Cougars show no mercy in demolition of Avon Grove

They say to win football games, you need to do two things run the ball, and stop the run. Tonight, Cougars executed that to perfection in a 49-0 thrashing of the Red Devils from Avon Grove, 49-0. The scary part is that the score could have been worse. East could have scored 60 or 70.

Downingtown East had three running backs go over 100 yards (Braden McLane 13-100-1 TD, Josh Asante 15-135-3TDs, and Horvath has 12-124-1TD) in accumulating 383 yards rushing, totaling 511 yards of offense.

Following an Avon Grove punt on their opening drive, Josh Asante opened the scoring on a nine-yard run. A 40-yard pass from Jamy Jenkins to Giordino put the Cougars up 14-0 by the end of the first quarter. Two more Josh Asante runs of three and five yards, expanded the lead to 28-0. Another Jenkins to Giordino drive ensured that the second half would be played under the mercy rule.

Even with the backups in the game, they got into the scoring, with Horvath and McLane scoring touchdowns.

Defensively, Downingtown East only allowed 125 yards of offense, two of which were on the ground. Avon Grove had more punts (7) than first downs (5). Cougar quarterback Jamy Jenkins threw for more yards (128) than the Red Devils had total yards.
