Orange improves to 5-0 for first time since 1999

Junior Diante White ran for 203 yards on just seven carries and scored three touchdowns and Sean Borgman threw two touchdown passes to lead Orange to a 61-26 win at Harvey on Friday.

“Our kids fought through some situational and typical teenage adversity to earn a conference win on the road,” said Orange coach Adam Bechlem. “We have to continue to improve if we are going to continue to win.”

Harvey scored first on a Gil Hammond one-yard run but Borgman ran for a 20-yard score to give the Lions a 7-6 lead. Devon Holbert’s 58-yard touchdown run gave the Red Raiders a short-lived 13-7 lead as the Lions responded with a 38-yard scoring pass from Borgman to Luca Garofoli.

Rick Coleman gave Harvey its last lead with a 12-yard run. The Lions scored the next 34 points to pull away from the Red Raiders.

White scored on runs of 1, 48 and 67 yards and he also returned a kickoff 78 yards for a touchdown. Borgman, who completed 4-of-5 passes, threw a 62-yard touchdown pass to Marvin Davies IV.

Borgman ran for 148 yards and threw for 140 for the Lions. Davies caught two passes for 60 yards and Garofoli finished with 62 yards on the ground.

Holbert ran for 118 yards on nine carries for the Red Raiders while Hammond finished with 98 on 20 carries.

Orange, who improved to 5-0 for the first time since 1999, hosts Chagrin Falls on Friday.
