Team Stories

The varsity football Warriors used six touchdowns from senior Tai Goode to rout Faith Christian, 65-14, Friday night in Rocky Mount. The Warriors (2-0) trailed 14-6 early in the second quarter before Goode went to work. He scored on a 27 yard run, a 12-yard pass from James Talton and added the two point conversion on another Talton toss for a 20-14 halftime lead. Goode returned the second half kickoff 65 yards for a score, then jetted his way to a 75-yard TD run on the next possession for a 33-14 advantage. Goode capped his night with a 37 yard scoring reception from Talton later in the third quarter as the Warriors outgained Faith 439-181. "Tai is a playmaker," said coach Dan Casey. "He is extremely explosive and took advantage of some good blocks that sprung him for big yards. James did a great job orchestrating our big drives and completed 66% of his passes. The defense played well for the most part, so I'm really proud of our team." Talton was 10-15 for 152 yards and four touchdowns. Goode accounted for 166 rushing yards, 73 receiving and 65 return yards. Robert Batchelder had two touchdown receptions and Cole Deihl scored the final touchdown. Houston Walker led the defense with eight tackles.  

The varsity football Warriors opened the season with a 51-19 rout of Greenbrier Christian Academy from Chesapeake, VA Friday night at John A. Murray Field. The Gators took the opening kickoff and marched down the field to take a 7-0 lead. They wouldn’t score again until midway through the third quarter. By that time, the Warriors led 45-13. “We responded well after they scored early,” said St. David’s coach Dan Casey. “I was impressed with the way we tackled after their first drive and the way our defense competed.” The offense did its part with 513 total yards including 185 on only eight carries for senior Tai Goode. He started the second half with an 85 yard scoring jaunt, one of his four TD’s on the night. Junior quarterback James Talton completed eight of 11 passes for 188 yards and a touchdown and ran for 105 yards with a pair of TD’s. Robert Batchelder caught four passes for 129 yards. “I thought James grew a lot at his position over our three weeks of practice,” said Casey. “He proved it under game conditions tonight with a good pace and good decisions. Tai was his usual outstanding self and Robert had some good catches. It was a great way to start the season.” St. David's senior James Motter took the photo that accompanies this post.
