William Penn opened up its season with a revenge victory over Caesar Rodney having lost to them late last season. Penn jumped out to an early 22-0 lead which proved to be too much for the Riders to make up. The Riders did make a comeback, but the Colonials were able to hold off the Riders to come away with the 34-27 victory.
William Penn Rayan White-Taylor stole the show in this game accounting for three touchdowns to lead the offense. White-Taylor scored his first touchdown on a 70 yard touchdown run that got the scoring started. He then added an 87 yard kickoff return that answered right back after a Caesar Rodney score. He then put the game away with his third touchdown that proved to be the game winner when quarterback Josiah Everett hit him in stride for a 56 yard touchdown pass.
Everett, just a freshman, had a great game for the Colonials. While we weren’t able to get his total yardage he threw two touchdowns to go with no interceptions. His other touchdown pass hit Mark Moore across the middle in stride again as Moore walked in the endzone.
Caesar Rodney took a little bit to get started, but when they did it was behind the arm of their star quarterback Junior Julius Timmons. Timmons threw for three touchdowns in the game to lead the Riders offense.
Timmons connected with sophomore wideout Maxwell Viddy for two of those scores. The first was on a 57 yard touchdown pass that Viddy turned back to snag the ball from a colonial defender. The second touchdown he hit Viddy on a screen pass, then Viddy made a ankle breaking move that will be on top plays this week that went 28 yards.
His final touchdown came late in the game when he hit Aiden Cain on the flat as Cain turned up the field, breaking through two would-be tacklers into the endzone from 10 yards out. Cain also had another phenomenal catch that will also be a top play nominee for next week’s Delaware Live Weekly show.
