SMYRNA – When I look at the final score of the game. I have to sit back and just shake my head. The Eagles of Smyrna were a balance team whereas the colonials of William Penn was very unbalanced Saturday night .
Penn couldn’t run the ball nor pass the ball simply resembling a junior varsity team playing way out of their league, Shame, Shame, Shame.
Smyrna senior quarterback Nolan Henderson completed 8 of 15 passes for 249 yards and two touchdowns. In the second quarter Henderson completed a pass over the middle to William Knight on a seam route. The junior running back escape the colonials defensive back enroute to an 89-yard score, putting Smyrna up 24-0 in the second quarter.
The Eagles (11-0) advances to their second consecutive state championship game, against the top-seeded Middletown Cavilers (11-0) at 1 p.m. next Saturday at Delaware Stadium.
