Webb 10-0 with rout

NASHVILLE — The last time a Webb football team had an undefeated regular season was 1968.

Friday, Oct 29, though, the Spartans did something that has not been done in 42 years in capping off a 10-0 regular season.

Celebration was not the only emotion that Spartans fans enjoyed; in fact, they were unsettled for the first quarter in a back-and-forth battle.

After an impressive Donelson Christian Academy drive capped off by a 2-yard touchdown run by L.J. Dismuke, the Wildcats had a 7-0 advantage.

Webb (6-0 in Division II-A) answered quickly as Aaron Blance sprinted 39 yards for the pylon.

However, DCA's Collin Johnston took the ensuing kickoff 85 yards down the heart of the field to regain the lead.

The Spartans again responded with a seven-play, 71--yard drive capped off by Parker Wormsley's quick throw to Bryan Berube in the back of the end zone.

From then on the Spartans offense dominated the game, including the reemergence of the Blance brothers in the backfield.

In his first game back from an injury sidelining him three weeks, Caleb Blance accrued 117 yards on 12 carries and one touchdown.

A nice compliment to his older brother, Aaron had three more touchdowns and 186 yards of his own as Webb amassed 455 yards of total offense.

Webb’s defense was not too shabby either, intercepting DCA quarterback Kyle Kennedy twice before the end of the second quarter, and not allowing any more points to be scored after midway through the first quarter.

The second half proved to be more of the same for Webb as Wormsley hit Brennan Liu for a 48-yard pitch and catch, and Aaron Blance found the goal line one more time to extend the lead to the final score of 42-14.

The seniors traveled to a road game for the final time in a Spartans jersey, but Liu declares it's a good way to go out.

“There was definitely more hype around this game. Not only to keep an undefeated season, but to also make history,” he said.

Wormsley, playing in his final regular season game as a four-year starting quarterback, finished with 152 yards passing and two touchdowns.

“We have worked so hard throughout the off season and during the season that to go undefeated in the regular season is great, be we aren't done yet,” he said. “We just have to keep working hard and getting better every week, We just need to come in and practice hard and get better.

“We are going to play some good teams in the playoffs and in order to get back to the championship, we need to improve.”
