Emmaus Shuts Out Easton 21-0
Emmaus (4-0) ends drought by shutting out Easton (2-2) 21-0 Friday night. The Green Hornets have not beaten the Red Rovers since 1981 or 27 years.
Easton coming off a 26-0 shutout loss to Parkland the week before had to play without its main offensive and defensive threat in Kyle Harbridge. Easton also tried to get a spark by starting Sophomore QB Justin Pacchiolo.
Emmaus fresh of its win over Freedom last week did not miss a beat and proved they are a contender to win the LVC title. They are one of two teams still undefeated in the LVC along with Northampton.
The Emmaus defense has not surrendered an offensive point through 4 games.
Easton started the game with turnover after turnover. In fact, on their first 3 possessions they had an INT, fumble, and another INT.
On the Green Hornet’s first series they faced a 4th + 1 but a false start penalty forced them to try for a FG which was missed.
Their very next series they made sure that they would get the ball into the endzone with a beautiful Frank Wisely WR Screen play followed by a C.J. Billera 1-yard TD run.
After a few punts from each team the half would end 7-0 in favor of Emmaus.
The second half was just as bad as the first for Easton as they punted the ball away every series except the last.
In the 4th Quarter Matt Johnson connected with Wisely again on the same exact WR screen for big yards. Billera then bounced the run outside hitting paydirt from 24-yards out.
To finish the game off it was Wisely who continued to make the big play this time returning a punt 40-yards for the TD.
Easton made a late push to score but Emmaus held with the final being 21-0.
Billera has 20 carries for 114-yards and 2 TD’s. Wisely had 8 catches for 96 yards and a 40-yard punt return for a TD.
Next week Emmaus takes on fellow undefeated Northampton (4-0) who was a 20-0 winner over Whitehall. The winner of this game will stand alone as the only undefeated team in the LVC.
Easton plays Allen.
