In front of a crowd of 792, the Northampton Football Yellowjackets dominated a talented, but very young Atlantic Shores squad 37-7.
The Jacket offense was truly one-dimensional–that is, Carlton Smith, who wears #1, rumbled through the Seahawks defense all night long. The ground and pound attack was relentless, and just too much for the undersized Atlantic Shores.
The defense, led by Tripp Westcoat, Corey Smith, Cameron Glennon, and Josh Splawn was in control of the line of scrimmage the entire game.
Northampton jumped to an early 20-0 on the power running of Carlton Smith, however, Atlantic Shores had a glimmer of hope late in the first half when they connected on a long pass for a touchdown. This was indeed the play of the game, as the tight end made a remarkable, Odell Beckham style one-handed grab and then leaped for the pylon.
Northampton quickly answered with a touchdown of their own, with only 1 minute left in the half.
Up 27 -7 to begin the 2nd half, Tripp Westcoat’s special teams play sealed the win early. After Core Smith blocked a punt, Westcoat caught the ball in the end zone for a touchdown. Westcoat later added a 33-yard field goal.
The Northampton Football Yellow Jackets will host Colonel Richardson (Federalsburg, MD) on Friday, October 19 @ 7p. This is a non-conference game.
