Sussex Tech's Nolan Lamontagne scores a TD vs. Appoquinimink 

Sussex Tech's Ricky Kane and Michael Norsworthy each ran for a touchdown and connected for a touchdown pass in the Ravens' 31-7 win at Appoquinimink Thursday night.

After being shutout to start the season, Sussex Tech's offense has steadily improved, and it started with some help from the defense.

Cameron Johnson recovered an Appoquinimink fumble, and a few plays later Kane turned a quarterback option keeper into a 3-yard touchdown, and an 8-0 lead after he also ran in the conversion.

Appoquinimink failed on a fake punt at the end of their next drive, and this time Nolan Lamontagne scored from 5 yards away to double the lead to 16-0 after Northworthy's 2-pt run.

Tech would knock on the door of another touchdown before halftime, but a fumble at the goal line gave the ball to Appoquinimink at the 2.

Sussex Tech didn't leave that situation empty-handed, as Jason Genshaw tackled the quarterback in the end zone after a bad snap for a safety, and an 18-0 halftime lead.

Norsworthy found the end zone twice the rest of the way, as he scored on a 25-yard touchdown pass from Kane, and then scored a 4-yard touchdown to end Sussex Tech's offensive night.

Appoquinimink ended their shutout stretch going back to Week 2 as Avery Richardson scored a 3-yard touchdown with 3 minutes left, but it wasn't enough.

Sussex Tech (2-2) begins Henlopen North play next Friday night against crosstown rival Sussex Central.

Appoquinimink (1-3) also has a rivalry game next Friday, as they play at No. 1 Middletown.
