Big plays boost Concord closer to playoffs

By Sean Greene 11:39pm, October 31, 2014
VIDEO: Highlights of Concord's victory
Concord's Brycen Alleyne rushed for 3 touchdowns as the Raiders kept pace in the Division I playoff chase with a 44-7 victory at Appoquinimink Friday night.

Alleyne and the Raiders gashed the Jaguars all night with runs up the middle, as he scored on virtually similar 45 and 32-yard runs in the first half to give his team a 16-0 lead at halftime following a pair of two-point conversions.

Brian Dennis added to the Jaguars' pain in the 3rd quarter with a 38-yard run just over three minutes into the frame to make it 24-0.

Alleyne then found the end zone a third time with 4:22 left to go in the 3rd to make it 30-0 after three quarters.

Dennis intercepted a pass at his own one yard line, which maybe wasn't a great move, but his 88-yard run on the ensuing drive proved to be the biggest play on a night of big plays for the Concord offense.

After Jeriah Hercules' 70-yard run set up a 2-yard plunge by Derek Thompson to snap the shutout, Luis Echevarria scored for Concord to wrap up the impressive victory.

The win for Concord (6-3) sets up what amounts to a play-in game with Newark next Saturday for a spot in the Division I playoffs. Appoquinimink dropped to 1-8 with the loss.



Saint Andrew's rallies for first win

By Sean Greene 6:41pm, October 31, 2014
VIDEO: Highlights of the Saints' victory
Saint Andrew's Donovan Jackson scored three touchdowns, including a 33-yarder with 10:28 to go as the Saints rallied past Perkiomen (Pa.) 20-13 for their first win of the season.

Perkiomen looked to be in control of the game when senior Tom Aaron rushed for his second touchdown of the first half, a 2-yard effort, with 10:44 to go before halftime. A blocked extra point still had the visitors up 13-0.

The momentum swung just before halftime, as the Saints marched 50 yards down the field, capped off by Jackson's 7-yard score to bring St. Andrew's within 13-7 at halftime.

St. Andrew's forced a fumble on Perkiomen's first posession of the second half, and they cashed it into points when a 30-yard pass from Ryan Bellissimo to John Paris set up a 2-yard run by Jackson. A missed 2-point conversion kept the game tied at 13.

After a defensive 3-and-out, the Saints got the ball back, and this time hit a big play when Jackson swept around the left side, got a great block to turn the corner, and ran for the 33-yard touchdown that sealed the game.

Perkiomen would get two chances in the final minute, but a pass breakup by Anthony Holley finished off the victory for Saint Andrew's, who improves to 1-5 on the season.

The Cavs would punch a postseason ticket if they defeat Newark
Playoff bids can be all but cemented as the Delaware High School Football schedule reaches week 9.

Tower Hill overcomes Dickinson's challenge

By Sean Greene 9:14pm, October 30, 2014
VIDEO: Highlights and Reaction to Tower Hill's victory
Tower Hill defeated Dickinson 28-6 Thursday night, but it did not come easy for the 8-1 Hillers.

The Hillers only had a 7-0 lead going into the 4th quarter on the strength of a 36-yard pass play from Matt Smith to Andrew Brown on their final possession of the first half.

Defensively, Tower Hill was challenged by a Dickinson running game powered by 5'9, 235-pound Daryl Smith, but the Rams could never put together the huge play to complete the drives.

In the 4th quarter, the Hillers may not have hit big plays, but they did find the end zone three times.

The first came on the first play of the stanza, as Noah Thomas pushed a pile forward for a hard-earned, 6-yard touchdown run to put the visitors ahead 14-0.

Dickinson had an immediate answer, as Malich Murray-Wallace picked up the kickoff that went over his head at the three, and despite taking initial contact at the 10, broke free for a 97-yard return to bring the Rams within 14-6 after a missed 2-point conversion with 11:37 to go.

Tower Hill would shut the door on the next two possessions, however, as they marched down the field for separate 10-yard touchdown runs by Thomas and Smith to finish off the scoring.

Tower Hill will face rival Wilmington Friends in a game that could make-or-break their playoff hopes next Saturday, while the Rams host Brandywine in their season finale.
