Kendrick Payne had two touchdowns and intercepted a pass in the end zone as Skyline used a dominating third quarter to get its first win of the season with a convincing victory over Kennedy at Tak Fudenna Stadium.

After being held to 64 yards in the first half, Skyline broke with 204 yards while holding Kennedy to 10 rushing yards in the second half.

Payne took the opening kickoff and ran it back 88 yards to give Skyline (1-1) the lead they would never relinquish 16 seconds into the contest. After Jacquese Steen recovered a Kennedy fumble on the first play of the second half, Payne scored on a 34-yard run to extend the Skyline lead to 13-0. Lionel Borrego capped off a 12-play, 71-yard drive for Skyline with a 3-yard touchdown pass to a wide-open Golden Venters.

Kennedy (1-2) had numerous opportunities but were turned away as the Skyline defense had four takeaways in the game. After Payne's kickoff return, Kennedy marched down the field, but Justin Staley's fourth down pass to the end zone was picked off by Payne.

Atu Ohuafi got Kennedy on the board, catching a 61-yard bomb from Staley with 34.1 seconds left. Derek Slater ran for 118 yards on 13 attempts for Kennedy.
