West Allegheny bounces back with huge win over Hampton. 


Right from kickoff West A set the tempo against the Talbots. Kyle Marett got things rolling with a 65-yard touchdown on the first play from scrimmage on a sweep to the near sideline outrunning Hampton’s backs and secondary. 17 seconds in West A led 7-0. Just over 5 minutes later Kyle Marett would run in his second touchdown on a 1-yard score to increase the Indian lead to 14-0. But, the Talbots would not go away late in the 1st quarter thanks to a 9-yard touchdown pass from Matt Dematteo to Will Schuit to the near side of the endzone, to cut the lead in half 14-7 with 1:33 remaining in the 1st quarter. 


But that would be all of the Talbots scoring as West A never looked back after allowing one touchdown pass. A minute sixteen seconds into the second quarter Kyle Marett would pick up the hat trick with a 4-yard touchdown run to add to West A’s lead 21-7. 


With 6:02 remaining in the 3rd quarter Paul Newton would add to the lead with a 1-yard touchdown run to make the score 28-7. Gavin Miller would later throw 2 touchdown passes to Brayden Holton and Devin Zirwas. The Indians would put 42 points on the Talbots and hold Hampton to 7 points. 


   Gavin Miller completed 10 of his 17 passes for 149-yards, 2 touchdowns and 0 interceptions. Kyle Marett would lead the Indians in rushing with 8 carries for in 80-yards, and 3 touchdowns all coming in the 1st half. West A would end with 141-yards rushing, 149-yards passing to finish the night with 290-yards of total offense. 


Matt Dematteo only completed 8 of his 23 passes, for 90-yards, 1 touchdown, and 3 interceptions. Luke Lindgren would once again lead the game in rushing yards with 92-yards in 23 carries. Hampton would end the night with 130-yards rushing, 90-yards passing, to finish with 220-yards of total offense.
