3114Alief Elsik’s E.J. Davis scored four touchdowns -- including two in the first three minutes of the game -- as the Rams rolled over South Houston, 58-13, Saturday night at Veterans Memorial Stadium to complete the first week of 2015 competition for Pasadena ISD football teams.

Davis needed only seven carries to gain 138 yards on the ground, easily surpassing the Trojans’ total offensive output of 95 yards.

The Rams needed just over five minutes to storm to a 23-0 lead. Davis scored on TD runs of 26 and 21 yards. After a high snap on a South Houston punt attempt led to a safety, quarterback Devin Henderson raced 55 yards for another Elsik score.

Just over two minutes into the second quarter, Davis scored again, this time on a 68-yard punt return, to give the Rams a 30-0 lead.

South Houston broke through just before halftime following an interception by Sammy Rodriguez. Waidi Oladimeji got the TD on a four-yard run.

But Davis retaliated with his fourth TD, this one a 60-yard scamper with 33 seconds left in the quarter to lift the Rams to a 37-6 halftime lead.

The Trojans added a second TD late in the third quarter on a 41-yard pass from quarterback Joshua Williams to Kory Hubbard. The pass was just the second of the game for South Houston and the Trojans’ only completion.

Elsik attempted only seven passes and complete only three – but still managed 461 yards of total offense.
