Spartans stay perfect after high-scoring trip to Lancaster

SMYRNA — The Webb Spartans defeated Lancaster Christian Academy soundly Friday night, but paid the price dearly for the trip Friday, Oct. 1.

Mid-way through the first quarter, junior running back Caleb Blance limped off the field with a knee injury and would not return. “It's good. I'm not putting pressure on it, but can bend it and move it without pain now,” said Blance, who has an MRI scheduled for Monday.

The rest of the Spartans crew hardly missed a beat with Blance's absence, though, in a 48-16 romp, improving to 6-0 overall, 2-0 in Division II-A.

Aaron Blance put Webb ahead 7-3 by the end of the first quarter.

Senior quarterback Parker Wormsely scrambled for an 18-yard touchdown score and followed with 25-yard and 45-yard touchdown passes to Neil Butler.

With 1:07 left in the second quarter, Jim Dolinak scored filled Blance's void and got across the goal-line to give Webb a 35-9 advantage at the half. “When Caleb went down I knew I had an opportunity to step up. Bryan [Berube] and I had to take over his position and step it up,” Dolinak said.

Robby Strachn and Dolinak would both run for touchdowns in the second half, including Dolinak's second of the night.

“My line was blocking all over for me,” Dolinak said.

That line, however, was missing its anchor, Jay Werner, for most of the game, as he left with a hyper-extended elbow. With wide receiver David Wilhoite also out with an injury, he said, “We might be down a few guys for next week, but we'll be fine. We need guys to step up and we'll be good.”

Webb hosts Mount Juliet Christian Academy at Faust Field, Friday Oct. 8, looking to extent its two-season win streak to 11. Opening kickoff is 7 p.m.
