Golden Knights golden in clobbering Cougars
Tonight was supposed to be a battle of two of the better teams in the Ches Mont League, in a crossover game between the Golden Knights of Rustin High School and Downingtown East. The keywords were ‘supposed to be’, as the Golden Knights crushed the Cougars, by a score of 32-13.
Rustin got off to a fast 13-0 lead, by going away from their vaunted Wing-T. Jon Crispino hit Tucker Flynn on a 65-yard screen pass, then hit Dayshawn Jacobs on an 18-yard pass. The only two passes Crispino completed went for touchdowns. Before exiting the game (collarbone), Flynn had 133 total yards. Dayshawn Jacobs ran for 216 of Rustin’s 363 yards on the ground.
Rustin’s lead went to 20-0, on an eight-yard run by Dayshawn Jacobs. Josh Asante got the Cougars on the board before halftime on a four-yard run.
Rustin expanded its lead to 26-6 on a Crispino two-yard run. The Cougars answered on a 30-yard pass from Jamy Jenkins to Nick Lovenguth. Crispino closed out the scoring on a two-yard run.
Jamy Jenkins threw for 193 yards for Downingtown East, and Josh Asante ran for 85 yards. Rustin rolled 446 total yards.
After the game, an emotional Rustin coach Mike Saint Clair told his team, “This is the result of hard work, and believing in yourself.” This was one of the biggest wins for this program. The defense came up big and made stops. In the years of covering high school football, Mike St. Clair is one of the good guys you will encounter.
East coach Mike Matt’s said, “Rustin played well, did all the little things well, and was more physical than us.” Mike Matta is another one of the good coaches you will come across.
