William Penn scored two second half touchdowns en-route to a 21-7 road victory over Middletown Friday night at Cavalier Stadium.
William Penn remained undefeated following a 21-7 road victory over Middletown Friday night in a game played at Cavalier Stadium. The Colonials move to 6-0, while the Cavaliers drop to 5-1 on the season.
The Colonials scored on their first drive of the game for a 7-0 lead. The scoring drive came after a Middletown punt was blocked after a bad snap from center.
The Cavaliers counterattack brought the score to 7-7 just before halftime on a pass play from quarterback Vince DelPercio to receiver Ken Edelin.
In the second half, William Penn again scored on its first drive to move the score to 14-7. Running back Reggie Caroll had a big night for the Colonials. The Cavaliers moved the ball well in the second half but suffered from penalty-it is, which cost the teams some points off the scoreboard. Another touchdown proved fatal to the Cavaliers as the Colonials closed out the game with a 21-7 victory.
Next week William Penn hosts Concord on Saturday night under the lights at 7:30 p.m. This game marks the Colonials first-ever home night game.
The contest was Middletown’s Homecoming game for 2014. Members of the Class of 1964 were honored before the game, marking the team’s 50th anniversary. The 1964 team never lost a football game in four years, and were part of Middletown’s incredible 53 game winning streak during the 1960s.
The Cavaliers will try to get back on the winning track with a road game at A.I. DuPont Friday night at 7 p.m.
