"That's huge for us," Carpenter said. "We know we can't be one-dimensional and have a very good season. It's hard to believe Tyrhee is just a sophomore. We snapped the ball 70 times and he has to make a decision on 65 of them. People don't understand how much we ask of him."
Reserve kicker Tyler Shaffer, filling in for an injured Logan Garrison, opened the scoring with a 32-yard field goal with 5:47 remaining in the first quarter.
Capital scored three TDs in the second quarter, first on a 21-yard touchdown run from Haley and then Tyrell Davis caught a 9-yard TD pass from Pratt to give the Cougars a 17-0 lead. Davis was far from finished, catching another touchdown pass from Pratt with 57 seconds left to give the Cougars a commanding 24-point lead at halftime.
On the latter score, the Capital junior caught the pass around the 50-yard line, made several starts, stops and juke moves, and then outran the Woodrow defense for a 70-yard TD connection.
"It was one of them plays where you say, 'Come on, run forward,' then 'Nah,' then 'Oh yeah, nice job.' Then 'Don't do that,' then 'Oh yeah, do that.' That's how we coach him to do that," Carpenter joked.
"It was real nice," Davis said. "I was just waiting on my team for blocks and I knew they would get them. They trusted me to get the score. It was all them. It's very fun to play in an offense like this."
Carpenter couldn't have been happier for Davis, who finished with two touchdowns and 138 yards receiving on seven catches.
"That was beautiful," Carpenter said. "Last week he didn't touch the ball at all. He blocked his tail off. I'm so tickled for him. He did the unselfish things. That's the things we have to have for us to win. To see his number come up this week and good things happen to him, that's huge for us."
