MORRISTOWN, NJ - Senior Jordan Powell scored three touchdowns in the first quarter, sparking Morristown's 42-7 football victory over Morris Knolls on Saturday.
Junior Ricky Lorenzo scored twice, and senior Dallas McCall had a touchdown as the Colonials raced to a 47-7 advantage before the break.
Cody Heaton and Matthew McNally led the defense, while Andrew Benvenuto recovered a fumble for Morristown on Morris Knoll’s 43 yard line. Justin Burke picked off a pass intended for Morris Knolls on their three yard line.
The exciting game took a break at half time to allow the Homecoming Court to take the field. Representatives from each grade were present on the field, although the focus led up to the senior court, king and queen.
Immediately following, Morristown High Cheerleaders took the field to display their halftime performance. The crowd enjoyed the energy and exciting moves throughout their routines.
To conclude the halftime performance, The Morristown High Marching Band played two songs, both of which highlighted senior members. Last week, the marching band competed in a competition in Mt. Olive, where they finished first in their division, won best percussion, and best color guard. The band will be performing at MetLife Stadium Nov. 1.
Morristown High’s Homecoming Game was a great showing for everyone involved.
