Princeton 69, Shady Spring 0

PRINCETON — Princeton racked up 374 yards in total offense and rolled to a 69-0 shutout over Shady Spring High to open the season on Friday night at Anne S. Hunnicutt Stadium.

Less than a minute into the game, on the third play from scrimmage, Princeton reached the end zone on a 12-yard burst by sophomore Jordan Jones.

Ten seconds later, the football popped from the hands of Shady Spring's Tyler Hanson and Princeton senior Nick Wood snatched it out of the air and rambled 10 yards for another score. Tahj Sho-Johnson’s extra point gave the home team a 14-0 lead.

Princeton quarterback Jay Palmer got untracked as the half wore on. He tossed a pass to senior Kirkland Perdue, who leaped high and fought his way downfield for a 31-yard scoring play.

Sho-Johnson scampered 25 yards untouched for the next score. Palmer added scoring runs of 56 and 8 yards, and Devin Allen returned a punt 67 yards to set up a 49-0 halftime lead.

Sho-Johnson gained 147 yards on six carries. Palmer added another 77 yards.

Shady Spring quarterback Tim Culicerto hit 12 of 21 passes for 134 yards. Johnathan Hardy paced the ground attack with 76 yards on 22 carries.

Shady Spring will host Logan on Friday, while Princeton remains at home to meet Bluefield.
