North Shore Tech handles Cape Cod, moves to 4-0

(Continued)

“We talk about jet sweep all week but (you don’t understand) until you see it run live and that makes it difficult to stop,” said Cape Cod Tech (0-3) coach Chris Leonard, whose team had under 30 players dressed on the sideline Saturday. “We figured it out (before the second half) and we started to stop it but by that time it was 30-0 and it didn’t really matter anymore.”

Murphy was North Shore’s leading rusher with 63 yards on 14 carries while Chris Sudak finished with 45 yards on just five carries. After early his success on conversions, Murphy walked into the end zone from two yards out on a toss on the last play of the first quarter.

“(Cape Cod is) very young and I don’t think we played with much passion today we were just more athletic, stronger and able to exert our will on them early on,” said Worth.

A big part of that physicality was winning the battle up front, which the Bulldogs took in a landslide. Ronnie Williams (center), Denzel Birth (guard) and John Sabbio (guard) executed in the trap game while tackles Eric Comeau and Chris Girard consistently put good blocks on the linebackers.

Fullback Tyler Skane (seven rushes, 37 yards) continues to show strong vision and ability to fight through tackles as the senior added a seven yard touchdown run before the half.

“Let’s give the O-line a little credit too. They are trap blocking very well and allowing Skane to get all those yards,” said Worth. “Both our tackles were able to get to the linebackers. That offensive line is starting to do a nice job and only playing one way. All five of them as a group.”

Anderson found paydirt for the second time in the afternoon in the third quarter on a two yard run. Jazmanny Sanchez also had an interception at the end of the first half when he defended a fade pass to perfection showing the speed to stay with his man and the instincts to turn, find the ball and bring it down in the Bulldogs’ end zone.
