Red Lion dismantles New Oxford to stay unbeaten
Red Lion used a relentless ground attack on Friday in rolling up a 63-14 homecoming win against YAIAA Division I opponent New Oxford on Friday night at Horn Field.
"It was a good win," said Red Lion coach Jesse Shay. "But now we have a big game (at Central York) to get ready for next week."
The Lions scored on their first three possessions and added a 48-yard punt return to race out to a four-touchdown lead after the first quarter.
Red Lion (7-0, 4-0) kept up the momentum by scoring on its opening two possessions of the second quarter and got a 35-yard interception return by Patrick Daugherty to forge a 49-0 by the half.
New Oxford (0-7, 0-4) managed two third-quarter touchdowns behind an 80-yard pass and a 14-yard pass by sophomore quarterback Connor Becker.
Four Red Lion ball carriers (Zach Throne, Sam Emig, Dylan Gurreri and Tyler Ness) ran for more than 60 yards apiece, and seven players scored touchdowns for the Lions.
