YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The Chaney defense put on a show Friday night in a dominant 36-0 victory over Howland.
Chaney got on the board first with a 60 yard touchdown run by Key-Shaun Davis. After a blocked extra point attempt the Cowboys took a 6-0 lead with 6:13 remaining in the opening quarter. The score was set up by a fumble recovery on defense by Anthony West.
Davis scored again early in the second quarter, this time from 28 yards out. A two-point conversion attempt was no good, giving the Cowboys a 12-0 lead. The Chaney defense set up this score as well after forcing a turnover on downs on the previous Tigers’ possession.
Chaney’s third touchdown again came on the back of a strong defensive play, a fumble recovery by Davis. That set up a 55 yard touchdown run by Marshall Herron. With 6:01 left in the first half, the Cowboys led 18-0 after another failed pat.
Delshawn Petrosky connected with Deron Gilbert for a 21 yard touchdown pass with 1:31 remaining in the second. After a fourth unsuccessful attempt at extra points, the Cowboys led 24-0.
Miguel Burgess scored from 12 yards out with 2:40 left in the third quarter to extend the lead again to 30-0. The score was set up by another strong defensive play, an interception by Malcolm Lambert.
After yet another defensive stand which saw Howland run four plays inside the 3-yard line without scoring, Chaney scored on the very next play with Marshall Herron rumbling 98 yards for a touchdown. Chaney led 36-0.
