   NEWARK (SEP 26 14) – The Pal-Mac Red Raiders picked up their third football win, knocking off Newark on homecoming Friday night, 19-0.

   The evening got off to a rocky start for Newark when the field lights wouldn’t come on and the homecoming festivities had to be switched around at the last minute while everyone – it was a large crowd – waited for the right person to come and hit the right switch.
   Pal-Mac did all the scoring the game would provide in the first half, senior quarterback Bryce Ryder connecting with Brandon Hawkins on a 20-yard reception that capped a 11-play, 61-yard drive.
   The Raiders capitalized on a botched punt attempt – the ball sailed over kicker DeShon Cobb’s head for a 21-yard loss – to score in four plays on a shortened field: Devin Soliday zipped around right end for a 14-yard scoring scamper.
   A late drive with 51 yards in pass plays put Pal-Mac in the end zone with just 14 seconds in the half, Hawkins again hitting paydirt on a 30-yard reception.
Pal-Mac's Brandon Hawkins is into the Newark secondary on
a long play Friday night. Chasing him are Newark's Casey
Lead (51), Dan Cavallaro (35) and Justin Patterson (52).

   Newark was scrambling from the outset with a quarterback problem. Jacob Kowaleski, who played the role in modified ball and as a jayvee – but who wasn’t out for football last year – guided the Reds until he was hurt late in the game. He had to replace starting QB Anthony Mashewske, who broke his wrist the week prior.
   Penalties hurt Newark throughout the game, but the biggest pain came on the first possession of the third quarter when Kowaleski took the ball up the left side of the field for a 70-yard touchdown, only to see the score wiped off the scoreboard because of a holding call.
   Soliday led the Pal-Mac rushers with 105 yards in 19 carries and a touchdown; Hawkins scored twice and amassed 80 yards in receptions. Jose Santell made the only pass reception of the game for Newark – for 47 yards. The Reds drop to 0-4 with the loss.

Ben Bracy (7) closes in. Hakeem Shorter (1) was the decoy on the play.
