Damekus Taylor Accounts for 6 Touchdowns in Evans's 48-7 Win Over Laney

Dedrrick Holmes is all smiles after Thursday's win.

Damekus Taylor ran for three touchdowns and threw for another three scores Thursday as his Evans Knights blistered Laney 48-7 at home to improve to 1-1 on the season. Taylor's gigantic outing continued the Thomson transfer's red hot start to the season after his three touchdowns on week one when the Knights came up short (35-23) against powerhouse North Augusta. Taylor connected in the end zone with three different receivers, Dedrrick Holmes, Breshawn Willis, and Jason Delley.

When asked after the game (see in the highlight video below) if he'd ever accounted for 6 touchdowns in a game, Taylor was all smiles while crediting his teammates for his standout performance. "I've never done that before. My line did what they had to do, and I did what I had to do," Taylor said.

Another Evans Touchdown came from running back Corey Watkins, who broke a long run to open the third quarter with a score and give the Knights a 42-7 lead. Watkins punished the Wildcats throughout the evening, making big gains rushing, receiving, and returning punts.

Like Taylor, Watkins made Thursday his second standout performance in the season's first two weeks after the speedy back accounted for 153 yards in the opener at North Augusta.
