Bayard Rustin Pounds Upper Perk 46-0. Rematch with Pottsgrove Up Next
Sometimes game stats don’t often tell the story of the game.
Saturday afternoon game stats DID tell the story of the game.
18 first downs, 330 yards rushing, 462 yards total offense, five different players scoring touchdowns and holding the opposition to 38 total yards as Bayard Rustin opened defense of its District One AAA Football Championship with a 46-0 domination of Upper Perkiomen at Rustin Stadium Saturday afternoon.
“This was a tough game,” said Rustin Head coach Mike St. Clair. “They came in here with a good game plan and they were tough up front, but we were able to make a couple of big plays and things just went from there.”
Big plays were made in bunches, both offensively and defensively.
Rondell White (19 carries 162 yards) scored on runs of 22, 47 and 47 yards while brother Rahmier (nine carries 55 yards) scored on a six yard run, fullback Andrew Mc Greevy scored on a 39 yard run and even reserve running back DeVante Dixon scored on a 19 yard run. Lee Kurfis caught a 64 yard touchdown pass from Mike Carlin.
On defense, they intercepted three Casey Perlstein passes and played almost the entire game in the Indian backfield as Upper Perk (7-4) never got into positive yardage until early in the fourth quarter.
With the win, Rustin now advances to play top seeded Pottsgrove next Friday nite at Pottsgrove. The Golden Knights defeated the Falcons in this round last year. Upper Perkiomen has rival Boyertown on Thanksgiving Morning.
“We’ll enjoy this one today and hit the blackboard tomorrow,” said St. Clair when asked about the rematch.
