Cougars crush Warriors in league opener
The opening weekend in the Ches-Mont League’s National Division was chock full of blowouts. Tonight’s game between Downingtown East and West Chester Henderson was no different, as the Cougars steamrolled the Warriors, by a 41-7 score.
Downingtown East rolled to 522 yards of offense, and Henderson was held without a first down until 1:30 into the third quarter. Even worse for the Warriors, the fact that they were held to 125 total yards and six first downs.
The Cougars jumped out to a 7-0 lead on their first drive, when Bryce Lauletta hit Spencer Umberger on a four-yard pass. That was added by four more Cougar touchdowns in the second frame. Tim Aivado scored on runs of four and seven yards, a touchdown run of 73 yards by Garvey Johnassaint, and a 67-yard pass from Bryce Lauletta to Steven Long.
The whole second half was played under the mercy rule, but Joe Saulino hit Kavond Jones on a 12-yard pass against the Cougar backups. Reserve tailback Spencer Uggla scored from 12 yards out for the final score.
On the night, Bryce Lauletta threw for 132 yards and two scores. Garvey Johnassaint ran for 150 yards, and Tim Aivado ran for 119 yards and two scores. As a team, the Cougars ran for 378 yards on 44 carries.
