Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - SPORTS - Staff Re­ports

The West Ch­ester foot­ball squad kept its un­blem­ished record in­tact with its sec­ond rock-solid road vic­tory of the 2018 season.

The Golden Rams over­whelmed Se­ton Hill 59-14 on Satur­day in a PSAC cross­over con­test at Of­futt Field. West Ch­ester (3-0 over­all) out­gained the Griffins 328-68 on the ground and rolled up more than 600 yards of to­tal of­fense. The Rams also won the turnover bat­tle, 2-0.

Ju­nior quar­ter­back A.J. Long ac­counted for five touch­downs, with two com­ing on runs of six and 40 yards. He also reg­is­tered three scores on TD passes to Mark Dukes, wide­out Rasheem James and re­ceiver Ethan Price, a trans­fer from Blooms­burg.

Dukes added an­other scor­ing run along with back­field mate Mike Class, and de­fen­sive back Jais­hon Thorn­ton found the end zone on a 36-yard in­ter­cep­tion re­turn. In ad­di­tion, kicker Ge­orge Lambrit­sios chipped in with a 42-yard field goal, for the Rams, who scored the game’s first 35 points and led by 53 at the half.

Long wound up with 393 yards of to­tal of­fense, in­clud­ing a team-high 118 yards on eight at­tempts. James led the way with five catches for 78 yards. Line­backer Tyler Mor­ris­sey paced the de­fense with nine tack­les, one and a half sacks and a forced fum­ble. Cor­ner­back Shaquille James also notched an in­ter­cep­tion. Se­ton Hill (0-3) had 286 pass­ing yards, but most came when the home team was in catch-up mode.

Ranked 18th na­tion­ally, West Ch­ester will open the PSAC East sched­ule next Satur­day at Far­rell Sta­dium (noon kick­off).
