Written by: Billy Splain on Saturday, September 19th, 2015
At Farrell on Friday night it was a battle of (2-0) West Middlesex and (2-0) Farrell. However there wasn’t much of a contest as the Steelers rolled past the Big Rids 42-0. Farrell’s size, speed, and strength were too much for West Middlesex to handle. They Outgained the Reds in total yards 446-24. There was no answer all night for the explosive offense that the Steelers displayed.
On the initial play from scrimmage Josh Porterfield sacked Farrell QB Alex Myers and it seemed like the Red’s were picking up where they left off. Until the next play when Myers found receiver Marcus McCoy over the middle for a 70 yard scoring strike. From that point on the Steelers didn’t look back. Middlesex fumbled on their first touch of the game and again the Steelers took the next play into the end zone this time by Braxton Champman from 15 yards out.
Farrell punched it in two more times before the half highlighted by 29 yard run and a 29 yard pass by Tyrel Adkins and from Myers to Adkins. This made the count 26-0 at the half. Farrell came out of the half not missing a beat as they scored twice more on a 3 yard Newell run and an 8 yard Champman run. The Steelers defense stifled the Big Reds passing attack. They lived in the Middlesex backfield the entire night.
Farrell is a team to watch that can go very far this year. Their team speed is fun to watch and they do a great job of getting their athletes the ball in space. Champman led the Steelers with 17 carries for 158 yards and 2 touchdowns. Adkins had 6 carries for 48 yards and a TD along with 2 catches for 46 yards and a TD. Farrell QB Alex Myers had an impressive night also as he eclipsed the 2,000 yard career passing milestone. He was 8-15 for 189 yards and 2 TD’s and ran 9 times for 43 yards. McCoy led the Steelers in receiving with 97 yards on 2 catches.
Another note to make the Steelers Malachi Newell and Braxton Champman have been invited to officially visit Penn State University and watch the game on the sidelines today.
