Daily Times (Primos, PA) - - SPORTS -


Wil­liamson forced eight turnovers, two of which were re­turned for touch­downs, to roll over Gat­taca Col­lege, 45-20, Satur­day af­ter­noon at Alumni Field.

That’s 13 take­aways in two games for the Me­chan­ics’ first 2-0 start to a sea­son since 2005.

The Me­chan­ics picked off six passes a week after they had four in­ter­cep­tions to hold off Jersey Coast Acad­emy, 12-10. Car­di­nal O’Hara grad Jack Gib­son had two of those INTs against Gat­taca to raise his sea­son to­tal to five. Ed Sykes (Chich­ester), George Bradley (Ch­ester), David Derby and Gino DiCamillo (Marple New­town) had one de­fense likes to play take­away. pick each.

Wil­liamson also forced two fum­bles to bring their sea­son to­tal to three in that depart­ment.

That im­pres­sive ef­fort on de­fense en­abled the Me­chan­ics to roll to a 39-0 lead at half­time. Much of the dam­age was done in the first quar­ter as Wil­liamson put up 26 points in a 5 minute, 26 se­cond span. Sykes’ in­ter­cep­tion set up a 13-yard touch­down run by An­drew Hicks that gave Wil­liamson a 13-0 ad­van­tage. King David Bey re­turned a fum­ble 47 yards for a touch­down to close out the first-half bar­rage.

Bradley picked off a Keon Spain pass and re­turned it 51 yards to ac­count for the other de­fen­sive TD.

Hicks paced the run­ning game with 73 yards on 12 car­ries. Dar­nell Wide­man (Ch­ester/STEM Acad­emy) caught two passes for 101 yards, in­clud­ing a 74-yard touch­down from quar­ter­back Vince DelPer­cio. IN­DI­ANA (PA.) 65, CHEYNEY 16 » It was an­other rough day for the Wolves against a na­tion­ally ranked foe on the road. The No. 6/5 Crim­son Hawks (3-0) scored on seven straight pos­ses­sions to end the first half and take a 48-16 lead into the locker room.

Run­ning back Jus­tice Evans car­ried the ball 13 times for 116 yards and two touch­downs to pace a bal­anced of­fen­sive at­tack. Quar­ter­back Lenny Williams com­pleted 10 of 14 passes for 169 yards and two scores.

The Wolves did move the ball, at least through the air. Quar­ter­back Do­minick Trautz con­nected on 20 of 40 passes in Cheyney’s new spread of­fense for 262 yards and two TDs, one to Yves Fer­di­nand and one to Ter­rell Branch. How­ever, In­di­ana held Cheyney to mi­nus-33 yards rush­ing.

Turnovers, though, were the killer. In­di­ana turned those four mis­cues into 24 points. Acad­emy Park grad Eric Doe was in on three tack­les and broke up a pass for the Crim­son Hawks, while start­ing guard Collin McCal­lis­ter (Chich­ester) was part of an of­fen­sive line did not al­low a sack and just three tack­les for loss.
