Balanced Effort Leads First-Place Mustangs to 55-22 Win at FDU-Florham
MADISON, N.J. - Led by 158 yards rushing and a school record four touchdowns from freshman Trey Lee (Lusby, Md./Patuxent), the Stevenson football team amassed 462 yards of total offense, including 300 yards rushing while scoring a school record 55 points in remaining unbeaten with a 55-22 victory at FDU-Florham Friday night at Robert T. Shields Field.
Stevenson (3-0, 2-0 MAC), who is off to the best start to a season in the school's brief history, has now won four-straight overall dating back to last year's season finale, a 28-13 victory over the Devils.
Lee tied the mark of four rushing touchdowns set by K.K. Smith against Wilkes last season. He also joins Smith as the only two players in school history to rush for over 100 yards twice in the same season.
Lee got his record-setting night started with a 48-yard touchdown run in the second quarter to put the Mustangs up 21-13. He added touchdown runs of 1, 2 and 4 yards, the last of which came with 11:08 remaining in the fourth quarter to give Stevenson a commanding 49-22 advantage.
Meanwhile, sophomore John Gasparovic (Middletown, Del./Appoquinimink), who completed 11-of-17 passes for 155 yards and two touchdowns, started the game 5-for-5 with both touchdown passes coming to sophomore Chris Cooper (Forest Hill, Md./Fallston) in the first quarter.
Not to be overlooked was the play of the Mustang defense who forced three turnovers, totaled three sacks and held FDU-Florham to just 115 yards in the second half. In the third quarter, sophomore Billy Lewis (Centreville, Md./Queen Anne's) returned a fumble 45 yards for a touchdown, marking the second-straight week that Stevenson has registered a defensive touchdown.
Junior Tim Campbell (Millersville, Md./McDonogh) finished with a team-high nine tackles, one forced fumble and one pass break-up. Junior Donnell Brown (Baltimore, Md./Poly) added six tackles while sophomore Razonte Dunn (Bryans Road, Md./Lackey) had five tackles. Both finished with half-a-sack.
Craig Kimbrough led the Devils (1-1, 0-1 MAC) with 137 yards rushing. Michael Santos threw for 215 yards and one score.
Stevenson travels to Delaware Valley next Saturday. Game time is at 1:00 p.m.
