But when the dam did finally break, the McGavock flood came rushing in.
Fourth Quarter Fury
Late in the third quarter Spring Hill still stood a chance, down 14-7 despite struggling on offense and at stopping the run.
But McGavock ran, and ran fast and ran furious, scoring four touchdowns in the last quarter and change on route to a 42-7 flood.
For the game MHS rushed 45 times for 407 yards and four touchdowns. Along with troubles defending the run, Spring Hill committed three turnovers- one of the fourth quarter touchdowns came from a McGavock interception return for a touchdown.
Tylin Oden, who led the Red Raiders to a victory against Summit on opening night, struggled- going 7-17 for 53 yards, a touchdown and 3 interceptions. Dontae Smith piled up 71 yards on 7 carries, and Oden added 46 yards on 11 carries, for Spring Hill.
