It didn't let up to start the second half, either, as SC's B.J. Moore twisted and turned and brought back the kickoff 81 yards for a TD.
"Of course, when you give them a kickoff return for a touchdown and turn the ball over seven times, that's what happens to you,'' said SA coach Steve Stoffel Jr.
St. Albans boarded two scores in the final quarter, with Noah Reed hitting Taylor Clark and Dakota Kelly with identical 5-yard TD passes. Reed completed 12 of 15 throws for 74 yards.
SC's final two touchdowns came from Jay Richardson (14-yard run) and Lawrence Cunningham (2-yard run). Grier did not attempt a pass in the second half, though he did play with the backups through the third quarter, handing off on all but one play. Forrest finished with five catches for 112 yards.
SC coach Donnie Mays was disappointed with his team's line play. The running game finished with 279 yards but had a few stops and starts in the first half.
"We came out sloppy like we did last week,'' Mays said, referring to a 34-27 loss at George Washington. "We talked to them between plays and between series with our offensive and especially our defensive line and told them we've got to do things better.
"I think we ran the ball better in the second half, but I'm not going to sit here and act like we ran the ball well in the first half because I wasn't pleased at all. It was the big plays that kind of sparked us. If we can't run the ball, we're not going to win football games. That's just the way it is.
"I told them no matter how you play, if you come up with a win, it still only goes up as one win. It doesn't go up with how many points you scored. That doesn't matter. We had a challenge up front tonight and for a while, we didn't do well.''
