LEHMAN TWP. — The sign in front of the Lake-Lehman student section appropriately read “Lake-Lehman Faithful”.

Somehow, the Black Knight fans stood standing throughout all 83 points, 620 yards and 150 minutes of Lake-Lehman’s 61-22 triumph over Holy Redeemer in its home opener.

“Overall, to have that many points on the board at the end of the first half, you can’t complain about that,” Lake-Lehman coach Jerry Gilsky said. “I mean really we could have run the ball wherever we wanted. It is what it is, guys.”

Lake-Lehman held Holy Redeemer to 14 rushing yards on 24 carries. The Black Knights sacked quarterback Jimmy Strickland five times for 25 yards.

“They took us out of what we wanted to do defensively,” Gilsky said. “Guys are playing different roles.”

Lake-Lehman pounced Holy Redeemer early and often, racking up 20 points within the games first 10 minutes, thanks to a terrific 103-yard, two-touchdown first quarter by running back Joey Vigil. He broke out for 57 yards on a fourth down play to give the Black Knights a 20-0 lead with 2:27 left in the quarter. Vigil finished the game with 140 yards on only six carries.

The Royals struggled on offense in the early going and failed to get past their own 20-yard line before the Black Knights 20-point lead. Charles Ross finally gave the Royals some life when he returned a kick 67 yards to the Lake-Lehman 9 yard line to set up an Eric Kerr receiving touchdown.

The second quarter was dominated by the Black Knights’ 27 points. The quarter was highlighted by two key defensive plays. Pete Borum batted down a fourth down red zone pass, and Josh Winters returned an interception 42 yards for a touchdown.

Brady Butler and Dustin Jones joined Vigil with 100-plus yard rushing games. Butler carried the ball for 120 yards and a touchdown, and Jones ran nine times for 172 yards and two scores.

Holy Redeemer’s Jimmy Strickland went 10-for-23 for 240 yards in the air. Kerr caught five passes for 99 yards, and Jason Hoggarth made an over-the-head catch on a 75-yard touchdown.

Following the game, Gilsky took issues with the Holy Redeemer’s gamesmanship and lack of substitutions late in the game.
