broke free for a 48 yard touchdown the next play. The two-point conversion came up short and the Cardinals led 6-0 with 7:34 to play in the first quarter.
   Scotland County responded with an 11 play, 47 yard drive that resulted in a 29 yard field goal, to the cut Cardinal lead in half. South Shelby held a 6-3 lead with 2:24 to play in the first quarter.
