"The defense definitely played well. We wanted to get a shutout. We preached that all week."
Haddon Heights (6-2) allowed its only first down when Jordan Wallace scrambled for 23 yards with 11 minutes, 29 seconds left in the third quarter.
At that point, the Garnets were outgaining the Panthers (2-5), 298 yards to 38.
The final tally was 431-30, as Collingswood netted negative yardage over the rest of the game.
Running backs Khyleef Moore and Julian Faison, both playing for injured starters, bulldozed the Panthers defense, and quarterback Dante Pinckney shredded it to pieces. Pinckney completed all six of his first-quarter passes for 78 yards.
But his shining series was the final drive of the first half. Pinckney drove the Garnets 96 yards in the final minute. He capped the drive - one in which he went 4-for-4 passing for 77 yards - with a 29-yard touchdown pass to Kashif Miller. That allowed Haddon Heights to go into the locker room ahead by 21-0.
It was Heights' only score of more than 4 yards, as the team generally marched up and down the field.
"Our offensive line did very well. We have a lot of athletes. We just came out and executed," Pinckney said.
Pinckney finished the first half 10-for-15 passing for 155 yards. He finished the game 11 for 17 for 158, and was pulled after the Garnets took a 35-0 lead in the fourth quarter.
