PIEDMONT — The Piedmont High football team exploded for five touchdowns to start the second half and routed visiting Moreau Catholic 47-7 in a Bay Shore Athletic League game Friday night.
Junior quarterback Jeremy George threw for an efficient 148 yards — to seven receivers — and two touchdowns, and ran for 95 yards and one touchdown to lead Piedmont (6-2, 4-0 BSAL) to its sixth straight win.
The Highlanders' defense, after giving up an early score to Moreau Catholic (2-6, 1-4), shut down the Mariners, holding the visitors to only 102 yards total offense.
After having two big plays called back on penalties in the first half and missing several scoring chances, Piedmont led by only 12-7 at halftime. But after the break, the Highlanders mixed up their offense, alternating their unique A-11 set with a more traditional formation.
Scoring in the second-half blitz for Piedmont were George on a 23-yard keeper, Joey Andrada on a 23-yard pass from George, Keith Reid on a 5-yard run, Bryce Chu on a 14-yard pass from George, and Devin Brown on a 9-yard pass from Ryan Lipkin.
Highlander kicker Jordan Remer connected on a 25-yard field goal and six extra points, and struck several booming kickoffs.
