West Lincoln
East Rutherford slipped past West Lincoln 18-12 on Thursday.
The Rebels came out firing as quarterback Jake Watts connected with Peydon Houser on an 80-yard touchdown pass on the opening play. The conversion failed.
East Rutherford scored late in the first quarter to make it 6-6. The Cavaliers scored again just before the half bringing the score to 12-6 as the teams hit the dressing room.
In the third, Watts hooked up with Houser again for a 40-yard touchdown to tie the game at 12.
With about six minutes left, East Rutherford cashed in from 40 yards making the score 18-12.
On the Rebels’ final possession, the Cavs’ got pressure on Watts and West Lincoln was unable to move the football.
Watts finished the game with 150 yards passing.
Rebels’ head coach Gene Scronce believed the game came down to lack of execution in the finer points of the game.
“Offensively and defensively we played well, but penalties and turnovers hurt us the whole game. We didn’t do the little things well and it came back to bite us.”
The Rebels conclude their season next week at home against Chase. Their record is now 3-5.
