There was no lightning to delay Capital this week.
Freshman quarterback Tyhree Pratt continued his hot start, throwing for 229 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for 69 yards and a touchdown as Capital rolled past St. Albans 61-34 Friday night at Crawford Field.
Last week, Capital was forced to wait an hour-plus after traveling two hours to Greenbrier East due to a lightning delay before taking home a 42-21 victory.
Friday's game started on time, and so did the Cougars.
After being forced into a three-and-out on its first possession, Capital's Davon Tyson intercepted a Taylor Clark pass on St. Albans' third play. Five plays later, Pratt connected with Kashaun Haley for a 53-yard touchdown pass in which Pratt scrambled right, paused and threw to a wide open Haley.
"Back in practice, I always take reps with him [Pratt]," Haley said. "I told him to keep his head up and look for me."
Haley, who is also Pratt's cousin, finished the game with three receptions for 120 yards and two touchdowns for the Cougars (2-0).
"Those two guys [Pratt and Haley] are talented," said coach Jon Carpenter. "I think St. Albans executed as well as we did. We just have some guys that can run a little bit faster. They made big plays.
"Every good quarterback has a receiver and every receiver has a good quarterback."
Haley also returned back-to-back 78-yard kickoff returns in the second half.
