NORTH EAST, Pa. – General McLane’s defense turned in another dominant effort in a 21-6 win over North East on Thursday.
The win moves the Lancers to 3-1 overall and 2-0 in Region 5.
The Lancers led 7-0 at the half on the strength of a Magnus Lloyd 20-yard touchdown run.
GM extended the lead to 14-0 with just over eight minutes to go in the third quarter, as Dylan Sheeder connected with Kyle Birkmire on a 24-yard touchdown pass.
North East (0-4, 0-2 Region 5) got on the board just two minutes later, as Jackson Humes found Jamari Curlett on a five-yard pitch and catch to make it 14-6.
McLane’s defense stood tall, however, and with just under five minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, Sheeder put the finishing touches on the win with an eight-yard touchdown pass to Landon Laskey.
GM also intercepted a trio of passes on defense courtesy of Aaron Cornejo-Lopez, Owen Martin, and Kyle Cousins.
The Lancers look to make it four in a row when they travel to Corry next Friday, while North East is at Fort LeBoeuf next Friday.
