La Salle spoils senior night for Downingtown
In the opening week for the Ches-Mont League for football, the Downingtown East Cougars lost to La Salle Prep, by a score of 27-7. It was an odd event in an odd year, the only non-league game being played by any Ches-Mont school.
This game wasn’t even scheduled two weeks ago, when the schedule was released. Downingtown East was to play Downingtown West.
Tonight’s 27-7 score was a bit misleading, as it was closer than the score indicated. Downingtown East had a turnover on downs inside La Salle’s five-yard line, and lost a fumble that went in for a touchdown.
For most of tonight’s game, the cougars had no answer for La Salle’s running game, especially Sam Brown, who ran for 97 yards and three scores on 22 carries. Brown added 24 yards on six catches. It was Sam Brown’s three touchdown runs (3, 8, 10 yards) that put the Explorers up 20-0.
A 61-yard touchdown pass from Gavin Daly to Machitta put La Salle up 27-0, before a pass from Jamy Jennings to Nick Lovenguth closed out the scoring.
For La Salle, Gavin Daly threw for 158 yards, Sam Brown ran for 97 yards (121 all purpose). As a team, La Salle ran for 173 yards, and had 331 total.
Stanley Bryant ran for 83 yards, And Josh Asante ran for 68.
