Powerhouse Wesley pulls away from Mustangs

stevenson-vs-wesley

It was hard to know what to expect from the Stevenson football team in their first-ever appearance in the NCAA Tournament. On Saturday in Dover, DE, playing national powerhouse Wesley College, the Mustangs had some strong moments, but the Wolverines were able to pull away for a 38-17 victory.

In what would prove to be their final game of the season the No. 20 Mustangs led the No. 18 Wolverines 7-0 after the first quarter when Preston Addo hauled in a 20-yard touchdown pass from Dan Williams.

The Wolverines looked like they were going to break away in the second half when Eric Speidel kicked in a 23-yard field goal and Bryce Shade caught a seven-yard touchdown pass from Nick Falkenberg to take a 10-7 lead. However, Tim Sternfeld tied the game with a 30-yard field goal with 2:13 remaining in the second quarter.

It was after that the Wolverines showed their postseason and big-game experience. Shade caught a second touchdown pass with just six second remaining before halftime to give the Wolverines a 17-10 lead at the break. Out of the break Jamar Baynard scored on a six-yard touchdown run.

Stevenson did respond when Devin Salisbury broke lose for an 80-yard touchdown reception, but the Mustangs couldn’t build on the huge play.

Wesley added to their lead with two unanswered touchdowns in the fourth quarter, both runs by Baynard. He finished the game with 265 yards on the ground and three scores. Stevenson out-gained the Wolverines through the air as William passed for 323 yards and two scores, but he also had two interceptions and the team had only 34 yards on the ground.

Stevenson sophomore Izaiha Pittsbu finished the game with a career-high 17 tackles. Freshman Zach May had 15 more. Isaac Boy and Ashton Leschke had 13 and 11 takedowns, respectively. A first quarter interception by Mike Datu extended the Mustangs streak of takeaways to 44-straight games.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
