on Green Street
Oct 26, 2019
CUMBERLAND — Carson Snyder scored four touchdowns and Brevan Stubbs accounted for three as Fort Hill cruised to 57-6 victory over Green Street Academy Friday night at Greenway Avenue Stadium.
Snyder scored three rushing touchdowns and one defensively.
Stubbs’ scored rushing and receiving and the tossed a touchdown pass to Paxton Wertz.
“I’m proud of the kids,” said Fort Hill head coach Todd Appel. “Now we’re off to Homecoming.”
As expected, Fort Hill dominated the game by taking advantage of a short field for most of the first half, the yardage stills favor the Sentinels, but not by the wide margins seen in the past couple games because of Green Street’s short punts and four turnovers, all in the Chargers’ territory.
The longest of the Sentinels’ first quarter scoring drives traveled 52 yards and it was capped off by Snyder’s first touchdown from the three.
Stubbs scored three minutes later on a 17-yard run to finish a two-play, 32-yard drive.
With 1:19 to go in the first quarter, Snyder ran it in from the seven ending a four-play drive that started at midfield.
If there was any doubt, Fort Hill erased it with a 36-point second quarter, as the Sentinels scored on a 17-yard pass from Danny King to Stubbs, a three-yard run by Snyder and a five-yard fumble recovery return by Snyder 20 seconds after his rushing TD.
Then with Stubbs at quarterback, he found Paxton Wertz on a 12-yard pass and Blake White closed it out on a five-yard run.
“It was a pretty good night,” Appel said. “We got to show some things. I think we can be pretty diverse offensively, we’ve just got to get better defensively.”
Green Street Academy (4-4) had the only score of the running clock second half on an 86-yard run in the fourth quarter. The two-point conversion pass was incomplete.
At the end of the first half, Fort Hill had 271 total yards with 187 rushing and 84 passing. Green Street was held to 25 yards.
The Sentinels finished with 321 yards overall, 237 rushing and the 84 yards passing. Green Street finished with 171 with 86 coming on one play.
King, Stubbs and Daniel Stuby were 5 of 6 passing for 84 yards and the two touchdowns.
Snyder led the Sentinels with 53 yards, Stubbs had 42 and King 30.
Fort Hill (7-1) hosts Allegany on Saturday, 12:30 p.m., for Homecoming at Greenway Avenue Stadium.
