St. Georges Tech used two first half scores and a tremendous defensive effort to shutout Appoquinimink 14-0 on Friday night.
The victory for the Hawks was not only their first win of the season, but their first since moving up to Division I.
Late in the opening quarter, St. Georges Tech opened the scoring when quarterback Robert Shorts found Demetrius Bryson with a long touchdown pass to put the Hawks on the board.
Leading 6-0 nearing the end of the first half, Damani Wells found the edge, turned the corner and scored on a long touchdown run to put the Hawks’ up two scores after a successful two-point try by Shorts.
For the Hawks’ defense, 14 points was enough, as they shut down the Appo offense with a dynamic pass rush and strong line play to stuff the run.
The loss drops the Jaguars to 1-2 on the season as they were unable to win two in a row after last week’s 39-0 victory over Delcastle.
Appo is back in action next Thursday night when they host Sussex Tech at 7 p.m.
After dropping their first two games of the season, including a heartbreaking 30-29 overtime loss to Caesar Rodney last week, the Hawks win moves them to 1-2 on the season.
The Hawks return to the field on Thursday night, traveling to take on Middletown at 7 p.m.
