EAST ORANGE, NJ - The Campus High Panthers Football team was soundly defeated on Saturday by the Montclair Mounties.
 
Junior running back Daniel Webb took the game’s opening kickoff down the field to the tune of a 90-yard touchdown, helping the Mounties get the upper hand in what became a 55-10 win over East Orange at Woodman Field.
 
“It couldn’t have started any better for us,” Montclair head coach John Fiore said about Webb’s touchdown run. “Someone had the right mind to kick the ball to Daniel and he was off.”
 
 
It was the first of Webb’s five touchdowns on the day. He had 177 yards on 10 carries and four touchdowns rushing out of the backfield.
 
“We were extremely focused,” Fiore said. “We had two great practices before the game and we were definitely ready.”
 
Josh Crawford scored on a 25-yard run to make the score 14-0, then Webb had a 20-yard TD run to push the lead to 21-0 with 6:01 left in the first quarter.
 
“With our hurry-up offense, we usually get 65-70 plays,” Fiore said. “But we scored so fast on drives that limited that.”

 
East Orange (3-1) cut the lead to 21-7 on a 5-yard run from Giovanni Shine with less than a minute to go in the first quarter, but the Mounties took total command in the second quarter.
 
Quarterback Tarrin Earle, hit receiver D.J. Williams for a 62-yard touchdown pass to push the lead to 28-7.
From that point, Daniel Webb scored on runs of 3 yards, 15 yards and 42 yards to push the lead to 48-7.
 
“It was the perfect storm,” Fiore said. “The worst thing that could have happened was watching Passaic County Tech beat up Union City after we beat PCTI. So they just thought they could roll over Union City. That didn’t happen. We dropped about six passes. We were not mentally focused for that game.”
 
Fiore credited the play of second-team linebackers Tyler Diggs and Matt Niemann for their play against East Orange. “They did a great job after we pulled our starters,” Fiore said. “Our defense played well. They played lights out. A whole cast of characters played well for us offensively. They did their job.”
 
Earle completed six of 10 passes for 160 yards and the touchdown to Williams, who had 90 yards receiving and the big touchdown.
 
“I’ve said it before that the only one who can beat us is ourselves,” Fiore said. “I truly believe that. We could take on the big boy Parochials without a problem. East Orange is a very good team. They could win two more games before the state playoffs. I don’t think people look at them as a good team, but they are very good.”
