Kenston Forest School’s varsity football team continued its remarkably dominant run this season with a 28-0 victory over visiting Hampton Roads Academy (HRA).

The Kavaliers now have a 3-0 record and have yet to be scored on by an opponent, outscoring its three foes so far by a combined 122-0.

Time was limited for Kenston Forest on Saturday as the game ended up being significantly abbreviated.

“There were (nine minutes and) 32 seconds left in the second quarter when we had recovered a fumble, and Hampton Roads Academy said they had to leave and head back to the Hampton, Virginia, area due to multiple injuries during the first quarter,” Kavaliers Head Coach Joseph Kaiser said. “We scored all 28 points in the first quarter, and our boys played very hard and with class.”

Kavs junior Quinton Hawkins stood out on offense, with three carries for 71 yards and two touchdowns, one pass for 30 yards and a touchdown and one catch for 13 yards.

Senior Jah’Tavious Houston finished with six carries for 88 yards and a touchdown.

“Our running backs Jah Houston and Quinton Hawkins ran very hard,” Kaiser said.

Sophomore Trey Lewis caught the scoring toss from Hawkins.

Defensively, Kenston Forest was led by junior Thomas Inge, with seven total tackles, including three solo tackles and two for a loss, along with a sack, a forced fumble and a recovered fumble.

Junior Ronique Capers recorded six total tackles, including four solo and one for a loss. Senior Colton Carter registered five total tackles, including two solo, Lewis had four total tackles, including three solo, and Hawkins ended up with three solo tackles and a forced fumble.

Grabbing one interception apiece for the Kavs were Lewis and sophomore Ryan Whitehead.

It is important to reiterate that these stats were achieved across a little more than one quarter of play rather than an entire game.

“I was very proud of our defense,” Kaiser said. “They were hard-hitting, ferocious and precise and detailed in all that they did against our opponent this past Saturday.”

The coach noted that he was proud of his team as a whole.

“We need to work hard this week to be successful versus a strong Covenant School team,” he said.

Kenston Forest will host the Covenant Eagles on Friday at 7 p.m. before beginning a series of three straight road games.
