Erie Royals Rout General McLane

Written by: on Monday, September 11th, 2017

After a tough 38 to 0 loss to Cathedral Prep the Erie Royals knew they had to make a statement and bounce back in a major way. They did that on Saturday by decimating the Lancers of General McLane 56 to 6.

The Lancers, a perennial power in the Erie area, are known for their high powered, Flexbone, triple option offense. The Royals were able to dominate the line of scrimmage and hold the Lancers to just 122 yards on 44 rushes. GM QB Jack Parker led the way for them with 64 yards on 18 carries.

The Royals are also known for their powerful rushing attack. The single-wing, “sweep till they weep” Royals offense racked up 424 yards on just 34 carries. Junior running back JaGannon Williams helped the Royals dash out to a 14 to 0 lead early with two long touchdown runs (27 and 26 yards).

Royals QB Jason Williams powered in from 6 yards out and then connected to WR Caleb Houston on a wide-open play-action strike for a 36-yard touchdown.

The Royals put the pedal to the metal and cranked out three more touchdowns in the second quarter to increase their lead to 49 to 6 at halftime. JaGannon Williams and Tony Foster burst untouched for touchdown runs of 50 and 79 yards. Both touchdown runs came on a Coach Matz staple, buck sweep.

Williams would lead all rushers with 170 yards on ten carries with three touchdowns. Another testament to the Royals youth, junior Tony Foster had 86 yards on four carries and sophomore Danny Blue had 57 yards on two carries.

The Royals defensive line led by a 6’4, senior defensive end Jamar Hudson dominated the line of scrimmage throughout the whole game. Senior linebacker Keshawn Goudy also was a major force on defense.

Junior defensive back Barry Thompson snagged two interceptions while locking down division one prospect Nassir Singleton throughout the game. Thompson’s interception total is now up to 4 so far, this season.

Singleton was held to just 4 yards rushing, and 59 receiving. Singleton and the Lancers look to bounce back against Union City next week. The Royals will look to keep their momentum rolling as they take on undefeated Fort LeBoeuf High School.
