For the second straight week, the Coatesville Red Raiders hosted one of the Downingtown schools. Coatesville beat a Downingtown school for the second straight week, downing the Cougars of Downingtown East, 20-14.

It was a tale of two halves, as the Red Raiders established a 14-0 halftime lead on a short run by Ashon Wesley, and a 21-yard pass from Harrison Susi to Abdul-Sabur Stewart on the last play of the half.

Coatesville extended their lead to 20-0 on a Harrison Susi quarterback sneak. Downingtown East got on the scoreboard when Josh Asante scored on a 14-yard run. After the teams traded turnovers, Jamy Jenkins hit Giordino from 16 yards out to close out the scoring.

Jamy Jennings could not establish any consistency with the Cougar passing game (10-28, 147 yards, 1 TD & 2 ints), but showed flashes of a solid future. Tailback Josh Asante had 21 carries for 111 yards.

For Coatesville, Harrison Susi threw for 160 yards (17-24), 10 of them to Abdul Sabur Stewart (100 yards).

After the game, Matt Ortega said,  “We (Coatesville) had some self inflicted mistakes. We did a good job shutting down the run, and make them pass.”

Mike Matt said, “This was a hard loss. They could have given in at 20-0, but they didn’t. They bought in to the program.”
