Hoover cut its deficit to 14-7 on sophomore tailback Shaun Dotson's 4-yard score early in the second quarter. That was set up by Huskies sophomore quarterback Tyler Americo's lateral after a 9-yard gain to the 50 to senior wideout Joey Forbes, who sprinted down the sideline for a 45-yard gain to the Skyhawks' 5.
After that, though, Scott scored on its next four possessions to sew the game up.
"We wanted to try something new since everybody knew exactly what we do,'' said Bias. "This week we got better by learning something new. We started using [this offense] three days [ago] and we're already executing. It opened a lot more holes. It messed with their heads a little bit.''
Forbes finished with 46 yards on two carries for the Huskies (1-7) and Americo went 6 of 11 passing for 62 yards with an interception and added 33 yards rushing. Dotson was held to 11 yards on five carries, but added four catches for 48 yards.
"They're a big physical team,'' said Hoover coach Tim Meyer of Scott. "They come off the ball hard. They ran a couple of wing-T traps and a couple of other things. They're just a good football team. We played pretty well for most of the first half. Our kids never really gave up. They played hard.''
Hoover honored its third Athletic Hall of Fame class at halftime. Stephen Chandler, Matt Fleshman, Dave Gandee, Anita Holbert King, Richard Stump and Robin Vealey were recognized for their on-field accomplishments, Pete Kelley was enshrined for his contributions in coaching and athletic administration and Charles Watt Jr. was honored as a valued friend of the program for years of volunteer service.
