Middletown improved to 4-0 on the season Thursday night, breezing by St. Georges Tech 49-7.
The night was full of big plays for the Cavaliers, as several players found the endzone including Ernest Washington, Kedrick Whitehead, Najair Smith, Kenneth Edelin and quarterback Drew Fry.
Washington was electric on special teams, returning two punts back for touchdowns against the Hawks, including returns of 64 and 50 yards.
Whitehead also found the endzone twice on the evening, scoring in the first on a 2-yard run and once again in the fourth on a 70-yard run.
Fry was a dual-threat behind center Thursday night, rushing for a 44-yard score in the first quarter while tossing a 19-yard score to Kenneth Edelin in the second half.
Washington kicked off the scoring early in the first quarter with the first of his two punt return touchdowns to put the Cavaliers up 7-0.
After a Jalen Smith 3-yard touchdown run for the Hawks made it 7-7, Middletown scored twice before the end of the quarter; Whitehead’s first score from the goal-line and Fry’s 44-yard rush for a touchdown.
Najair Smith’s long touchdown run put the Cavaliers up 28-7 at the halftime break.
Washington’s second punt return TD put the Cavaliers up 35-7 in the third quarter but the Cavaliers continued to pour it on in the quarter going up 42-7 after Fry’s connection with Edelin.
Whitehead’s second score of the night in the fourth was the final exclamation point on the Cavaliers’ victory.
Middletown looks to stay undefeated when they host Appoquinimink next Friday night; kickoff scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
