Easton’s “D” shuts down Parkland 14-3
The Easton Red Rover’s defense held Parkland without a first down for nearly 3 quarters. The last was on the first drive of the 2nd quarter in route to a 14-3 win. Parkland could not get anything going especially in the 2nd half and did not complete a pass the whole game.
Tonight Easton avenged last years 26-0 shut out with stellar defensive line play led by DT David Caldwell, inspiring running by Quran Hughes, and overall enthusiastic play.
As most predicted this would be a grind it out, low scoring, hard fought game. Well that prediction came true as both teams had numerous “turnover on downs” series.
After an Easton turnover (INT) on the first play of the game, each team holding the other to “turnover on downs”, it was Parkland who was on the scoreboard first kicking a 22-yard FG on 4th and 5-yards.
Midway through the 1st it was Jashaad Gaddy who picked off Parkland’s Dominic Posocco in a tip drill and returned it 32-yards for the score changing momentum for the game. Easton 7-3.
The game would stay 7-3 until the 4th quarter when Quran Hughes finished off a 65-yard 8-play drive ending in him taking a quick trap7-yards for the score. Easton 14-3.
Easton dominated the running game with 198-yards on the night while Hughes rushed 16 times for 122-yards and 1 score.
Next week (3-0) Easton takes on (1-2) Emmaus and (2-1) Parkland faces (3-0) Nazareth.
