Woodland Hills blitzes Fox Chapel
Fox Chapel couldn’t afford to fall behind against Woodland Hills, which recently got star running back Lafayette Pitts back from an injury.
But that’s exactly what happened Friday night: The Foxes yielded 35 first-quarter points and fell, 38-7, in a Quad East Conference game at James Burk Athletic Complex.
Pitts rushed for 138 yards on eight carries and scored on runs of 25, 42 and 48 yards for the 10th-ranked Wolverines (3-3, 3-1), who have won two in a row after a 1-3 start. Ejuan Price returned an interception 26 yards for a touchdown.
The Foxes (1-5, 1-2) played their second straight game without standout running back Montay Green, who sat out for a school-related matter. Two quarterbacks saw time for the second consecutive week. Tony Pompeo was 3 for 13 for 39 yards and three interceptions; Alex Romango was 3 for 5 for 46 yards and a touchdown.
Receiver Tre Bradley caught five passes for 59 yards for the Foxes, who were outgained, 242-108.
