Sophomore Eagles Clinch Division Title, Freshmen and Junior Teams Win
WD sophomore Eagles clinched the National Division title with a shutout win this past weekend. The freshmen team can clinch their division with a win in the final two games.
The West Deptford sophomore Eagles clinched their regular season division title on Saturday at RiverWinds Park, while the freshmen and junior teams got one step closer to clinching their own, as all three teams defeated Pennsville.
The freshmen Eagles kicked off the day with a 26-0 shutout. Lawrence Howard ran for 101 yards and two touchdowns, while Saleem Washington added two touchdowns of his own as the Eagles did a good job of controlling the ball on the ground.
On defense, Pennsville was stifled all afternoon by West Deptford. Washington, Trevor Lundfelt, Jamar Wallace and Jordyn Roane combined for 18 tackles in helping the Eagles earn their second shutout of the season.
The sophomore Eagles followed up the freshmen with a shutout of their own, blowing out Pennsville 36-0 to clinch first place in the National Division. The junior team won as well, 24-6, to stay tied for first place in their division. The seniors were defeated 42-6.
Next week, the Eagles will host division-rival Gibbstown with another division title potentially on the line. The freshmen Eagles can clinch their division with a win plus a Gloucester Township loss to Woodstown on Saturday.
