Nanticoke 0

Lehman linebacker Frank Kutz pounced on a fumble there and six plays later, Jake Tomolonis busted through the gut of the Nanticoke defense for a 19-yard touchdown.

Lehman defensive back Vincenzo Ferrari recorded the other turnover, plucking a Nanticoke pass over his head and returning the interception down the left sideline 30 yards to the Nanticoke 4 late in the second quarter. Running back Charlie Kuschke ran in from there on the next play to make it 27-0.

Between those two touchdowns, Lehman forced a couple of punts and pieced together scoring drives of six and 10 plays. Fullback Matt Kurtz bulled in from 4 yards with seven ticks left in the first quarter to complete the six-play possession. Kuschke bounced a run outside, picking up a block from receiver Noah Gorski, to score from 24 yards away to end the 10-play drive at 6:28 of the second quarter.

Lehman put the 35-point mercy rule into effect on its first possession of the third quarter as running back Zach Kojadinovich scored on a 1-yard run and Kuschke ran in for the two-point conversion.
