It was a Centennial Conference opener for both teams, but it had another meaning for Moravian.
Moravian, in their first ever football contest in the Centennial Conference, beat McDaniel 43-14 in the Terror’s first game of their conference schedule last Saturday in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
McDaniel, hoping to even up their record after a loss last week to powerhouse opponent Bridgewater, fell behind their new foe early and would even chip away at the deficit till it was far too late. At the half, Moravian led 13-0; a game easily in reach for McDaniel. A quarter later, it was 36-0. Moravian’s three-headed rushing attack of Tyler and Morgan deRouen along with Tyler McCambridge rushed for 210 yards on the day. Through the first two games of the season, the Terror have been outgained on the ground 524-141.
Hoping to gain yards elsewhere, 5th year senior Brad Baer and Tom Weinrich combined for 249 yards passing at the quarterback position. Junior running back Eric Zwilsky would score two touchdowns on late-drives in the game, but by then, it only made the box score look a little better.
McDaniel will return to the Hill next Saturday to face nonconference opponent, Catholic, and hope to put themselves in the win-column in front of the home crowd.
