In the Ches Mont opener for both schools, Downingtown East rode 30, second-quarter points to the mercy rule of the Bishop Shanahan Eagles, 37-0.

Shanahan was competitive in the first quarter.  The lack of depth and the physicality up front wore them out.

Ayden Harris scored the only touchdown in the first quarter. The 30-point, second-quarter deluge began on a 52-yard pass from Helverson to Mike Brown to make it 13-0. A 36-yard run from Ayden Harris made it 20-0. A 28-yard pass from Helverson to Brown made it 27-0. Another Harris run and a 23-yard Field Goal made it 37-0.

Shanahan coach Paul Meyers said what Matta did was class (by taking a knee at the end when they could have scored).
