Webb’s 47 first-half points add up to 7-0

Webb took the next step in its quest to repeat as Division II-A state champions Friday night, Oct. 8, as the Spartans rolled over Mt. Juliet Christian Academy 47-0 at Faust Field.

The Spartans (7-0, 3-0) were without junior tailback Caleb Blance after a slight tear in his MCL sidelined him two weeks ago against Lancaster Christian.

You would hardly know there was any void in Webb’s offense, though, as the first play from scrimmage was a 47-yard touchdown pass from Parker Wormsley to Brennan Liu. The ball was tipped four times before Liu came down with his fourth receiving score of the year.

Liu later joked that the ball “got tipped two or three times, and I ended up with it. Parker told me we were running that play first, but I didn’t know it would be so hard to catch the ball.”

Liu’s securing of the football seemed to be Webb’s only struggle of the night.

After Webb forced a three-and-out, Mt. Juliet’s punt fell in the hands of Aaron Blance, who promptly took the ball 60 yards for a touchdown.

The next Saint possession would end similarly, and although they kicked away from Blance on the punt, Webb’s second play from scrimmage found Blance sprinting 57 yards down the sideline to put Webb up 21-0.

“We had to come out and show them what we can do, and the early touchdowns did the job,” Liu said.

Bryan Berube, Jim Dolinak, and Robby Strachan all would rush for touchdowns as Webb continued it offensive dominance.

Defensively, the Spartans held Mt. Juliet to just two first downs in the first half.

“Our defense set the tone for our offense and allowed them to stay on the field and score,” junior linebacker Brewer Congleton said.

Webb’s defense, though, created some offense of its own when Jackson Greaves forced a fumble that Chase Carter took back for a 45-yard touchdown.

By the half the Spartans lead 47-0.

“Even though we knew this would be an easier game, we had to focus from play one so we could get the job done,” Liu said.

Webb travels to Mt. Zion Christian Academy to take on the 3-3 Eagles Friday, Oct. 15, in Columbia.
