Morristown Football Falls to Montclair; 47 - 6 During Homecoming Game

MORRISTOWN, NJ – The Morristown football team won’t want to hear Daniel Webb’s name called over the PA address for a while.
Webb, a highly-regarded junior running back for Montclair, scored five touchdowns in three different ways to single-handedly wreck Morristown’s homecoming, as the Mounties rolled to a 47-6 victory over the Colonials on Saturday afternoon.
The loss drops to Morristown to 1-5 on the season, and formally eliminated the Colonials from postseason contention for a fifth straight season.
The Mounties got the ball to begin the game, and it took the visitors less than two minutes to get on the board. Montclair went 82 yards in just six plays, and the drive was capped off by a 39 yard run from Webb up the left sideline to make it 7-0 with 10:17 remaining in the opening quarter.
On Morristown’s first drive, Morristown went three-and-out after a sack on a 3rd & 4 from the Colonials 32. Montclair seemed to have immediately doubled the lead on its first play from scrimmage, but Morristown’s Andrew Chilson forced and recovered a fumble four yards from his own end zone to keep it 7-0 still early in the first.
However, on third down on the ensuing drive, Morristown fumbled the ball away to the Mounties, and Webb promptly took a hand-off 19 yards to the house. Morristown’s _ _ blocked the extra point, and it remained 13-0 Montclair.
After a Morristown drive stalled despite a fourteen-yard completion from Jake Buchner to Josh Szott to start it, Montclair marched right down the field again and scored. The eight-play drive was capped off by a 19 yard reception by Robert Nicholas from Mounties QB Tarrin Earle.

Morristown was able to capitalize on a Montclair error in the second quarter to get on the board. A roughing the punter infraction on the Mounties allowed Morristown to score, when Buchner found Szott on an out route for an 18-yard touchdown. The extra point struck the post to keep the score at 21-6.
But just when it appeared the Colonials won some momentum back, it was Webb again to ruin the Colonials day. This time, he took the ensuing kickoff 86 yards to pay dirt to make it 28- with 6:12 to go in the half. And then, after a quick Colonials three and out, Webb then ran a punt back 44 yards for a score to make it a four-score game.
And to add to his monster day, Webb caught a 36-yard pass from Earle with 50 seconds half to put the running clock rule in effect with the scoreboard showing 41-6.
With reserves on the field in the second half, Montclair added a fourth quarter touchdown on a six yard dash from Jamond Raymond to close out the scoring.
