Parkland gets caught in Freedom’s “Webb”
Darrius Webb used his speed and wiggle to dominate Parkland. He rushed for a school record 368-yards and 5 TD’s on 19 carries as his Freedom Patriots beat the Trojans 34-14 in Bethlehem.
Webb took the first play of Freedom’s first possession and raced 65-yards for the TD. He followed up with TD runs of 66, 27, 85, and 52-yards respectively.
For the year Webb has 996-yards rushing and 19 total touchdowns. (17 Rushing, 2 on KOR’s). Teams just kick the ball out bounds to keep it away from him. He averages an amazing 71-yards per KOR.
Parkland did all they could running behind their Boston College-bound RB Andre Williams but the night belonged to Webb. Williams rushed for an estimated 145-yards and a 4-yard TD. He did have an 81-yard score called back for holding.
The final score was somewhat not indicative of how the game flowed. Freedom jumped out to a quick 13-0 lead but Parkland kept fighting back. They stayed within 1 touchdown until late in the game. The also missed a 1st quarter FG.
William’s and company consistently moved the ball on the ground but could not punch it in when it counted.
Parkland which had only been 3 for 28 passing all year was able to air it out at times. Their second score was a 21-yard TD pass from Dominic Posocco to Kurt Konis which ended the half at 20-14 Freedom.
Eventually Freedom pulled away on the legs of Webb and upping their record to (4-1). Parkland dropped to (3-2).
Next week (4-1) Freedom takes on (3-2) Northampton while (3-2) Parkland host (0-5) Allen.
