Hampton took control early and never looked back.

The Bulldogs used the run game to roll to a 64-0 victory over county foe Unaka in non-conference action on Friday’s rainy homecoming night at J.C. Campbell Stadium.

Hampton improved to 7-2 on the year while Unaka dropped to 1-8.


The Bulldogs’ offense was in a groove.

Hampton recorded 395 total offensive yards, including 309 on the ground.

Matt Hughes finished with 102 yards on nine carries with a touchdown, while Isiah Greenwell had three carries for 96 yards.

Sophomore Conor Jones was 5-of-6 passing for 76 yards and two touchdowns.


Hughes put the Bulldogs on the board in the opening minutes of the game, then a pair of Jones touchdowns — one to Caleb Oaks and the other to Jonah Jones — gave Hampton a 24-0 lead. Greenwell scored on a 61-yard touchdown as HHS maintained a 31-0 lead at the end of the first.

In the second quarter, Oaks produced his second touchdown of the night on a 7-yard run. Dylan Moffitt got in the scoring act with a short touchdown. The Bulldogs took a 52-0 lead into the half after Douglas Tolley jumped on a Unaka fumble in the end zone.

In the second half, Tristan Lipford and Aidan Vines added touchdowns.


Logan Benway finished with 43 yards on 15 carries, including a pair of strong runs in the second half. Landon Ramsey was 6-of-10 through the air.


Hampton will wrap up the regular season as Cosby is slated to visit J.C. Campbell Stadium for senior night. Unaka is set to travel to Sunbright for its regular-season finale.

Both teams will open the playoffs on Nov. 8.
