West Rowan Middle defeats Corriher-Lipe, 46-14
Bulldogs roll behind running game
SALISBURY — West Rowan rolled past Corriher-Lipe, 46-14, last Wednesday in middle school football.
The game was a battle of Corriher-Lipe’s air attack and the Bulldogs’ running attack. The rushing offense prevailed, as West improved to 3-0.
Six West runners combined for 355 yards, led by Marquise Howell, who rushed for 95. He also had a 55-yard punt return for a touchdown.
Charlee Williamson followed with 78 yards on the ground. He also recovered two fumbles, one which he returned 30 yards for a score.
Steady Aubrie Robinson rushed for 54 yards and two 2-point conversions. Kontrell Knox picked up 52 yards on the ground, a TD and two 2-pointers. Kamron White followed with 47 yards and eight points, while Jose Hernandez ran for 29 yards and two TDs. Hernandez was also credited with outstanding special teams’ play.
Paving the way for those runners was a West offensive line that was led by center Blake Rogers.
The Bulldogs’ defense was sparked by Tyrin Little with seven tackles and White, who had six stops.
Corriher-Lipe quarterback Landon Richards was elusive on the ground and through the air — firing a touchdown pass to Dalton Young.
Marshall Faw also scored for the Yellow Jackets, and leading the defense was Mason Kincaid.
West Rowan hosts the North Rowan Mavericks today at 4 o’clock.
