MORRISVILLE — Delco Christian's offense was simple, three different backs lined up side by side behind quarterback Sterling Williams. One of the backs or Williams would take off running while the other three would pretend they had the ball. The Knights ran exclusively out of that formation for four quarters to keep the Morrisville guessing en route to a 43-20 victory.
David Goines, Ronald Burrell and Alex Linton formed the three-headed rushing attack behind Williams.
"There are no egos on this team, it doesn't matter who's carrying the ball or who's blocking and we all do our jobs,' Knights coach Drew Pearson said. "It doesn't matter who's scoring,'
After Morrisville went three-and-out to start the game, the trio of backs and Williams worked their way down the field with Linton capping off the drive with a 5-yard touchdown run on a drive that consumed nearly half of the first quarter. Morrisville forced and recovered two fumbles in the first half to keep the game close, but could not convert those turnovers into points. Linton and Goines both added short rushing touchdowns to give the Knights a 21-0 lead at halftime.
In the second half, the Bulldogs offense began to show some life, getting on the scoreboard with an 8-yard touchdown run from quarterback Joe Sesar. Despite the loss, the Bulldogs showed some improvement on offense, in their previous five games -all losses- Morrisville failed to surpass 14 points.
"We rushed for more yards, we passed for more yards and our blocking was better,' Sesar said. "We've got to pass more, we have four good receivers and you can't have them get nothing.'
Delco Christian responded to Sesar's touchdown with Linton's third touchdown of the night. One the ensuing Bulldog drive, Burrell took a Sesar pass 91 yards for the pick six. Sesar would throw another interception after getting the ball back and Goines broke off a 35-yard touchdown drive for the Knights' final points of the night.
Morrisville closed the game out with the scoring outburst. Sesar throw a 65-yard touchdown pass to Tahmeir Scott. Recovering the ensuing onside kick, Sesar led the offense down the field and hit a wide-open Uriel Savage for a 5-yard touchdown pass.
