Green Hornets Derail the Zephyrs

Emmaus and Whitehall faced off in a week three matchup at Whitehall with the Hornets 1-1 and Whitehall 0-2.

Sanders was wide open and he walked in for a TD. 7-0 Emmaus.

Whitehall’s Ali Barkley also looked good, but it would take a few drives for him to settle in. Emmaus got the ball back and moved it down for a touchdown. Jared Groller got his second career varsity touchdown and it was now 14-0.

Ali Barkley would show up on the next drive for the Zephyrs as he took it to the house. The score was 14-7 now and Whitehall was looking to make it a game.

Emmaus just wouldn’t let that happen. Jake Moyer proved himself as he and the Hornets marched down the field. Jameel Sanders again finished the drive off with a TD. The score was 21-7 now and Whitehall’s offense was not able to connect on any plays. Emmaus took over again and marched down for a Brandon Camire TD.

Late second quarter, Ali Barkley went 83 yards and score. Now the score was 28-14. Emmaus got the ball back and Brandon Camire blew by everyone. He walked into the end zone barely touched. The score was 35-14 Emmaus. Whitehall would go three and out and punt.

Brandon Camire on the next drive went to the house again. It was a 42-14 the halftime score. Emmaus received the second half kickoff. Jake Moyer connected with Chad Newhard for a Hornet TD, 49-14 Emmaus.

The mercy rule went into effect. Whitehall would add a touchdown with 1:32 seconds left. 49-21.

Emmaus went back out in victory formation, took a kneel down and rushed the field to celebrate win number two out of three.

For the Zephyrs they still are searching for win number one. They would fall to 0-3. They take on Central Catholic next Friday. Emmaus will host Pleasant Valley next Friday and they look to take momentum into week four.
