Woodbridge honors the life of Troy Haynes, shuts out Archmere at home
GREENWOOD, Del.- Just five days after the passing of former quarterback Troy Haynes, the Woodbridge Blue Raiders move to 5-0 on the year with the 27-0 win over Archmere.
It was a tribute to one of the best players to don the Blue and Silver. Troy Haynes led the Blue Raiders to their first two state championships in school history (’16, ’18). Haynes’ jersey was brought out to the 50 yard line for the coin toss as an honorary captain.
After a scoreless first quarter, the Raiders finally got on the board behind an eleven yard Dalton Perdue bootleg as he hurdled a defender into the end zone. Woodbridge would get another score, this time a 79 yard Jayquon Massey run to the outside to extend the lead to 14 at the half.
In the second half, the Blue Raiders would continue their dominance on the ground. Tyrez Cannon on the pitch, cuts back across field and he took it 78 yards to the house. The extra point was no good so its 20-0 Blue Raiders. On the ensuing Auks drive, the Woodbridge defense would get into the scoring. Michael Plummer picked off a screen and took it 22 yards to pay dirt headed into the fourth quarter. The home team would run out the clock in the fourth as they honor Troy Haynes with the 27-0 win over Archmere.
Despite the passing of his brother, Tray Haynes decided to suit up for the game. Haynes recorded three carries and two receptions in the Blue Raiders win. In a game where they fought like four, they won by four touchdowns.
