FELTON -- One streak ended, but the most important one continued.

In a key early-season Henlopen Conference Southern Division showdown at Lake Forest on Friday night, Oct. 15, 1999, the Blue Raiders didn't walk off the field with another shutout, but they did walk away with an impressive 28-14 victory that should convince any doubters that they are for real.

Now 2-0 in the South, the Raiders are 5-0 overall. Lake Forest dropped to 1-1 in the South and 3-2 overall.

Woodbridge dominated the game throughout and held a 14-0 halftime lead on a 21-yard touchdown run by C.J. Pitts and a 13-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Jason Rust to wide receiver Jeremy Maddox.

The stalwart Blue Raider defense, which hadn't allowed a single point in the team's first four wins, completely shut Lake Forest down in the first half. The Spartans had minus 21 yards of total offense in the first half, including five plays for losses and a 33-yard loss on a bad punt snap that the Raiders converted into Maddox's TD reception.

Lake Forest did manage to come a little closer in the fourth period, becoming the first team to score against Woodbridge this season on a 3-yard run by running back Mike Taylor with 8:20 left in the game. The run capped a short drive that started with a Lake Forest fumble recovery on the Raider 25.

The Raiders quickly made it 21-7, however, when Jeremy Maddox took the ensuing kickoff at his 11-yard line and burst straight up the middle for an 89-yard touchdown gallop.

A possession later, Rust put the game out of reach with a 71-yard run on a bootleg that made it 28-7 with 3:49 remaining.
