Knights hammer Indians, 41-20
Tonight, the Golden Knights of Rustin High School made another huge statement and cleared the final major hurdle on their side of the Ches Mont League, when they hammered the Unionville Indians, 41-20.
It was a night that Rustin could do little wrong- no turnovers, one three and punt, one punt, and 1 penalty. Offensively, the Knights churned out 20 first downs en route to 416 yards.
Rustin was able to score three touchdowns on three first half possessions- first on a 14 play drive that bled 8:04 off the clock right away, capped off by Evan Wlock’s 1 yard sneak. Following a Unionville 3 and punt, Terry Loper got into the action from 7 yards out. Rustin’s lead hit 21-0, when Wlock hit Mike McKnight on an 82 yard pass.
Unionville finally got on the scoreboard before the half, when Alex Pechin scored from 3 yards out.
In the second half, it was more of the same. Rustin would give the Indians a steady dose of Terry Loper (33 carries, 236 yards, 3 tds), who had 125 yards in the second half.
Unionville keyed on Loper so often, that Wlock hit Andrew Chobany on a 29 yard pass, to make it a 28-7 lead. Chobany was so wide open on the play, he could have read War and Peace on his way in.
The teams traded touchdowns from here. Pechin hit Brandon Boon from 29 yards out to make it 28-14, Terry Loper scored his second touchdown to put Rustin’s lead back to 21 on a 13 yard run. Austin Hoffmann-Reardon scored on a 1 yard run, and Loper scored on a 5 yard run at the end.
Tonight for Unionville, Alex Pechin threw for 235 yards and a score. Brandon Boon had 117 yards receiving (5 catches), and Élan Nash had 81 yards (6 catches).
Terry Loper had 33 carries, 236 yards and 3 scores. Evan Wlock threw for 117 yards and two scores on 3-4 passing.
After the game Mike St. Clair spoke well of Unionville “they’re a sound team, who are well coached. We put in a good week of practice.”
