CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- From its opening drive, you could tell Capital meant business.
After a Nitro four-and-out, quarterback Tyrhee Pratt misfired on his first pass. But it didn't take him long to find his groove. After handing off to Kashuan Haley for a 3-yard run, Pratt connected on two passes, with the latter resulting in a 41-yard touchdown connection with his brother, Cliff Pratt.
Tyrhee Pratt didn't miss many more after that, finishing 8 of 11 with 213 yards and three touchdowns as visiting Capital, ranked No. 4 in class AAA, overpowered Nitro 52-6 at Underwood Field Friday night.
"We just executed tonight," Tyrhee Pratt said. "Our line blocked really good. People made plays tonight despite the weather."
Pratt also had a 10-yard rushing touchdown.
Despite the temperature reaching as low as 29 degrees, Haley burned up the field to the tune of 111 yards on just eight carries, scoring two touchdowns.
"I got to have my line to what I do," Haley said. "My line just kept working and pushing tonight. Hopefully, we have the opportunity to make the playoffs and go far."
Haley actually had his third touchdown nullified due to an illegal motion penalty. The play was easily the most exciting of the night as Haley ran to the right, tip-toed the sideline, reversed the width of the field before outrunning two Nitro defenders for the touchdown.
