South Carolina quarterback commit Dakereon Joyner had four touchdowns in the second half Friday to lead Fort Dorchester to a 35-14 win over Dorman.
Joyner got off to a slow start but finished 9-for-17 passing for 82 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions and also had 15 carries for 135 yards and two scores.
Fort Dorchester was shut out in the first half and trailed 7-0 at halftime before scoring 35 points over the final two quarters.
“It felt great. We definitely started off slow. I guess that’s like the first-game jitters or whatever,” Joyner said. “But we played well as a team in the second half and just made a great run.”
Never miss a local story.
Fort Dorchester scored on its first three possessions in the third quarter and in less than eight minutes turned a seven-point deficit into a 21-7 lead.
“Coach wanted us to get rolling and that’s what we did,” Joyner said. “I played horrible in the first half, but you’re going to have games like that. I’ve just got to accept that and bounce back in the second half and be the greatest player for my team.”
Joyner had touchdown runs of 4 and 7 yards and had passing touchdowns of 20 yards and 10 yards.
