no one was sure what to expect from the visiting Chargers. By game’s end, it didn’t matter as the Eagles completely dominated its way to a 49-0 victory.
On W&L’s first possession, they drove to the Middlesex 8 yard line before fumbling and coming up empty. The Chargers drove to the W&L 45 before the defense, playing without Ryan Taylor (out for the year) and Milan Bullock, came to life and forced a punt.
On the ensuing possession, W&L converted a key fourth down on a Treshaun Brown (11/17, 167 yards, 4 TD, 1 Int) pass to Jarret Sumiel (5 Rec, 102 yards) to keep the drive alive. Three plays later, Brown hit Sumiel again, this time for a 1-yard touchdown.
