Farrell advances to D10 Double-A Title Game @NWSD_FOOTBALL @peguesAmp @farrellfootball

Written by: on Saturday, October 24th, 2020

 

Anthony Stallworth ran for 243 yards and a touchdown as Farrell knocked off Northwestern 30-10 Saturday afternoon at Albion.

“I thought we played a good game,” said Farrell head coach Anthony Pegues. “I thought the targeting call was bad, outside of that it was a good game.”

The Steelers scored on their opening possession as Jaden Harrison touched the ball for the first time this season and scored on a 14-yard run. Harrison would rush twice for 17 yards on the day.

 

Farrell then recovered a Wildcats fumble on the ensuing kickoff that set up Christian Hartley’s 1-yard touchdown run.

Stallworth then put the Steelers ahead 22-0 as he darted for an 83-yard touchdown early in the second quarter.

“Our offensive line played well, and Stallworth ran had with the field conditions,” said Pegues.”

Northwestern found their footing on the proceeding drive marching downfield and getting on the board on Ryan Tewell’s 1-yard sneak.

 

The Wildcats then went on a 16-play drive to open up the second-half and Preston Runser booted a 30-yard field to cut the deficit to 22-10 with 4:11 to play in the third quarter.

Farrell, however, would answer and put the game away on Hartley’s 4-yard early in the fourth quarter. The Steelers rushed for 327 yards as a team on 42 carriers, and did not throw a pass in the second half.

Ryan Tewell completed 8-of-17 passes for 98 yards to lead Northwestern. Austin Swift added 60 yards rushing on 20 carries.

“Hats off to Farrell for getting the job done,” said Northwestern head coach Mark Brooks. “They are without a doubt an extremely talented team and a well-coached program. I’m proud of how hard our guys played. We made a couple of mistakes early that we’d like to have back.”

The win by Farrell sets up what is sure to be an epic showdown when the Steelers take on Wilmington for the District 10 2A title next weekend. Farrell has been beaten by Wilmington twice this season 41-20, and 21-20. “We wouldn’t have it any other way, but to see Wilmington for the title,” said Pegues.

Northwestern’s season is not over yet as they’ll play again next weekend. “I’m glad in this Covid-19 season, that we still have another game to play. Hopefully, we can end our season with a win,” said Brooks.
