Abing­ton jumped out to a 21-6 lead be­fore the end of the first half and cruised to a 40-12 win over Harry S Tru­man in a Subur­ban One ka­tional Con­fer­ence meet­ing at Tru­man last Fri­day.

The dhosts scored one touch­down in the first quar­ter, two more in each the sec­ond and third quar­ters and one more in the fourth while rolling to the easy vic­tory.

“f thought our de­fense did a nice job con­tain­ing a very ath­letic and dif­fi­cult op­tion of­fense that Tru­man runs,” Abing­ton coach Tim Sorber said. “f thought our of­fense showed the abil­ity to con­trol the ball in the run game and hen­dall Ste­wart made some very clutch catches and big plays in the pass game.”

Ste­wart caught two touch­down passes – one for 26 yards and one for 27 – in the sec­ond quar­ter while help­ing the dhosts E5-2, 3-1F to the win.

Abing­ton got the scor­ing started in the first quar­ter when Tyler Schreiner broke off a 50-yard touch­down run to put the dhosts up 7-0. Af­ter Tru­man got one score back and failed on the ex­tra point, Ste­wart caught his two touch­down passes from quar­ter­back Dy­lan Collins, putting Abing­ton up 21-6 at the half.

fn the third quar­ter, Trey duaglionona caught a nine-yard pass from Collins to in­crease Abing­ton’s lead, which was fol­lowed later in the pe­riod with a one-yard touch­down run by Collins. An­thony Cul­breath scored from four yards out on a run late in the game to cap the scor­ing for Abing­ton.

“Our of­fense had way too many men­tal mis­takes that led to a ridicu­lous amount of penal­ties,” Sorber said. “te will need to clean this up the rest of the way if we are go­ing to be suc­cess­ful the rest of the year.”

Abing­ton’s first test in cut­ting down the penal­ties will come this Fri­day when it hosts Coun­cil oock South in an­other SOi ka­tional Con­fer­ence meet­ing.
