Devonte Williams ran for 203 yards and two touchdowns against King’s College. The Mustangs totaled 270 yards and five scores on the ground in the victory.

With a dominant performance on the ground the No. 14 Stevenson football team earned a 41-20 victory over King’s College to remain undefeated with an 8-0 record on Saturday. Devonte Williams led the impressive ground game with 203 yards, averaging 7.3 yards per carry, and two touchdowns. The team overall out-rushed the Monarch’s 270-57 and scored five touchdowns on the ground.

It only took the Mustangs four plays to score their first touchdown. Williams blocked a punt by Eric Haenggi to set Stevenson up just eight yards away from the endzone. Dontea Ayres capped off the quick drive with a one-yard touchdown run; his first of three rushing touchdowns in the game.

King’s responded with a touchdown drive that saw Zach Whitehead complete a 21-yard touchdown pass to Marquis Miller to tie the game, but the Mustangs didn’t let up and scored on their next three drives. This time it was Williams who got into the endzone for the first time in the game off a 32-yard touchdown run. Ayres pushed into the endzone with a two-yard score on Stevenson’s next drive. After another three-and-out by Wilkes, Ayers scored for a third time in the first 23 minutes of the game with a three-yard touchdown run to give the Mustangs a 27-7 led at halftime.

Stevenson wouldn’t have nearly as much success to start the second half, getting shutout in the third quarter while King’s got back into the endzone with a 36-yard touchdown pass from Whitehead to Tyler Marroni.

The Mustangs, however, were able to hold off King’s and got the spark back to their offense as they continued to build their lead.

Tim Sternfeld converted a 30-yard field goal on Stevenson’s ensuing drive. Williams then ran into the endzone from 32 yards out to take 38-14 lead in the fourth quarter.

King’s scored one more touchdown when Mike Palmer caught a four-yard pass, but looking to get a two-point conversion, the Monarch’s failed to keep it a 38-20 game. But there just wasn’t enough time for the Monarchs to try to come back. Sternfield scored once more Stevenson with only 39 seconds left to secure the three-touchdown victory.

The Mustangs will host Wilkes on Saturday, Nov. 5 at 1 pm with an opportunity to clinch the MAC title and NCAA tournament bid. The Mustangs need just one victory in their final two games to clinch the conference title.

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.
