Sat. S.J. football roundup: Big rally for Wilson

Posted: October 23, 2010

Woodrow Wilson erased a pair of 14-point deficits by scoring the final five touchdowns, as the host Tigers upset fifth-ranked Delsea, 42-21, on Saturday in nonleague football.

Charles Still and Anthony Haynes combined to rush for 188 yards and four touchdowns for Wilson (5-1). But the comeback kicked into high gear early in the fourth quarter, when Joseph Taylor caught a 65-yard TD pass from Tavaris Headen and Sean Walters intercepted a pass and raced 58 yards for a score on consecutive possessions.

Delsea (6-1) led 14-0 after one quarter, and pushed its advantage to 21-7 early in the third quarter on a 1-yard plunge by Tyler Coulbourn.

Willingboro 14, Pemberton 12 - Matt Dash's two-point conversion pass to Kyle George provided the winning margin for the unbeaten Chimeras (6-0) at Pemberton (2-4).

Willingboro scored twice in the first half on runs by Jahlil Beacham and Rashoun Houston.

The Hornets rallied with a pair of short TD runs by Sultan Washington, including the second with 3:10 remaining, but attempted conversion passes after each TD fell incomplete.

Delran 47, Riverside 21 - Delran (3-4), which had scored a total of seven points over its previous three games, erupted for seven touchdowns - one each by seven players - against the visiting Rams (0-7).

The Bears used 10 runners to pick up 290 yards on the ground, led by Bill Stokes with three carries for 89 yards and T. J. Boyd with two carries for 66 yards.

Stokes' 80-yard TD run down the left sideline in the first period is the Bears' longest run of the season.

Moorestown 41, Highland 13 - Andrew Lisa steered the Quakers (5-2) past visiting Highland (0-7) by throwing three touchdown passes.

Lisa threw for 235 yards, spreading the air attack among Dylan Waller (66 yards receiving), Kamal Steward (55 yards) and Alex Martinelli (52 yards).

Steward, who caught two TD passes, also ran for 45 yards.

Rancocas Valley 48, Lawrence 7 - DeShawn Jones dominated the Red Devils' win over visiting Lawrence (0-6), scoring four touchdowns as part of a 226-yard rushing effort.

Jones sprinted 20, 38, 68 and 42 yards to the end zone among his 19 carries for Rancocas (5-1).

Ryan Flynn completed six of eight passes for 91 yards, and Dillon Finelli added 48 yards in the air by hitting three of seven passes.

Penns Grove 44, Clayton 0 - The Penns Grove (6-1) defense registered its fifth straight shutout and extended its scoreless streak to 23 quarters by blanking host Clayton (1-5).

Jay Brown ran for 130 yards and two touchdowns on five carries, and also caught a pair of touchdown passes from Nick Elmer, who has a South Jersey-best 18 TD passes this fall.


Marcus Upchurch and Karon Gibson each reached the 100-yard rushing mark for host Woodbury (5-1) during the squad's second straight shutout in an interdivision matchup with Haddon Heights (3-3).

Upchurch carried the ball nine times for 152 yards and two touchdowns in his third 100-yard game of the season, and Gibson's second straight 100-yard effort came on 10 carries. Gibson scored the game's last two TDs and has eight this fall.

The Herd has won each of its last four games by at least 30 points.

Paulsboro 41, Overbrook 16 - The Red Raiders (6-0) tuned up for Saturday's first-place showdown with Woodbury in the Patriot Division with a lopsided win at Overbrook (2-4).

Paulsboro scored four first-quarter touchdowns, including Aaron Tilden's 45-yard punt return and Calvin Johnson's 40-yard interception return, for a quick 28-0 lead.

Tilden later scored on runs of 18 and 16 yards.

West Deptford 41, Audubon 6 - The Liberty Division-leading Eagles (6-0) whipped host Audubon (2-4) behind three touchdown runs from Vaughn Scott, a 5-foot-10, 180-pound senior.

Scott scored on runs of 12, 50 and 10 yards, and the defense contributed R. J. Falls' 16-yard interception return for a TD and Jamil Pollard's fumble return for another.

Haddonfield 42, Haddon Township 0 - Dan Ciemniecki threw for two touchdowns and ran for another, while Chris Dengler piled up 171 yards on the ground for the Bulldogs (5-1) at Haddon Township (0-6).

Ciemniecki found Jack Knecht and Matt Bhaya with TD passes, and Dengler, a 5-foot-10, 170-pound junior, carried the ball 23 times, scoring on runs of 1 and 15 yards.

The shutout was the Bulldogs' second straight and fourth in six games.
