Senior quarterback Damon Dixon completed 6 of 9 passes for 109 yards and connected for four touchdown passes to lead the Hercules High football team to a 38-6 win over Richmond on Friday night in Tri-County Athletic League Stone Division play.

Dixon hit Marquis Davenport for two of the four touchdown passes and hooked up with Armani Reynolds and Antwin Prowers as Hercules scored 14 points in each of the first two quarters to pull away for a big 28-6 lead at the intermission.

Richmond (0-7, 0-2 TCAL Stone) scored midway through the second quarter as quarterback Maricio Williams hit DeShawn Clark for a 23-yard scoring strike but that was all the Oilers could muster on the night.

Richmond running back Trayvon Clay led all ballcarriers with 164 yards on 31 carries but he was kept out of the end zone by the Titans defense.

Poor field position and turnovers hurt the Oilers chances. Richmond had three fumbles and repeatedly botched snaps on punts to give Hercules (4-2, 2-0) excellent field position on at least two touchdowns..

Defensive end Sterling Booker grabbed the ball away from a Richmond back in the first quarter and rumbled 14 yards for a score to give Hercules a 13-0 lead. Kicker Loran Fonseca converted all five PATs and booted a 25-yard field goal with 3:42 left in the third quarter.

Fonseca attempted a 54-yarder in the waning moments but the kick came up about 10 yards short.
