Perry rolls to win over Orange

PERRY—Jaylen Anderson scored three touchdowns and Jacob Allen added two to lead Perry to a 49-7 win over visiting Orange in a key Chagrin Valley Conference Chagrin Division showdown on Friday.

With the win, the Pirates improved to 7-0 overall and 4-0 in league play.

“It was a big football game for the conference,” said Perry coach Matt Rosati. “We wanted to be real physical and I thought our guys did a great job of that. We were very physical and very fast and I think it was too much for Orange to keep up tonight.”

Allen opened the scoring with an eight-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Drew Schiano. Anderson’s seven-yard touchdown run gave the Pirates a 13-0 lead and Jake Reid caught a five-yard touchdown pass and Schiano and Anderson connected on the two-point conversion to push the Perry lead to 21-0 in the first quarter.

The Pirates added touchdowns runs from Allen and Anderson in the second quarter to push the halftime lead to 35-0.

Diante White ran for a six-yard touchdown in the third quarter for Orange’s only score.

Anderson, who finished with 118 yards on 13 carries, added a 56-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter and Kyle Davanaugh closed out the scoring when he recovered an Orange fumble in the end zone.

“We expect to be in the playoffs,” Rosati said of the intensity his team has played with through eight weeks. “It was really nothing new for us. It was a big football game for the conference. We knew we needed to come out and play well and I thought we did.”

Perry racked up 410 yards of offense while limiting Orange to just 99.

Allen carried seven times for 74 yards and Schiano completed 10-of-14 passes for 122 yards and two touchdowns.

White finished with 39 yards on the ground for the Lions while Sean Borgman completed 7-of-11 passes for 70 yards.

“Anytime you get beat like this it’s a humbling experience and that just makes you work harder the next week. That’s always our mentality for the next week,” Borgman said. “We just have to execute better. We didn’t play as well as we could have because of simple mistakes that can be easily corrected for next week.”

Perry travels to Geneva on Friday while Orange hosts West Geauga.
