Hodgson's Ny'Ghee Lolley makes a catch against St. Georges

A nor'easter threatened New Castle County for the weekend and St. Georges threatened to ruin Hodgson's perfect record in a Division 1 bout--the Silver Eagles took the earlier game and and never relinquished an early lead, shutting out the Hawks 47-0.

Quarterback C.J. Henry lead the assault on St. Georges with two touchdown throws and a qb-keeper for one on the ground.

Darius Hale made his return after a long absence and was one of three Silver Eagle runningbacks to find paydirt.

Bobby Arnold took it to the house twice on the ground from 52 and 17 yards out.

Freshman tailback Josh Ames broke open an impressive 54-yarder for the exclamation point after breaking several tackles and showing the homecoming crowd that this team has a monstrous backfield for years to come.

After the game, Coach Frank Moffett told his players that they are good, but they are slowly becoming an elite team.

Moffett's crew is the last undefeated team in DIAA Division I, at 8-0, and has only given up two scores in two contests.

A stellar defense, captained by linebacker Brandon Shimko, still has a potent Middletown offense to play in their regular season closer, but has shut down the likes of Sussex Central--whom also looks to make a deep.

The Silver Eagles defense touts an average of just under eight points-per-game and looks to carry that through the rest of the season.

"Coach said it, we have to give it our all for five more weeks," said Shimko. "We always have fun together and it's important that you bond with your teammates. Other than that, we flew around, had fun and played tough, physical football."

St. Georges falls to 4-4 on the season with critical games against William Penn and Delcastle becoming must-wins for the Hawks to have any shot at making the tournament.
