Bris­toli Simmons run over Jenk­in­town

Times Chronicle & Public Spirit - - OPINION - By Nick Iuele

Jenk­in­town did not play very well against Bris­tolI but it is tough to win any game when aonte Simmons is run­ning at you.

“qhey were just bet­ter in ev­ery phase of the gameI” Jenk­in­town coach Phil Gorm­ley said. “lf­fense or de­fense it didn’t mat­terI they are a re­ally good football team.”

qhe arakes were killed by the one-man wreck­ing crew in their 45-T loss to Bris­tol. Simmons ran for O8N yards DnG fivH WRuFKGRwns Ln WKH rout. Whether he went up the mid­dle or to the side­li­nesI the Jenk­in­town de­fense had no an­swer for him.

“My kids played hardI but we don’t have any­one that can catch that kidI” Gorm­ley said. “ee’s re­ally quickI a re­ally good football player.”

Most of the dam­age took place in the be­gin­ning of the game. Simmons ran for NSV yards and four touch­downs in the open­ing halfI three of WKH sFRUHs FRPLnJ Ln WKH fiUsW quar­ter. By the end of the fiUsW, WKH DUDNHs wHUH GRwn ON-M and the rout was on.

qo its cred­itI Jenk­in­town never gave up. qhe arakes could have eas­ily folded af­ter WKH ELJ fiUsW TuDUWHU, EuW WKHy started off the sec­ond with four-yard touch­down plunge by quar­ter­back qom Kin­niry. qhe score was brought back to within two touch­downs and Jenk­in­town had a life line for the time be­ing.

Simmons and Bris­tol put an end to that be­fore the half­time whis­tle.

Simmons and ay­lan Shamwell each had a rush­ing touch­down each in the sec­ond quar­terI putting Bris­tol up P5-T go­ing into the locker room. Af­ter the open­ing few min­utes of the third TuDUWHU GULSSHG DwDy, D fiHOG goal and S5-yard Simmons touch­down run put the War­riors up 45-T and the mercy rule al­lowed the clock run con­tin­u­ously through the rest of the third and fourth quar­ters.

“ff we played that team NM timesI we would prob­a­bly lose NM timesI” Gorm­ley said. “qhey were big­gerI faster and more phys­i­calI but f’m glad my kids didn’t quit. qhey could have folded it up and called it a day. We’ll get back af­ter it and see what hap­pens go­ing into next week.”

Given the sit­u­a­tionI Kin­niry had a solid game un­der cen­ter. ee had a few nice com­ple­tions throughout the game and rushed for the only Jenk­in­town score early on in the game.

ln the de­fen­sive endI Kin­niry and Michael McKe­man each had a sack. qhe Jenk­in­town de­fense was able to hold off the Bris­tol run some­what to­ward the end of the third and fourth quar­terI but by that time it was too late and the game was al­ready out of hand.
