Hodgson blows by Newark

By Brandon Bossert 1:51pm, October 25, 2014
VIDEO: Highlights of the Silver Eagles win
Hodgson has had an up-and-down season thus far, coming off of a championship season, they sat at 4-3 entering Saturday. Newark, on the other hand has seen mostly success in their 2014 campaign, with only one loss to their name.

The Yellow Jackets struck first. Quarterback Benjamin Campbell rolled to his right, and found Darryl Chambers across field, who would glide in for the opening touchdown.

Hodgson answered back, Da'Von Riley caught a short pass at midfield, and eluded everyone on his way to the end zone.

From there, Newark could not stop Hodgson. DeJuan Outlaw received a pitch on an option, and scored to put the Silver Eagles ahead for the first time.

Hodgson quarterback Ray Jones would then steal the show. The Silver Eagles drove into the red zone three more times in the second quarter, and Jones capped off every drive with a rushing touchdown.

The Silver Eagles scored 42 unanswered points on Newark, and would win by a final score of 50-20.

Up next for Hodgson (5-3), they will travel to McKean to face the Highlanders Friday night. Newark (6-2) returns home for senior night against the Cavaliers of Middletown.

VIDEO: Highlights
A.I. duPont Tigers traveled a short distance to take on the Concord Raiders on a perfect football Saturday. Both teams are having respectable seasons but looked to improve on their records.

In the 1st quarter both teams scored almost at will behind some great running by their backs. Brycen Alleyne from Concord sped off for a 22 yard touchdown late in the 1st to give his team the lead 14-6. But just a short while later, A.I.'s Anthony Christopher found his way to the end zone to tie it up.

Late in the 2nd quarter the scoring continued. After an interception by Concord's Brody Kennedy, the Raiders were driving down the field and it was Avery Roberts who punch it in to give them the 26-14 lead.

On the next drive, the Tigers found themselves backed deep into their own territory facing a late down situation when senior quarterback Freddie Heard scrambled right and pitched it off to Quadree Henderson who took it 84 yards for the touchdown.

The Raiders, Jaquiere Custis-Quattlebaum, took the ensuing kickoff and ran left then looked right and seen a ton of daylight. As he rounded the corner the crowd grew louder and louder and 80 yards later he was in the end zone celebrating a kick return for touchdown. Concord would lead at halftime 32-27.

In the 2nd half the defense would carry both teams swiftly through the 3rd quarter as the clocked seemed to never stop, both teams ran the ball early and often with much success but no points to show for it. Both defenses had goal line stands in that 3rd quarter also.

Late in the 4th quarter Concord's Avery Roberts would punch in a 1 yard touchdown which sealed the victory for the Raiders and they would go on to win 46-34.

Next up for the Raiders is Appoquinimink while the Tigers will take on Charter.



Wesley sets school record for points in win

By Sean Greene 1:17am, October 26, 2014
Wesley broke a school record for points in a game as they defeated Virginia-Lynchburg 75-12 in a game played in Virginia Saturday afternoon.

The Wolverines offense was on full blast on a perfect mid-fall afternoon in the Shenandoah Valley, as they scored on 11 of their 12 complete possessions on the afternoon.

Joe Callahan finished 14-of-18 for 246 yards and 5 touchdowns. He began his afternoon with a 33-yard TD pass to Matt Bundy just 2:39 into the contest.

Brandon Wright lost a fumble on the next drive for Wesley's 7th turnover of the season, but Peyton Rose made up for it soon after as he forced a VUL fumble which skittered out the back of the end zone for a safety for the Wolverines.

The ensuing drive after a free kick took just two plays, as Callahan found Steve Koudossou on a 44-yard hookup to make it 16-0.

Wesley's next drive went 92 yards, ending with Middletown-alum Jamar Baynard's 7-yard run and a 23-0 advantage just 54 seconds into the 2nd quarter.

Callahan would find tight end Kyle George for a 25-yard score on the next drive, and then Sosthene Kapepula intercepted a VUL pass to get up Eric Spiedel's 40-yard field goal to put Wesley ahead 33-0 with 7:41 to go in the half.

After Freeman McPhearson found DeRay Crawford for a Dragon touchdown, Wesley marched 54 yards in the final minutes of the half, with Callahan connecting with Koudossou for the 2nd time, this time from 3-yards away, to lead 40-6 at halftime.

Wesley's opening drive of the second half found the end zone again as Callahan's 5th touchdown of the day was a fade pass to Dover's Xavier Allen.

Zach Smith entered for Callahan, and he tossed two touchdown passes, one to tight end Tory Robinson, and a second to receiver James Okike to give Wesley a 61-6 lead after three quarters.

Kennard Squirrel's 2-yard touchdown run and Bundy's 95-yard kickoff return ended the scoring for the Wolverines.

Speidel hit all 10 of the extra points following the touchdowns to tie his single-game school record set last week against Menlo College. He hit 27 point-after-touchdowns during the 3-game road trip.

Wesley (8-0) will host the College of Faith Saturday at Noon inside Miller Stadium.

Ziemba's catch saves Spartans

By Brandon Bossert 11:20pm, October 24, 2014 - Updated 11:40pm, October 24, 2014
VIDEO: Highlights of St. Mark's win
Fresh off of their emotional win against Salesianum, St. Mark's played host to the Riders of Caesar Rodney Friday night.

Jordan Downes made a name for himself against the Spartans. On his teams first possession he galloped 75-yards to set up Caesar Rodney's first score. There would be more from Downes later.

St. Mark's struggled to take control of the game. Rhett Schweizer scored on the first St. Mark's drive. A field goal soon after gave the Spartans an early 10-6 lead.

With every St. Mark's punch Caesar Rodney had a response, and the Spartans would go into the locker room at halftime up only three.

Coming out of halftime, St. Mark's quarterback Matt Williams found Dalton Ziemba on the home sideline, he would break through a would-be tackler, and would be tackled out of bounds at the opposing 1-yard line. That long pass play set up another Schweizer touchdown run. For the first time the Spartans had a double-digit lead.

At this point, Downes took over for the Riders. St. Mark's run defense seemingly had no answer for Caesar Rodney's rushing attack in the second half. Downes scored the second of his three touchdowns to put the Riders within a field goal.

Facing a fourth down in enemy territory, St. Mark's gambled and won on a successful fake punt that set them up in the red zone. Schweizer again would capitalize for his third touchdown of the game.

After a Rider touchdown and Spartan punt, Caesar Rodney smelled blood. Downes would cap off his night with another long touchdown run to put the Riders ahead 35-31 with 6:29 left in he fourth. Downes finished the night with touchdown runs of 9, 41 and 36 yards.

With time winding down in the fourth, St. Mark's drove inside of the red zone. Williams dropped back, rolled to his right, and floated a pass for Ziemba in the end zone. The pass appeared to be out of reach but a desperation dive by Ziemba allowed him to corral the pass with his finger tips for what proved to be the game-winning touchdown.

St. Mark's escapes with the victory 38-35.

St. Mark's (6-2) next challenge will be St. Elizabeth's at home next weekend during the Spartans' senior night. Caesar Rodney (2-6) will take on Smyrna at home next Friday night.

Tower Hill shows up big against Conrad

By Marcus Saunders 11:05pm, October 24, 2014
VIDEO: Highlights
Tower Hill played host to the Conrad Redskins who is entering the game with an impressive 5-2 record on the season.

Early in the game Conrad's passing attack looked as if it would be too much for the Hillards to handle when Dayne Llamas dropped back and found D'Angelo Walton for big gains, one of them the game's first touchdown.

But Tower Hill would not stray from their game plan, the running attack was in full swing tonight behind Anthony Falco, Noah Thomas, Carter Cucuzella and Matthew Smith.

Just before the half, with Tower Hill up 20-6, Llamas looked to spark a drive for his Redskins. As he dropped back and let one fly across the middle the ball was snagged by Myles Lane of Tower Hill and he would not stop until he reached the end zone. The Hillards led 27-12 going into the half after another score by Conrad.

In the 2nd half it was more of the same from the running attack of the Hillards and the clock seemed to never stop. Conrad had their chances though but they would not reach the end zone in the 2nd half. They were also plagued by turnovers, senior captain Jim Guan had two fumble recoveries. One came off a bad snap and the other came when Llamas put it on the ground trying to tuck it and run.

The Hillards gained the victory 44-12 as they look to take on Tatnall next week. Conrad is scheduled to face Dickinson.
