Golden Elks Trample Warriors 44-0 In Home Opener

    It didn't take long for the Elkton Golden Elks to establish this year, the first under rookie Head Coach Sean Lenz, has the potential to be a very good year. On the second play from scrimmage, senior running back and Team Co-Captain Kyle Thomas took a handoff up the middle, broke a tackle, skipped to the outside, broke free and left the Havre de Grace Warriors in his wake as he bolted for a 63-yard touchdown run.

     From that moment, it was all Elks. Niles Scott added a 2-yard touchdown run. Quarterback Javin Taylor connected for three touchdown passes in the first half. Lawrence Ray caught touchdown passes of 46-yards and 10-yards while David Corey caught the final touchdown pass of the half, a 10-yard strike. The Elks offense racked up 287 yards of offense in the first half.

     On the defensive side of the ball, the Elks were nothing if not dominant.  They held the visiting Warriors scoreless throughout and the starters only surrendered ten offensive yards in the first half and added two points of their own on a safety in the first quarter.

     With the clock on continuous run after a halftime score of 37-0, Elkton added one more score on a 24-yard run by Tre'Shawn Webster.

     For his first game as a head coach, Sean Lenz was pleasantly surprised. "I knew they would play well, "said Lenz, "The kids bought in since I got here. They have been in the weight room, they have paid attention at practice. This is a very good start for us."  In spite of the lopsided score, Lenz believes there are still lessons for his team to learn. "The tape will tell the story. I am pleased. We were able to get out healthy," said Lenz. "We threw the ball better than I thought we would, but we didn't run the ball as well as I thought."

     Lenz was still very happy to be 1-0 as a head coach. "What I am most pleased with, only two penalties and they were on kickoffs. It is a good place to be, it was a great start."
