Salesianum's Dylan Mooney celebrates a touchdown against Dover

Salesianum QB Dylan Mooney scored 2 second-half rushing touchdowns to lead the second-ranked Sals to a 42-20 win over No. 3 Dover Saturday night.

Holding a slim 1-point lead at halftime, the Sals' offense made a statement to start the second half, going on a methodical 8:03 drive that ended with Mooney scoring on a QB keeper from 2 yards away to pushed the lead out to 28-20.

Dover's attempt at an answer was stymied by Jehoshua Johnson's interception, and again the Sals would surge their way down the field.

On the second play of the fourth quarter, Andrew Watkins found his way into the end zone to stretch the lead to 35-20 with 11:57 to go.

The Sals would add one more touchdown, as Mooney kept the football on an option-keeper, and trotted in from 10 yards away to finish off the Senators.

It all came after a showdown between running backs Watkins and Dover's Javon Peace.

Peace scored thrice in the opening half, on two rushes and a reception for the Senators, while Watkins also had all 3 touchdowns for the Sals, 2 on the ground, and one on a kickoff return.

Salesianum (2-0) plays its first road game of the season at Appoquinimink on Friday night at 7:00.

Dover (0-2) continues their challenging start to the at Northeast of Anne Arundel County, Maryland on Friday.
