The Bulldogs’ defense did its part, holding Chelsea to just 108 yards rushing. The Red Devils were shut out in the second half and had to play without its feature tailback, Jose Martinez, which made things “a little easier” according to Worth.
“Overall we made some great defensive changes at halftime,” Worth added. “We were able to shut them out in the second half. They had us confused with that spread set that they came out with, and we just had to adjust to that.”
Bulldogs quarterback Ian LaFavour was able to spread the ball around with eight handoffs to Michael Nuernberg (52 yards) and ran for 10 yards on two carries himself.
North Shore Tech had only one fumble in the game, which Chelsea capitalized on and scored on the following drive.
Senior captain Yordany Sanchez didn’t play after getting injured in last week’s Bishop Fenwick matchup, but could be a go this Saturady night (7 p.m.) against Lynn Tech.
